You know those "google sponsored links" on a lot of pages? They're triggered by the content of the page to give you "ads to measure". Meaning you're more likely to be interested in them since they tie in to the content of whatever you're reading. Well, I was reading an article in an online newspaper about the tsunami in Asia and the following google ads appeared on the page:

    Luxury Helicopter Tours in Sri Lanka
    Indonesian Gourmet Coffee
    Crowne Plaza Hotel in Jakarta
    International Flowers


I assume the last one was triggered by all the mentions of deaths. There were so many, the ad even appeared twice on the page. On the other hand, that was probably the only ad of the four that has even a remote chance of being relevant.
