And some grannies are only in their early 40's. :cool:

With Meryl they would be. :D
It would be fascinating to have a good talk with her. A remarkable actor. Since I don't find her sexy-beautiful, it would be easy to be honourable, but not so sure about some of the early 40's women around...!! :wub :banana
(For those of you still in your 20's or even teens, 40+ must seem ancient, but let me tell you: "Just you wait and see when you get older!!)

They're generated more based on the content of the forum. You're in a "Chat" forum. It's detected that and is offering Ads accordingly ;)

"Do you want to watch a movie?"

"Are you a Vampire or Werewolf?"

Are these ads trying to suggest that we should watch Twilight? :angry :yuck:

It's the advertisers using Adwords (or not using effectively - if new to Adwords) in Google. They are likely using a "broad" keyword selection for their campaigns (as opposed to excat, phrase, negative, and other targeted techniques). This will significantly increase their reach online (and of course bemusement and even annoyance), but not necessarily conversions.

If Google searchers reach this forums via Google search by typing - chat f1 NZ, it may trigger the Gay chat ads and note that it's at No. 1 (top), as "chat" (in the ad) matches chat in PC World Chat (the link above), which Google gives priority placement at that position (as all advertisers have to bid for placement), based on "relevancy", no. of advertisers, and possibly on bidding costs - if an advertiser pays a "lot" for bidding to seek the top position.

But advertisers will be paying more, by using - chat - as a broad search - as will likely get a lot of impressions - both in the search network and content network (i.e. adsense in sites), and partner networks. It also increases the risk of any competition to repeatedly click on their ads to increase their click cost. Also a new feature by Google: if you do click on sponsored/adsense ads - those excat same ads may reappear on future sites you visit. Called re marketing or something.

Well, as it turns out, the Google cars were also fitted with a neural cortex scanner to data match your subliminal thoughts with your ip address for better advertisement targeting.
So maybe you are and you just don't know it yet ... :D

I thought they canned that project.

The ink was twice the price of HP's, and stuck to paper like photons to a mirror.

Of course, they wouldn't can a project that worked that well!

[Gotta love the Lucas-bashing bandwagon]
