Annoying ads? Make yourself an adblocker!
I use this when watching YouTube videos. Some ads can be skipped, that's nice. The other kind can be volume muted, but you still have to watch the ad in silence.
To eliminate polluting my vision while sitting through the silent ads, I cut a small slit in a sheet of poster board. I hold my "ad blocker" up to block the ad visually while watching the ad countdown timer through the slot, and unmute the volume when my video starts. No more ads!
