Do you read the ads? Do you click on them?

I don't. If there is something I need or want to buy, I do a web search for the product and then go to the vendor's websites. I don't need help doing this.

Right now, There's an ad for JC Pennys at the top of the screen. I suspect my wife has been shopping on the computer.

It is a bad trend and I don't like it either. But .... I don't want to live like OBL in Abbottabad, so, here we are.

I had a mental block on that info.Now it's back to the foil hat and living in a fox hole.See you guys after the end on 12-21-12.

They also know about all the porn you watch too,because they are also watching it.
This is my signature line. There are many like it but this one is mine.

What a pain in the transom.

Welcome to the digital age sir, happened about 10 years ago.

Please keep what you posted above to yourself though, we don't want others to figure it out too
