Was just debating the stuff I have looked up on the internet over the past year. And what these idiotic search engines that stalk and memorise the sites I go to must profile me out as.
My searches have included:
- Video footage of a guinea fowl running (they cheer me up no end without fail)
- Where is Dawid Malan the English cricketer from because with a name like that can he really be English?
- World War 1 flying aces
- Properties near my house
- Places – tourist traps, hotels, transport – where I might one day go holiday if I had a sackload of money
- The option of getting an owl as a pet – specifically a burrowing owl
- Body fat muscle ratios of women
- How to make a yorkshire pudding
- Restaurant menus in places I will never go eat at due to location/price/menu choices
- How to grow various vegetables (which I have promptly never bothered to grow)
- Random items on Amazon – rarely books – that I might one day want to own from jewellery to toasters
- The fourth state of matter – I thought there was only gas/water/solid but the Science Museum said plasma counted (I think it was plasma)
- Currency exchange rates
- What time the shops open
- Where is the bank
- Which universities were top in the world
- Cellphones that could explode on planes
- When a Brazilean musician is touring again internationally
The thing that I really resent is that these searches ARE being tracked as I’ve been getting adverts appropriate to these random searches.
Just a pity that if these people had any sense, they would realise there is no correlation between what I read on the internet and my own personal reality half the time.
