adsense randomness

Posted on February 10th, 2009 under Random Weirdness by

just happened to look at the google ads showing here … i added some adsense a few weeks ago, mainly because i’ve been stuck with adsense integration at work and wanted to play a bit. interesting ads they show based on the randomness of my posts.

for you legions of adblock-running visitors here’s the titles of the current ads:

  1. HD endoscopy
  2. see sexy singles
  3. fallout 2
  4. fallout 3 – game
  5. stock video at

it kind of reminds me of the amazon recommendations i get, based on a unique mixture of things i’m actually interested in, random articles friends send me (most along the lines of “holy shit, you’ll never guess what i found on amazon”), stuff i look up for giving away to friend/family/<insert-random-interest-group-here> and some strange interpolations amazon comes up with.

shopping = hostage rescue

Posted on August 11th, 2008 under Random Weirdness by

sometimes, talking to friends can end in short but nevertheless self-explaining images … like today, when i got around to talking shopping with a friend (who shares the predicament of having to find pure, simple black clothing and isn’t much into the classic saturday shopping expeditions) and he lightly dropped the sentence “for me shopping is more like a hostage rescue kind of situation – enter, secure the precious cargo, exfil.”

three simple steps and it’s done.


What an unbelievable amount of traffic

Posted on July 18th, 2008 under Random Weirdness by,304505

The Essentials: the webserver of the city of Dortmund couldn’t handle the massive traffic of 70.125 hits in the first week of July. Increase in traffic is caused by the Loveparade taking place in Dortmund this year, thus sparking a bit of interest in the web special they are hosting on their server.

You’ve got to savour this, every single word …

70.125 hits in one week.

that’s about 10.018 a day.

417 in an hour.

About 7 per minute.
