    I swear I just saw an ad on the forums for a $250 starbucks giftcard (one of those freeipod.com promotions/scams). Jesus, how much starbucks could a guy possibly consume?

    Oh wait, that'll be enough to buy you what, 10 coffees from starbucks. My bad

    If that's true, then at least they are using that stuff for it's best use -- cleaning the south end of their body. ;)

    However, adzoox is at least spouting off in the right direction on these ads...
    If somebody else comes up with ads that don't contain a bunch of this crap, people may run away from Google ADsense.

    Edit: Unless you have a better idea on how to cover the revenue from Google ads... but it's still a lot less ads than some of the sites that have went insane with ads like MacOSRumors.

    You could always buy some of the other stuff Starbucks sells. They have some really cool looking coffee pots and expresso machines. Or maybe a ton of mugs and thermoses (no clue what the plural of thermos is...anyone??)

    This is B.S.

    Yeah I clicked on that ad, and it's not a scam, but it's nearly impossible to collect on the $200 Starbucks card. First they make you sign up for 4 subscriptions to things like credit card offers, and then you have email this offer to 5 friends, and they must complete the 4 subscriptions before you can get your $200 Starbucks card.

    Thanks but no thanks....It's BS if you ask me.

    Thermosae. Just kidding. I'm like 96.9% sure it's thermoses.

    Apple's spellchecker accepts thermoses, and doesn't accept thermosae. Shouldn't it be thermosæ anyway? :p
