do you live in ontario? Because mine says Texas and has the same chick, not to mention the one I posted above. And a classmates.com ad that had texas on it.

Does everyone know where I live? :yodac:

Single, fat, gen-80's, and dumb:
I get the eighties tee's one all the time. And Matchmaker.com -but it doesn't correspond to your state, mine usually says Texas or Missouri and I live in Colorado, so... And the IQ test one usually comes up. I get the FF one about once every week, and expedia.com travel about twice a week... I hate their ads. Oh - and the woman in the pink bikini: *pukes all over computer* Get rid of the cowboy hat and find a prettier face, please, LF!!!

It's probably not just for us gamers, it's directed at the U.S. as a whole. There is some absurd number like over 60% of the country is technically obese. Though I'm thinking it's more then that for some reason. :/

No, seriously, I don't see any ads. :p

I don't get any ads at home due to my firewall and pop-up blocker, but I get banner ads on the school computer. (sssshhhhhh! It'll be our secret)

I get a combination of all the aforementioned ads. I've also seen some Bush ads. Considering the political topics I've seen, the GOP might want to find an audience that's more willing to listen :/

Ironically, I also see SBC Yahoo! DSL ads. My family's been SBC DSL users for a year now.:rolleyes:

:lol: Great ad for IE there ;)

People should get popupblocker in the very least and probably a firewall as well. Browsing is much quicker, even with running the extra software :) *nods*
