Shoppin' Silly, the Amazon Way! #2


We all know that websites, especially sellers, use algorithms to analyze our transactions.  They then tailor “suggestions” targeted to our presumed buying practices.

But sometimes those algorithms produce silly results!
Sure, Brahms is a “star”—one of the “Three Bs” of music.  But I bet this was really suggested because Flint, the near-immortal recluse in Star Trek: The Original Series’ “Requiem for Methuselah,” was actually Johannes Brahms (and lots of other famous people) during his lifetime!

Or am I presuming too much sneakiness on Amazon’s behalf?
Has watching 2001: A Space Odyssey driven anyone to drink?

What does a pirate hat have to do with Urban Legends?

See you on Monday for more glory and madness!
