On my recent voyage to Tralfamadore my traveling companion Kilgore Trout got drunk and grabbed the controls sending us careening through the Chronosynclastic Infundibulum.
Since then, every time I've logged onto the internet and seen the conditions of things these days, I zip off back in time to when this country stood for something good and useful.
This has made it difficult to relate to, more or less to comment on, the despicable state of affairs which is this country today. As soon as I formed a thought, but before I could get it down on paper - or electrons as it is - whoosh, I was back somewhere conversing with the likes of Washington, Jefferson, Sam Clemens and even Tesla.
Having returned to the Chronosynclastic Infundibulum and passing backwards through it I seem to be stuck back in time only to return to find the OUTRAGEOUS TEXT ENHANCED LINK BULLSHIT all over The Lair and my other blogs.
I HATE THAT SHIT! FUCKING POP-UP BOXES ANYTIME YOU ACCIDENTALLY MOUSE OVER THEM!
I AM NOT SPONSORING FREE COMPUTERS! I AM NOT PLUGGING GOVERNMENT GRANTS! WHO GIVES A SHIT IF SOME SACRAMENTO MOM MAKES $77 PER HOUR!
THEY ARE ALL SCAMS! NOTHING IS FREE - STRINGS ARE ATTACHED!
I DO NOT WANT THIS SHIT ON MY BLOG! WHO AUTHORIZED THEM TO DO THIS?
I CAN'T TAKE IT!
KILGORE, WHERE ARE YOU - WE NEED ANOTHER RETURN TRIP - I'LL BRING THE BOOZE!
MONTANA, I'M ON MY WAY!
NINES - HELP!
After realizing these "Text Enhancement" links were only occurring on my desktop computer and not on my other computers nor on other peoples computers I ran a full scan with MalwareBytes and after 1 hour and fourteen minutes of scanning it found nothing. I was going to go online and see if I could find anything out about it so I hovered over one of the links to make sure I had the title right. I then noticed a little question mark Icon so I clicked on it. It gave me the choice of opting out of the service. So after scrolling through about 15,243 Captcha phrases until I found one I could read enough to get it right, I am finally opted out and the links have gone away.
What I want to know is why was I apparently opted in automatically and forced to go through the crap of opting out?
