Targeted advertising is getting so out of control as of late. With technology growing at leaps and bounds, you could talk about something as specific as “pointy elf shoes,” your phone will hear you, and Facebook will send up an Amazon advert for genuine elf shoes from Norway while you’re scrolling the next day.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes the ads feel so targeted to me personally, I find it rather creepy. You think of something, and you’re considering shopping around for it, and then conveniently there it is on your phone. How do they do that? While I know they say they don’t share any identifiable personal information, how can you trust them? When Zuckerberg has to give statements to congress? Are they concealing more deceptive practices? What else aren’t they telling us? What are they covering up about these algorithms?
Reddit has gotten just as bad lately. An ad came up at the top of this subreddit, and before I knew what I was doing, I had already clicked the little blue megaphone. I normally wouldn’t do something like that. Who does? What kind of unhinged monster, clicks on the “promoted post” ads at the top of the subs? I can understand doing it by mistake, but ON PURPOSE? And this ad especially…
I clicked on it. I read through it. It was so compelling I was afraid I might lose track of it–I imagine that’s probably a thing that happens pretty common–so did a “select all” and copied it so I could remember to look into it later.

1. This statement has not been evaluated for validity by a qualified independent third-party. Individual experiences related to involvment in any of our programs may vary and a percentage of some individuals reported experiences in direct opposition to this statement. You should assure yourself that this is probably rare and that the percentage of negative experiences might be rather low. This is most certainly not the case, but by continuing to read this ad, you submit legally binding conformation that you agree to hold harmless CumulaCeutic LLC and all related entities. Also you agree that you believe otherwise, and stuff.
2. This person is not actually a doctor and his name is likely a pseudonym being used to conceal a dark past.
3. This technology **DOES, IN FACT, ACTUALLY EXIST** but you probably should refrain from following that instruction because the likelihood that your boss is also among those in the target audience selected by our psychic software is actually quite high.
4. Pay structures range from unpaid internships to as high as a daily rationed handful of mysterious nondescript pills, they will be consumed in their entirety upon daily distribution, signed off by a supervisor and an additional witness.
6. More Lies.
7. Father of Lies. (is our CEO.)
8. Most have technically since been reanimated.
9. You won’t.
10. Restricted to Research Campuses in the assention levels of various alternate realities and dimensions and null and void at any location on this plane of existence.
11. The process is actually, very, very difficult and dangerous you will very likely die.
12. The powers of evil supersede the confidentiality clause in certain instances. We will be informing the Lord God and his Son Jesus Christ, along with your mother, of your intent to join the rank and file of Legion. This will likely break your mother’s heart and cause her to uncontrollably weep for eternity. We do hope that these tears are not of blood, but this has happened in certain instances.
13. By submitting application, you submit that should any Rites of the Invocation of Merihem be performed incorrectly, you agree that you will in fact die and release CumulaCeutic LLC, its parent company Demonic Entity Affiliates, INC and all related subsidiaries of any and all liability for you death in perpetuity. This includes instances where the summoner has performed the ritual while not in either the proper traditional nudity or traditional red summoning cloak and also instances wherin Merihem arbitrarily decides to evicerate the skin from your face and consume your soul through your mouth. Instances of this mostly occur when the individuals performing the ritual are wearing a summoning cloak of the color blue–which he hates–just as a heads up.
Has anyone else ever seen anything like this? Did this ad target you as well? I thought it was oddly timely because I was just thinking about how much I really did need to start seeing what else was out there. I mean, it does say that if I’m seeing it, I’ve already passed some kind of pre-screen and will be placed to do something at their facility…what have I got to lose?
Now…where to find an infant?
