Been getting this beautiful ad on the right side of the screen yesterday and today.

How do you guys know so much about me?

I'm not sure how all of that works. I do know that when I've done work related searches for specific hardware, it ends up on my ads... same with running shoes. Some ads don't seem to follow that...

Anytime there's a picture of a man on a toilet appearing on your baseball page, something seems amiss.

Who searches "constipation or diarrhea?" Usually it's one or the other, and usually you know which one!

I've seen variations on that ad before, too.

250 million infected in the U.S.? In a nation of 300 million people? How the heck does that work?

Olympic fever? Pretty sure Bob Costas is spreading it.

I'm getting a targeted ad that says something along the lines of 'say these magic words to make HIM fall madly in love with you!' What the hell was I searching for to get that!?
