|09:43 am - Why LJ Is Better Than Facebook Part 491|
LJ never gives me ads featuring animated dancing underwear.
Some would argue the reverse for that same reason.
Yes, but I would argue it is probably easy enough to find dancing underwear on one's own that Facebook does not need to present me with this public service.

But it does give me 'shave Lindsey Lohan' ads!
I have enough dancing underwear in my life, thank you.
Are we talking boxers or tighty whiteys?
Tell me there's no music along with this ad, because that would be criminal.
And admire my restraint for not telling a "Thong Song" joke.
Facebook still constantly gives me ads about wedding registries and planning, despite the fact that I told it I'm already married. Anticipating my divorce, perhaps?
In that light, then, I sure hope Facebook doesn't provide Avril Lavigne links to anybody who lists their relationship as "It's Complicated".

I would like to think that there's a chest-shaving trainee cop in Atlanta who's getting all the Facebook ads intended for me.

I once saw a talk by Rod Serling saying that he believed the future of television would be dancing bears selling toilet paper.
...and he was right.
I remember the Serling quote slightly differently:
How can you have a television program which is adult, probing and concise when every fifteen minutes, the proceedings are interrupted by cartoon rabbits singing about toilet paper?
But perhaps, as with folk music, the details changed slightly with telling after telling after telling.
