People’re always going on about the death of originality (and how things are getting worse), but the species keeps innovating (and things keep getting better). But, by definition, the job you took means that you’re inherently conservative and haven’t the disdain and discomfort necessary to innovate; I’m sure your company will deliver a radically cool new pour spout for detergent or a six blade razor very soon, though.

dude, those ads are targetted for things google thinks you are interested in. My ads are almost aways for drills, drill bits, and bolts, on account of I have a business which uses copious amounts of such things. Google knows this about me.
If you are depressed, google knows it. If you searched for something related to dpression, google knows it. If you use a Chrome browser, google probably knows that you ate a bunch of ice cream for breakfast, and feel kind of gloomy now. Since you write for notgraphs, it probably associates you with Dayn Perry, and assumes you have depression.
Brings us full circle to the principle that capitalism knows everything.

I’m getting an ad for frozen lemonade and a pick-up manufacturer that lost in capitalism, but managed a cronyism comeback.
