Antiseptic Soap? What is Cuticura?

When I buy soap, I look for antibacterial or antimicrobial.  I don’t want germs and I want the soap that kills the most.  Read antibacterial soap vs regular soap.  Antibacterial soap does not kill any more germs than regular soap.

However, there is a soap called Cuticura Soap that bills itself as an antiseptic soap.  It’s been around for way more than 100 years and some people swear by it.  It supposedly prevents infection more adequately than regular soap.  It’s pretty darn cheap too so you really aren’t wasting anything.

I Found an AdWords Bug!

Background: I created a Google AdWords ad and then added 4 images.  I wasn’t getting any conversions so I paused all the individual ads instead of just the campaign.  One of the ads continued to show.  So I wrote to Google.  The fixed it and are refunding me.  I may have saved people thousands of dollars as they are going through and seeing who else the affected.

Hello Jason,
Thank you for your email. I have looked into your ‘XXXXX’ campaign and found that you paused two of your image ads on February 26, 2007 and the remaining two image ads on February 28, 2007. One of your image ads, ’728×90 XXXXX,’ was running after you paused it. Our team of engineers has identified the technical issue that caused some paused ad campaigns to receive impressions and clicks from the content network.

This issue was resolved for affected campaigns Thursday evening (PST), March 1, 2007. We’ll begin issuing credits to affected accounts in the near future, and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. Our engineers are working hard to understand the cause of the issue and prevent it from happening in the future.

If you have additional questions, please visit our Help Center at to find answers to many frequently asked questions. Or, try our Learning Center at for self-paced lessons that cover the scope of AdWords. Jason, we really appreciate your patience and understanding in this

5th Grader Show Promises Smarter Americans

Trapezoid Leave it to Fox.  Tuesday and Wednesday night they they started a new show called Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader.  In the show Jeff Foxworthy asks adults questions from 1st – 5th grade text books for large amounts of cash.

This is all great and fun.  The other night they asked what is a “Trapezoid”.  Well, this is really getting people thinking.  Today the search frequency for Trapezoid raised 356 times its normal average.

Is this pointing out that us Americans are dumber than we should be or will this show make us slightly smarter?

btw… a Trapezoid is kind of rectangle with it’s sides kicked out.
