    How does that even work as an ad? Is it a service you pay for? I thought they were like a lottery.

    Tourism at a coastal town in another state. Nice place, but I'll wait until things get more normal again.

    I’m 99% certain that they take your money and never send you any card, green or otherwise. ;)

    Maybe the idea is that they fill out and submit all the complicated government paperwork on your behalf so you don't have to do all that, or something (I'm not sure how complicated the process actually is).

    Christmas lights, fandom T-shirts, and Class III-A body armor. An odd combo, to be sure.

    wouldn't count on that!

    Now they want to sell me “Japanese vintage movie posters” to “decorate my home”. Since I’m no fan of any particular Japanese movie, vintage of otherwise, they seem quite off the mark once more.

    Ads for that virtual "intimacy game" again, featuring a physical device and a computer-generated woman. I sent feedback that it was inappropriate, but it kept on appearing. :rolleyes:

    No, it's random. Just like all the political stuff that kept coming up for a while.

    Today I see an ad for a "build your own bulldozer" kit.
