The first one is kitchen renovation, i cannot think of one time i have even briefly perused the subject in my internet travels. The next one is fun, manga porn books. Now, i'm not saying i haven't looked at some of the fine ladies that grace the pages of the web..but manga porn books? Seems oddly specific and once again something i have not delved into.

Where are the standard 'Ladies in your area' or 'This one pill will add 6" overnight!' and 'You won't believe how much you can earn with this simple trick' Kitchen renos and Manga porn seems odd.

Going through my search history and it is mostly to do with model kits, historical stuff, movies and space. Hot movie babes in WWII fighters in space ad i would understand.

I didn't notice until reading your post and looking for ads, that apparently the latest version of Firefox essentially blocks ads. I don't see any.

So, I went to Edge and IE, and didn't see many, but the only ones I saw were for auto insurance, flight sim stuff, over 40 dating sites, and something I couldn't really figure out - it said something about logging into my account, but didn't say anything about what kind of account.

Edit: Oh, and in IE, I didn't see many ads until I clicked on "Display all content" in a bar that said that only secure content was displayed. I looked again in IE and saw an ad for an extended stay hotel.

No single drop of rain feels it is responsible for the flood.
