google is a little creepy sometimes

I just enabled AdSense on this page. As far as I know, I have zero readers, but I figure, "What the hell?"

I don't know how they pick what ads to serve if they can't get a good sense of what your site is all about, but I just looked to see what's there and there are two ads for Audi. How in the hell would Google know that I've been looking at Audi cars a lot recently? I haven't written anything about Audi on my page, I haven't linked anything, I haven't received any emails about their cars in my gmail account...

I think I've determined that I can't afford an Audi, but it's creepy nontheless.
