    My YouTube algorithms are not satisfying me with their choices. But aren't those algorithms just reflecting the nature of my past choices back at me? I feel repressed. Am I the victim or the perpetrator?

    Or is your subconscious creating a reality you really want and need?

    No. I don't think so. I do NOT need to see the highlights of nine French Ligue 1 fixtures every weekend, consciously or otherwise. In revenge for Brexit, I think Britons like me are being tracked down all around the world and interfered with via YouTube.

    Nine French lingerie videos every weekend sounds good to me.

    Perhaps Musk is writing the algorithms for Youtube now.

    Our newest vehicle’s navigation system can predict, without any input by us, where we want to go when we start it up.😲

    😁 Good one, but no. We both still have most of our cognitive functions. I wonder, as we go to the particular place pretty much every Saturday, at roughly the same time that it, the navigation system, assumes that’s where we are going?🤔

    My wife has recently bought a Mercedes and she told me her car does the same. I didn't believe her (I pretended to of course) but maybe she has a point.

    It may be like when you google something and all of a sudden you get a bunch of articles/advertising on similar products. I have a flip phone so you can likely guess that I am not a techie. Hell I have trouble getting into my IPad to get to RHP.😲

    A few months back a poster (think it was Dive) posted something about looking to buy a shed. I did a quick Google search and for the next few weeks was constantly bombarded with adverts for sheds. (Wherever I went).

    Somebody out there really had me pegged as a chap contemplating the purchase of a shed. - Am currently being stalked by winter coats.
