I hadn't seen them in a while, since I had been a contributor (and will be again soon - I'm just lazy and not around a computer as much except to write). I just noticed an ad claiming to show me how to "Use secret laws of physics and your subconscious mind to create wealth?"

Is that honestly the best science-themed stuff that google can find? Does anyone ever actually click on these?

Google uses keywords to randomly place ads.
If you show ads on your site you can customize google and tell it not to show certain ads.
This is something I need to do as my ggogle ads (on my site not here) keep advertising Kia Cars / Kia Motors :uhh:
Which maybe my name but sure is nothing to do with my content.
I even have a full compliment of Metatags :rolleyes:

All right, someone has to sticky this. Look what just appeared on the GD front page:

http://www.cubanfoodmarket.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=CFM&Product_Code=TP0001 [Broken]

When you hover the cursor over it, it reads "Every Cuban's dream." Apparently, they dream about wiping their cracks with Castro's face.
