BIG BROTHER IS NOT ONLY WATCHING, HE REMEMBERS WHAT HE SEES

I was reading The Daily Kos a few moments ago, and I noticed an Amazon.com ad.  Was Amazon advertising left-leaning political books?  A natural idea on The Daily Kos.  Nope.  Amazon was advertising super lightweight collapsible wheelchairs?  Why did an ad for super lightweight collapsible wheelchairs pop up on my Daily Kos?  Because yesterday I went to Amazon.com to look for a super lightweight collapsible wheelchair for Susie to use when we travel.

Now that is downright creepy.  To paraphrase Emily Dickinson, I might as well tell my secret password the live long day to an admiring bog.

Talk about the Global Village is so yesterday.  This is the Global Borneo Long Hut, where everyone knows who is making love to whom and what everyone had for dinner last night.

It might be even creepier that - being in my early twenties - I find this perfectly normal and unsurprising.
