Facebook scarily right...

2013-08-07 16:34:14.060169+00 by Dan Lyke 0 comments

[Facebook news feed ad for a HauteLook River Jute Wedge Sandal] I have been complaining for years now that if all of this big data mining were actually worthwhile, then various advertising networks would give me ads for things I'm actually interested in. For the most part, however, they just give me ads for things I've already bought. The trend continues, and the only thing I can figure is that somehow they managed to pull these shoes out of the photo of us in drag at the Weave Your Heart in San Francisco 2013 IAGSDC square dancing convention. Because, yeah, these look an awful lot like those shoes.

(Note to those who'd question my masculinity: These shoes are part of the "Steve Madden" line. Because, you know, football and 6" glittery gold heels go together so well.)
