The new permanent freakshow on the right side of your web browser

Has anyone else noticed this ultra-cheap looking ad sidebar that persists on the right side of a large portion of the internet now? Notice how the images don't necessarily have anything to do with what is being advertised. It seems that they just focus group tested high in distracting users from what they are reading. Can I have my old internet back please?

Scary and shitty ads. It's like the focus-groups were early era Homosapiens, where a man "baring teeth" was rated "very eyecatching."
