Strange Coincidence or...?

Kind of a bizarre question, but why the hell does Youtube always recommend eerily similar "recommendations" to my real life events? I'm growing suspicious as to what that site knows about me.

1. My uncle and I were having a conversation. He was talking about getting a 360 or a PS3 for some Ace Combat games. Later that day, I check youtube, and one of the "related videos" on a COD video was an Ace Combat gameplay video.

Coincidence? I think not. Especially since no other Ace Combat vids were suggested ever again.

2. Just today, I was comparing BO2's Orgins and Wolfenstein: The New Order in my head after seeing my friends playing it. BAM! 3 videos in the "watch it again" section on Youtube were BO2 Origins gameplay videos.

Coincidence? I think not. (it didn't recommend any Origins videos before I hopped on CoD today)

(if anything odd happens like this, I'll add it to the thread)

While that whole text blockade was sarcastic in some sense, those two things actually happened, and tons more I can't remember. I'm looking for answers here.

I have to respond with the well-known, over-used, and always hated philosophical answer of ...

Yes and no.

Yes, your life from now on is going to be an action movie.

No, you will not realize that you are living an action-movie life.

You see, Vector, you've been programmed only to rely upon your skills when necessary for the day's mission. That's why, when you play COD, sometimes you have good games and sometimes you don't. When you are having a bad match it is because you are not in your "secret action hero" frame of consciousness.

The good news, however, is that when your wife/GF complains that you didn't do something to her satisfaction, you can reply, "It wasn't my fault. The government felt that was unimportant to their objectives."

Not bad Izjar11 abit of that fermi paradox mixed in with prism  like nuttin2say mentioned ... I'm pondering these questions as I look out the window - probability of someone watching me and what's happening in that opposite window... Is that ...Am I in the same room??

Very good, slydog.

Is that an outward corner ... or an inward corner?
