Just so you know, Google is tracking you. When you come to this site, there are goofy ads listed in the sidebars. Google once provided those ads based on the content of the site. Now, they're going to start tracking you by saving a cookie to your computer when you hit this site.

By doing this on every site using Google ads, they'll build up an idea of your interests and start modifying the ads to fit your interests.

I don't really know how I feel about this. I do make a couple hundred dollars a year on Google ads. But the main reason for the ads is to see what weird-ass ones pop up based on my asinine posts. If the ads start reflecting readers' interests rather than the content of the blog, then what's the point?

So, I'll ask my faithful readers, both of you, what should I do? Should I just kill the ads?
