But is it made of chemicals?
How do you think we can get through to the anti-vaxxers?
Let nature take its course. Evolution in action.
make the ads more discernible from the search results?
Which, as far as I can tell, is what they've done. This looks more obvious than the off-white box, to me. YMMV.
And +1 to your post, as I've had exactly the same experience (when GreaseMonkey has failed to remove the elements completely, that is), and I rather suspect that was the idea. "See?" says Google, showing the EU commission a CRT screen with a page of search results on it. "The ads are obvious!"
This, at least, looks better to me than the ever-so-pale-background box, which I can barely see unless I'm looking at my screen from an angle.
Not that I ever see it anyway now, thanks to GreaseMonkey.
Wednesday the geeky cartoonist behind XKCD
I thought his name was Randall.
Oh my god, it's you! Hey everyone, it's the guy whose opinion is also objectively true!
I've got a list of questions I've been saving for you, now where did I put it...
If the engines ran for 4-5 hours and they flew in a straight line
I think you missed that bit.
but one of its products has been making bogus data-driven predictions. A study of Google's much-hyped flu tracker has consistently overestimated flu cases in the US for years.
Bogus? Are you sure they weren't just... wrong?
It's a prediction.
the metadata has no names or content. Who is contacting all these people?
Call 100 of these source numbers at random, and ask "Hey, who's that?" [reply] "[reply] who?"
You'd probably get plenty of hits, and that's without any fancy-schmancy social engineering. And since you know the numbers they're calling, that would be a lot easier too. "Hey, it's the abortion clinic again, just need to confirm a couple of things with you..."

Caveat: self-identifying audiophile here
192kHz audio [...] is just a waste of space.
No true audiophile would admit to such heresy!
Wouldn't that be "grosstete"?
Implying that he could still father a child?
Yes. He'd certainly find it a lot easier than if they'd cut his knackers off. Chemical castration reduces libido but does not, as far as I can ascertain, impair actual fertility. And it's reversible.
Chemically, not surgically.
