mental ad blocker
So anyway I started blasting
There a term or name for the scenario where you watch something or think of something, and you suddenly notice things relating to it online everywhere. In reality, these things you notice have always been there, you just didn’t have that specific thing on your mind and/or weren’t aware of it, so you didn’t notice the references
Anyway wanna see if they can find the name of this scenario? My description may be a bit off but it’s that general idea
I know it’s happened to me a couple times with pop culture references that I didn’t really pick upon, didn’t blip on my radar, until I belatedly watched whatever the reference was from, and then I recognized it whenever I saw it
Soon we’ll be dreaming ads like on futurama
Jokes on you,I dont have anything…inside…my…head…
*I look like an idiot now*
This is old af.
Yea, I don’t like it. Not one bit.
Well, have you thought that you want to buy the stuff because of ads thinking it is you wanting to buy the item and once you make the idea yours, you then realize the ads?
You guys obviously have low level mental shields. The devs added it in one of the recent updates. I never get any ads related to what I want, ever.
I’m about to make this house less full.
Made me think of that Futurama episode where companys advertise in people’s dreams.
They’ve chipped our brains confirmed
So anyway, I started advertising
Banana shaped cat bed
The silent killers
One of the voices snitched
I’ve noticed things happening that I’ve only thought of but now that I’ve noticed that it’s happening there’s started to be memes about it everywhere
They know more about what I want than me
I hate it when that happens. Children keep popping up on my ads.
The increasing frequency of this happening genuinely disturbs me. Like, I get the idea certain apps may use your phone’s microphone and an algorithm picks up keywords or whatever, but how the fuck can it pick up something I’ve literally just thought of?
I’ve tried to rationalize it away…maybe I’ve looked for it before and forget about it; maybe it’s a popular search and by typing in one word from a sentence it just brings up something a bunch of other people have looked for; maybe I’m just reacting to subliminal advertising etc. but nothing I can think of stands up to real scrutiny.
It’s happening more and more
