I have the VIP thing on Tapatalk, so no ads at all, but it doesn't apply when I'm on the computer.

I've tried to find something useful in all that click bait, but alas, nothing yet.

I have seen a couple of amusing articles, but nothing useful. What is really amazing to me is how frequently the same articles appear, given that they must have hundreds - perhaps thousands - of articles available.

Yeah, I'm starting to really resent the lists where you there's a new page for each item. Life is too short for that! Especially now that I'm retired.

This is a technique to get viewers to load more pages and so trigger more advertising hits. When I hit those, I just quit after the first page.

Forbes magazine is the worst for this on Facebook. They keep listing 10 best cars/trucks/whatever and 25 to avoid. I don't even click on the first tease.

That one in the upper left is (or originally was) pretty interesting. The guy that started those trip optimizations has (written/developed/bogarted) some algorithms using Google tools that can give you some neat results for trip ideas. [Or maybe it's just me, with the math background, that finds it interesting.]
