We all know Google is spying on us 24/7 (or however long you leave your PC on and connected each week) but do ever open a youtube window (or "tab" as we call them in 2013) to find the most delightfully unexpected video in the #1 spot of your "recommended for you" links?

Just now I was going to put on Katy Perry's Roar, ummm... for my wife, but instead I thought "maybe youtube's right".

I mean I listen to this somewhat frequently every maybe, 6-12 months and do a fair number of searches involving the artists within (except for Coolio obviously and not many for LL) but a perfectly timed, out of the blue, 4:30 Friday afternoon (pretty close to xx4:20xx) link to Hit Em High was perfect to take me through the next hour at work.

I keep getting horrible Anita videos and Pewdiepie LPs. They clearly know what I hate.

Something called "Who Owns The Moon?".

Youtube is ocassionally really spot on for me. And then occasionally it fucks up really, really bad. Like, it links me to a video about an anime character I watched quite a few times, only this video is about that character torturing his friends for no reason. Jesus christ...

Wait you people watch videos that are recommended to you?

As we further barrel into the future, our privacy is more and more compromised. It'd be a real problem if it bothered me.

Youtube knows that I enjoy cute baby animals, large breasted japanese women, and speedruns of video games. Sometimes the recommendations are... interesting. o__0
