I just thought it'd be funny to have a thread of comments on the rest of the world...

You mean outside of the people who read Altermeta? Their biggest problem is perhaps that they don't read AM, secondly I would say... I dunno war?

They are indeed the worst, if they would only vote for the comic that would be a huge boon. Secretly I'm hoping this comment enticed them to create an account so they can tell me how much they do vote

Sand and wasps.  Those are my two big gripes about the rest of the world.  Then maybe mosquitoes.

The rest of the world (or at least the rest of the internet) apparently thinks I'm fat. I keep getting ads for weight loss products. I'm as thin as a toothpick.
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

That's not so bad, I keep getting spam emails for senior's dating sites.  By my count I'm not quite 50+ yet.

One of my biggest criticisms is that most of the world likes garbage pop music instead of glorious progressive rock/metal.
Risha and Jay Chan? Yeah, I ship'em.

Do what I did, build a swimming pool... all three go into there and die, leaving me to clean the filters...

Its cookie driven and usually triggered with a purchase.

I ordered some weight plates for my home gym and next thing I know the date sites are ones for Bodybuilder women (massive and frightening) wanting my...  :O =( :O =( :O =( hide!

And I helped someone order a cane- simple walking assisted living cane... The date sites responded and actually have one with disability and amputee clients. You can profile to meet only singles missing the limbs of your choice - bizarre!

After no activity for a few days they revert to Christian-Mingle. Also does this on sundays!

Huh. For whatever reason, I get ads for dating sites specializing in Chinese and Russian Women, and Middle-Aged White Men. I have NO idea where that came from.

For the past few months, I have gotten ads for free credit score, loans for the desperate, random dating sites, and tons of stuff targeted at old people. And I'm nowhere near the three decade mark!

I'm still getting luxury watch spam in my inbox for some reason. Along with a couple about car loans, AT&T, and... dog food? I have never owned a dog in my life...
