Mine is actually my login for a computer program we used at Pre-Paid Legal (now Legal Shield) 13 years ago. It consisted of your last name (up to six letters) followed by your first and middle initial. It just seemed very easy to remember for me because if I used my whole last name (Colbert) it was already in use.
You aren't J. Stephen Colbert, are you?

Mine is a ham radio callsign..

Question Now what?

There is a catch 22 with this thread.
It is in the off topic forum. However since it's impossible to be off topic in this thread, it has to go in any forum but this one. For a certain amount of to be negotiated compensation, I will not report this to the authorities.

But since it is related to AS lifestyle it is off-topic of the off-topic sub- forum and therein in the correct topic forum of "off-topic".

I was wondering if we all see the same ads, or if each user's experience is different based on browsing history? I can't imagine why I would be seeing a 'Shop Bras' advert. But maybe it has a correlation to the 'dreaded rear end sag' thread I just visited? Is it just me?

I'm guessing that your alter ego was looking at Victoria's Secret Website.

The ads I see at least are based on where I have been browsing previously. I visited a tire web page a few days ago. Since then that store's ad has been at the top of the Page.

Great thread!

The 4th dimension isn't any fun anymore.

Victoria has a secret website? Now the ads are more normal...Insurance, tires, etc. Oh well.

I was going to sell my tesseract, but my dog just knocked it off the table with her tail and it broke into a million pieces. I guess I'll miss that boat...

Speaking of Boats. Try visiting a bunch of boats for sale sites and I'll bet you start to get marine supply ads.

Yes, I got that same advertisement, but I had recently visited the Secrets in Lace web site,

Stockings by Secrets in Lace - Lingerie, Nylon Stockings, Bras, Girdles, Garter Belts, Seamed Stockings, Retro Lingerie, Vintage Lingerie

(which is where Victoria will probably go when she gets a little older, and nostalgic.)

Big Google is Watching You.

But I haven't decided yet whether this correlated advertising is really such a bad thing. . .
