I know I'm approaching 30, Facebook. I know that "time is ticking!" and that I call people "dicks" a lot, but I am not asking for them to impregnate me. You'd think the goldmine of information you're collecting about all of us would at least yield some relevant ads, but no, you see only "girl -- 28" and you send me ads for shoes, diet pills, and getting knocked up.  

It's especially confusing when this ad comes right after what is clearly meant to be a precursor to a lesbian orgy:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
