I must say, some of the adds are a riot

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

One is for Jesus on Dino shirts, is this a joke, is this just the google engine? Funny.

Three people have unfriended you... oooh... wow, and I care because? Though I could see how this could be important for our younger, living on the web all the time, youth (and older folks too).

But so far my favorite is the RW nutso trying to sell his survivalist book since you know, an economist (never mentioned by name) who predicted the 2008 crash, well predicts the economic collapse of the US by 2013... RIOTS OF BROWN PEOPLE I tell you, hungry, food stamp, poor people RUN!!! HIDE UNDER THE BED.

All I am saying is... they are funny.

Of course there is the one from a guy running for the California Legislature. Perhaps I missed it, but we already had elections, right?

Some are not surprising... like the Nexus 7 adds, but some of these... almost expecting to see an add for Glen Beck... now that is a riot waiting to happen.

Just sharing... that is all.

5. I hope we don't end up with a lot of automated video ads that use huge bandwidth.

I notice on other sites that carry those type of ads that the speeds of the page loading and such is pathetic.

6. Yes, let's draw attention to the fact that you are seeing ads.

Perhaps another major announcement is in order. Or is that not subtle enough?
