Wanna buy a good second hand congenital heart defect?


I don't know if you do this, but for me when a friend, acquaintance, or someone I love is diagnosed with an illness I get on my computer and Google it to get some basic information so that I know what is going on.

Of course it's dangerous, because it is often the worst case scenario that is presented, without any of the specifics of their particular case. But at least I get a bit more of an idea.
So on hearing a pretty way out diagnosis, I Googled and was working my way through what seemed to be fairly authoritative sites when I noticed a strange thing...
You see, I've often noted that there are sponsored links to the right hand side of the screen.
I've always marvelled that whatever item I'm Googling for, eBay seems to have, but this is ridiculous!



What the?

The chance I'm simply longing to get a Ventricular Septal Defect of my very own (even at bargain prices)?

... Approximately None!!

Computers will never be able to rule the world. At the very least, if they DO, we should be Very Afraid.

Oh Good Lord - you mean we can recycle them? Perhaps we can whack ours on ebay when we are done with it (like NOW!!)
