I remember when I first had dial-up. I’d visit this site called Free Arcade to play games all the time. What I remember most about the site isn’t the games or interface; rather, it is the ads.
I can’t believe it! You mean to tell me that out of all the people that visited the site today, I’m the one millionth? Wow, what are the odds? What’s that? All I have to do is shoot three ducks and I win two free iPod Nanos? You’ve got to be kidding me!
Unless you were born yesterday, we all know now that this was just a load of nonsense. At best it was an amusing advertisement. At worst, it was a scumbag sitting in his basement waiting for some sap to give up his social security number. But the Internet has changed a lot since then.
For one thing, there really are sites where you can earn free stuff like games, gift cards and clothing. No gimmick, no scam and most importantly, no ducks.
