I don't know if you guys use Gmail or not, but if you do, you know about the ads that appear in the right-hand column on your screen when you view your emails. They're somehow catered toward my interests by analyzing the content of each individual email that I read, noticing key words, and using those terms as filters to bring up relevant advertisements. If I'm reading an email about my credit history, it lists credit reporting businesses. If I'm reading my iTunes receipt, it lists ads for other music download services.
That said, for some reason, when I read my weekly Car Talk Puzzler email, the following list of ads appear.
Prevent runner's diarrhea
Learn what causes runner's diarrhea
and how to prevent it.

Treatments For Constipation.

Now, I get the part about car leases, but runner's diarrhea? constipation?! bloating gas?!? What's going on here guys?
Thought you might find this interesting... or devastating!
