This reminds me of one I saw where they had unmanned cameras watching polar bears and their babies. The bears played with the box that the camera was in - and then set it back upright before they left. Awesome!

Picture sitting in an Italian family restaurant at lunchtime when a LARGE pair of SEE-THROUGH long-underware with giant pink hearts down the side of the leg (& blue thong beneath) walks by about 2" from your face. I was going to post this Friday when it happened, but my internet has been down at home and I just remembered when reading about eye bleach on another board. Ewww.

That's what I was thinking when I told my daughter about it. This was like some of those WalMart pics I've seen--only in person.

This was taken on the island i live on. These bears are extremely used to people. They are more interested in the salmon than the humans.

Dream 'boxing logging?

Hey guys, I've now had my second night of letterboxing, in my dreams.

Just wondering how to log these finds... Do I log them as "other", or is there an icon I'm missing? Do I qualify for a night boxing patch now?

Seriously though, my fiancé is getting...concerned.

I never had letterboxing dreams until recently. Several times I have awakened during the night after nightmares about trying to solve Pam Dora's clues and ciphers about the box in Sunset Hills, MO. Unfortunately, even my subconscious mind can't solve it.

Know what it costs to get rid of an interloping raccoon? $550 + $75 for each additional if she has had her babies. Yikes. At least the guy is going to fix the vent that the varmint broke to get in and raccoon proof it. Don't think I'll be getting the new bathroom 'til she's gone. The raccoon climbed down between the walls and my daughter could see the shower wall moving when she turned on the water yesterday. Guess it's a good thing we got a tax refund this year and haven't had to go grocery shopping since Glynn has been in the hospital.

What an adventure!!!
Not sure how old your daughter is...but I bet she was pretty freaked out by the moving wall!!! Was she able to take the shower? My niece would have come screaming down the hall and refused to go anywhere near that half of the house. (Based on her reaction to the bathtub faucet dripping unexpectedly...the Loch Ness Monster!!!)

I'm so sorry that you're having to go through all this though. Hugs and prayers.

I know I've seen it before, but in Google Chrome I have ads on Atlas Quest pages and Internet Explore I don't. So how do I get rid of the ads on Chrome??

Run Malwarebytes to get the malware off of your computer.

I learned the hard way, not all ad programs are "malware" according to most virus/malware software. It sucks. I had to google the program, and manually delete all associated files to the program. :-(

It pays to pay very careful attention to options and checkmarks (and even the source of the file) when installing software from the interwebs.

Premium membership? No ads, plus other features too. It comes out to about $3/month if you break it down.

Totally worth it.

If it's malware adding the ads, upgrading to premium membership will not remove them.

Deaths of really famous celebrites usually are deleted right after their deaths are announced. Deaths of other celebrities sometimes get missed, so posts like this are quite helpful. He has been removed from the birthday list.

Since it's only showing up in one browser, it's probably not coming from AQ. AQ does not discriminate between IE and Chrome when it comes to displaying ads. =) Depends on which pages the ads are showing up as well. Right now, the only ads from AQ are one on the box details page and some on the tutorial pages. If you see ads anywhere else, it's probably not coming from AQ.

So they'll have to figure out what software/virus/toolbar/whatever is causing it and attack that directly.

Thank you for posting this! I was concerned about those ones after some indication that maybe ads were not supposed to be there.
