You all probably know that my Google Adsense account got reactivated, and that I’ve been running Google ads almost exclusively for the last couple of weeks.
Well, I was flipping through the last week of strips, and this page had an ad that read, I kid you not:
Dark Matter for sale. aff Check out
the deals now!
I searched for Dark Matter on ebay, and I found lots of products that had Dark Matter in their names, and more than a few books about astrophysics, but I did NOT find actual Dark Matter for sale.
It’s probably a good thing. First they’d start selling clumps of the stuff, then there’d be Dark Matter chia-pets, and before long you’d have Dark Matter monsters in the sewer. That’d make the Paan’uri really mad, I bet.
