Earn a Bronze merit badge for reading about Gay Rights!!!
In the realm of false achievement….
I turned over to Google News, & this pops up:
If that’s too small to read, here’s what it says:
Welcome to Google News Badges
Collect private badges for your favorite topics. The more you read, the more your badges level up: you can reach Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, and finally Ultimate. Keep your badges to yourself — or show them off to your friends!
For example, if you keep reading articles about Gay Rights, it will earn you a Bronze badge.
Okay, now, I like a lot of Google stuff — the grand search engine itself, Gmail, Google Docs, Picasa, the new social networking tool Google+ —
— but this? Merit badges for reading news stories?
I don’t want a Bronze Badge for reading about Gay Rights.
What I want is my rights.Tags: Google
