Internet Ad Fraud

I had the dubious pleasure of playing whack the mole with a browser hijacker the last few days. What it apparently did was to make it seem as though I were clicking on various internet ads, hundreds of times a minute. Clean ones, thankfully, ranging from Honda automobiles to retirement communities. The only purpose I can think of is to cheat the buyers of those ads if they are paying per number of clicks.

Reviewing my history, my best guess is that my daughter picked it up by following one link too many at Amazon.com's children's games and toys category.

The perpetrator may be "ads.targetedbanner.biz". One of the fraud victims may be "edmunds.com". Of necessity, I had to delete my cache and cookies several times manually in addition to what my security programs were doing so I did not preserve the information.

Kinkiness Is A Relative Thing After All

SayUncle is impressed by men getting their hair cut by scantily-clad, attractive young women. On my part, I only trust old guys with bad breath who talk a lot, sometimes with an accent, to cut my hair.

I do, however, prefer pretty young girls, who smell nice, to clean my teeth with their horrible, painful, sharp instruments that make strange sounds. It's the closest I'll ever get to those degenerate, San Francisco kind of SM Bondage things people talk about.

Happy Greek Independence Day


I know You
By the Fearsome Edge of the Sword
I know You
By the Face which with Anguish Measures the Earth
Reborn from the Sacred Bones of the Greeks
And as Brave as You ever were
Hail O Hail, Liberty.

On Philosophy And Theology

"A philosopher," said the theologian, "is like a blind man in a darkened room looking for a black cat that isn't there.""That's right," the philosopher replied, "and if he were a theologian, he'd find it."

Religion is an acquired neurosis, possibly a psychosis. Theology is a man studying a disfiguring disease who looks into a mirror and says, "But on me it might looks good".

Sears Sucks

I bought a Kitchenaid refrigerator about eight months ago. It came time to change the water filter. I looked in the manual and it told me I needed Model #T1RFWB2, Part # 4396711. I went to the local Sears, information in hand, and a very nice young lady told me that there's no such thing. I went back home and took out the old water filter. It was Model #T2RFWG2, Part #4396841. One more time back to Sears, new information in hand. The salesman tells me there's no such thing. He asks, "What does it look like?" I say, "It's long and purple and the 'cap' does not seal without it". He says, "It's probably this one". Model #T1RFKB1, Part #469030. It is.

Arctic Tale

Me: "Why do polar bears have to eat seals? Why can't they just go to McDonald's?
Daughter: "Because that's how God made the world".

Yeah, I'm An Idiot

The baby has been acting distracted, with loss of appetite, a slight temperature and a slightly runny nose. I thought it was a mild cold or flu. Turns out that she's about two-thirds of the way through growing four new teeth. I was doing the right thing without knowing the reason why, though, by giving her Motrin as needed.

She's such a tough and goodhearted kid. She never complains or whines.

Well, If It Ain't Spring, It'll Do 'ntil A Real Spring Comes Along

Yesterday we went up to a balmy 54 degrees. I wore shorts and a tee-shirt, with topsiders and no socks, taking my daughter to school in the morning, even though the temperature was still in the 30s. And I threw my winter coat in the garbage.

And, yes, we're watching "No Country For Old Men".

The Pot Calling The Cattle Black

Geraldine Ferraro claims that Obama would not be where he is were he not black. (H/t Dana Pico)

Maybe so, but she is no one to talk: (Video contains profanity and racist language.)

A New Blog

Sheepshaped Wolf? Very nice pictures.

Update: No. Wolf In Sheep's Clothing is the proper translation.

My Drinking Problem

I like to drink whiskey. My wife thinks I should drink red wine. I drink it but don't like it. My dental hygienist expresses her displeasure about the red wine stains on my teeth with sharp, painful insruments that make strange sounds. I'm dreaming about being a toothless, gay hermit in Appalachia with a backyard still.
