People who buy things also buy other things...

Had to share this. Whilst checking my rental list on Amazon, I got the following recommendation:

"Customers who rented The Third Man [1949] also enjoyed...
Pirates Of The Caribbean : Dead Man's Chest (2 Disc Special Edition) [2006]"

Bollocks they did! At least make them vaguely convincing Amazon, c'mon!

I once bought my wife a brassiere on Amazon, and you should see the recommendations I get now!

I liked the undead monkey....

But I've often wondered what my weird purchasing habits do to their suggestion generators,and whether, for example, future purchasers of the Grizzly Man soundtrack will be offered the Arutiunian trumpet concerto.
