Got some strange ad's on here lately....

Sometimes the pop-up ads on this site are as interesting as the threads themselves, sometimes not.

I just had one in the sidebar for chronic depression, pretty strange. Now I have one with a survey for bi-polar disorder...like I'm going to click on that crap....not.

The one's I really don't like are the ones that when you pass your cursor over, they become instantly full screen size and continue merrily on their way, extolling the virtues of something you aren't interested in...at all......

and, they are a PITA to get rid of so you can continue to what you really logged on for......

Nice. I haven't seen the mental health ones.

I couldn't get anyone to take the bait on my ad post, wondering who placed the Shoe Carnival banners. Sesame Street

I would have to assume that there are companies are brokering these things out: ie Shoe Carnival, pay us "X" and we will place banners for you at 500 sites with x million combined views per month.

Do you live with a woman who wears shoes?

Could be that it was what's called an "interest based ad".

"WHAT IS "INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING"?
Just what it says: advertising that is delivered to you based on your likely interests. This type of advertising tries to make the ads you see more relevant based on the types of sites that you visit on the Web. With interest-based advertising, you receive ads and offers for products and services that are more likely to be useful to you.
For example, a sporting goods manufacturer might work with an advertising network that collects and uses interest-based information to deliver ads to the browsers of users that have recently visited sports-related sites. Or an airline might direct ads to users that recently visited travel-themed Web sites."

I'm sure this week will have me on the road somewhere, dealing with a truck wreck. This weather brings out the worse in heavy trucks and icy roads and semi's don't mix well.

I spent Friday afternoon checking drivers log books at one of our plants. Amazing how creative some drivers are and how unforgiving the DOT is..........

Great job. Sometimes I think there is one of our drivers that has a doll with my face on it and he's sticking pins in it in hopes I'll go away.

Gonna be a helluva week I suspect. BTW....

I'm slow because I'm old and cold.

......need some more alcoholic elixir I guess.
