Nope, I just see the SU banner Ad. But after having drug my fat butt on to the scale this morning, I could use the Lap Band. On my freaking G_d I'm so fat! Needless to say, I just got back from the gym. Yikes! Why can't I have Mick Jagger's metabolism?

I know some people get some weird banner ads here at times, but on my Mac for some reason I'm always immune... thank heavens!

OK. I'm not even gonna tell you what I first thought a LapBand was . . . I sure felt a lot better, after reading the replies, Joan, when I realized that it was NOT what I thought. LOL!

I see a wide range of ads on SCS, some seemingly apropos to the site, some not so much. I see that SCS subscribes to two different ad hosts, Google and Rubicon Project. Perhaps one filters ads better than the other.

Default Lapbands are...

the lastest fad of ways to lose weigh (PLEASE DON'T FLAME ME IF IT WORKS FOR YOU).

If I understand it right, it's a surgically inserted band that goes around your stomach to make it smaller as opposed to the old surgery which actually removed part of your stomach.

I've been seeing lots of commercials on TV for it lately.

LOL a LapBand is a surgical procedure type of thing (less invasive than gastric bypass) that is done for weight loss (i've seen the commercial for them a LOT so I know what they are LOL!) basically they put the "LapBand" in at the top of your stomach and it restricts it so that you feel full? Something like that........

probably the lap band people read that horrible Martha Stewart Crafts article a while back and figured if stamping is "nascar for fat women" we need lap bands.

Now THAT was a great reply!!!!

I have foxfire, and I don't get ads.... but I'm positive I'd be thinking they were targeting me too... and hiding in my bathroom while I was on the scales!

Hey, I was out in the weeds with Jutta; first thing the term Lap BAND evoked was "Lap DANCE" . . . What can I say?

I literally did laugh out loud when I read this! Sometimes I do get to thinking that box in front of me has actual intelligence and personality. (I guess it's because of the the people contributing.) If I keep sitting here like I am today, I'm sure going to need something like that!

Oh Wow!!! How did I miss the whole Martha Stewart/Nascar for fat women fiasco??? This is the first I've heard of it. Did some googling and learned a lot. No wonder I don't like the Martha Stewart line!

I just have one piece of advice. They need a special tag for threads like this one so I switch to a stationary chair instead of a swivel chair before reading them.

I almost killed myself reading this thread. My family is looking at me like I'm nuts!

When I read the article, the part about nascar/fat women was a post by a commenter on the bottom of the page. Not something Martha had said but a reader that read the article and added a comment.

Right, my point was that the lap band people read the article and agreed.

Sorry for the confusion.

I noticed something tonight. I was looking at a thread about Copics (deciding I MUST have them!) and there were 4 Copic ads at the top of the page.

I remember now that the more I read the lapband thread, the more ads about that subject were showing up at the top of the page.

Joan, were you by any chance looking at a thread about chocolate when you saw all of the lapband ads?
