Random RA ads (Read 1867 times)

    Yeah, targeted ads seem to be very very good at showing me ads for products (or similar products) THAT I JUST BOUGHT.

     

    That's nice.

     

    Dammit, I didn't mean to page fault.  Fooey.

     

    Version two: Dammit, I didn't mean to Bob Seger the thread.

     

      Page fault. Heh.

       

      You see ads?? Cheapskate.

        Yeah.  FWIW, a lot of the ads are targeted by browse history and, apparently, stuff you've looked at on certain sites.

         

        Which is why I get a lot of shoe ads after visiting runningwarehouse and certain fitness-y things after checking stuff on the clymb.

         

        So.

         

        Ummm.

         

        This seems to be the case less than half the time, though (including the A&E ads.  I should really be seeing 29er mountain bikes and sports bras if Google is directing its ads at things I've recently been researching)...now I have ads for online nursing degrees and business software and some Dragon shoes that I've never before seen (and think are pretty freakin' fugly).

        She was not strong. She was valiant. Radiant. Brave and broken. The beauty she discovered in the aftermath was unparalleled to anything she had known before, because it had come at such a cost.

          I leave 'em up...sometimes I see stuff intriguing enough to click, just for added $ to Eric.  I should click on those Dragon shoes.  I wonder what kind of highway robbery is involved in those funked-up kicks.

              I was getting Christian Mingle (or something on that order) for a while.  That was sorta weird, since I'm quite happily married to an Atheist. Tongue

                   I elect to see the ads I pay not to see on this computer.  I think.  I should see if I am still up to date.

                    I manage the calendars for the marathon maniacs (in which I will list marathons and ultras) as well as the half fanatics (in which I will list half marathons and tweener stuff between 13.1 and 26.1).

                     

                    A little while ago, I received a bunch of requests for the half fanatic calendar from a very motivated member who wants to do a lot of those water buffalo extreeme spartan beast Wipe Out events.  One problem, they are all shorter than a half marathon.  I know this because I went to each and every event site and searched.  Which was not easy... turns out that these events are wholly unconcerned with distance and they don't all promote how long they are.  It's all about extreeme water buffalo obstacle stuff.  Heck, the Spartan Beast events just say "the course is between 10 and 12 miles". Fine, whatever, I don't care.  So I didn't list them.

                     

                    Now guess what all my ads are.

                     

                      But you know you want to be an extreeme runner, right?

                        BTW, the tagline of the Spartan Beast is...
