Of late, I've been getting almost exclusively Regent University ads on the EF banner headers. Since Regent is the love child of Pat Robertson and his delusions of adequacy, I'm not quite sure why it is that it is so persistant on my forum reading here. It's not like Regent is flooding the pages over at FB (just everything else under the sun), so I'm not sure why it is that EF has garnered this 'honor'.
Now, it's Disney World. Just about as bad as Regent Uni.
How do you tell them apart?
I bought a new clerical shirt online recently - for a job interview - and ever since have been haunted by variations of this pop-up add. I am not sure which of the two individuals I find more disconcerting ....
I only get advertisement for an online bookshop (Bokus). But I get this "Big Brother sees you-feeling", one of the books they advertise is a book I'e already bought. The know what I am interested in! Maybe Google has told them, they know too much about me.
We are famous for "Stockholm syndrome": "Q: Hey, what's up with Matt? His Dad is on social security, his mom got laid off, his sister's kids get free school lunches, he collects federal financial aid for college, and he only makes minimum wage working at Walmarts. Yet he keeps talking about how we need to cut taxes for the wealthy and quit spending so much on social programs. A: Yeah, he thinks he's going to be a millionaire soon. He's got Economic Stockholm Syndrome." (Urban Dictionary)
