I got thinking the other day, and that’s always a recipe for trouble.
In this case, I got thinking about those adwords that make so much money. Lawyers and mortgage companies I understand, but some of that other stuff was new to me. I found myself asking, “Hey, yeah, what is peritoneal mesothelioma? And, why would lawyers care about it?” Turns out mesothelioma is a kind of cancer. And peritoneal mesothelioma is, basically, cancer in the chest or chest cavity. Now, based on that, I’m figuring that the lawyers who sue the cigarette companies for giving people cancer are advertising pretty heavily. But, then, I started looking at it more closely and saw that this particular flavor of cancer seems to be caused by asbestos. So, really, it’s the lawyers that are sueing the asbestos companies that are advertisting so much. And, based on the rates they pay for advertising, they’re either stupid or make boatloads of money. Or, both, I suppose.
