I was at DFW today, too!
...and I'm a couple hours east of you.

I've seen some crazy ones, but this is the most off...meet lesbian singles in my area. I am single and looking, but there is no way I'm a lesbian, and I'm really trying to figure out how Google ads would ever think I am.

"Running is a big question mark that's there each and every day. It asks you, 'Are you going to be a wimp or are you going to be strong today?'" - Peter Maher
"Running long and hard is an ideal antidepressant, since it's hard to run and feel sorry for yourself at the same time. Also, there are those hours of clearheadedness that follow a long run." -Monte Davis

Well good afternoon to you, too.
Some are definitely driven by a "retargeting" cookie, based on sites I've visited recently. Others are mass market ads.
Including the following animated ad for kids diapers (definitely not adults from the other parts of the animation) as it celebrates your first flush:
Yes, the app is intended for children who can't yet manage a bowel movement, but own a Smartphone or Tablet.
The process is the goal.
Men heap together the mistakes of their lives, and create a monster they call Destiny.
I've been impressed by RA's retargeted ads. If I do some searches on Treadmills, I get treadmill ads, cruises, I get cruise ads, even specific products I look at on amazon and I get ads for those specific products.
I just don't understand the sexual addiction ad I saw this morning!

I know a couple kids who were "playing games" (on the phone) before they were done w/ potty training. There's a market!
I am getting ads urging me to buy the dvds for the show Smash. A show I never ever want to see. The only thing I can figure on this one is that I have viewed stuff about Les Mis.
Also today I got an ad urging me to switch to biking. Hahahahahaha.
And once again Mr. Wizard (aka: Stevie Ray) explains the internet.
I probably get more Funky Buddha Hot House Yoga ads than anything else. Can't figure that out. They have been showing steadily for about 6 months.

Instant FTP site.
Whoa. I haven't encountered the concept of "ftp site" since, I dunno, 1994?
my moobs are fine thank you very much.
I bought myself a reflective running jacket.
It sits in the corner reading works by Descartes and Proust.
Bwahahahaha!!! Where were you traveling on the 'net to cue THAT ad?!
Huh...doesn't look like any party I've ever attended....
well done, Mr Chang, but i really, truly don't care.
Just got an ad for Carnival Cruises...they couldn't PAY me enough to ride around on one of their vomitorium shit-factories.
Mind you, I'm a 40 year old woman...I get this and am still regularly seeing the ad for the Marine Motor Mechanics school. Seriously, no one wants me fixing their boat engine.
