How a 103 year old Astrophysicist confuses marketers

According to Facebook, I'm a 103 year old astrophysicist who speaks 21 languages.  I got my first job in 1929 at Sam's Blacksmith Shoppe, was hired by NASA in 1959, and Co-Founded in 2011.  I speak English, Ingles, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian, Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Afrikaans, German, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Portugese, French, Greek, Swahili, Hawaiian, Elvish, and Klingon.

Which means that the ads I see (thanks to retargeting) are pretty awesome.  For example...

Caskets and Funeral arrangements

I know I'm 103 years old, but seriously - has anyone ever bought their own casket from a Facebook ad?

"Swedes in California" t-shirts

Talk about zeroing in on your target market. Nailed it.

I do listen to a lot of Neil DeGrasse Tyson's podcasts.

Ads in many different languages

No idea what they say, but I bet they're awesome.  My favorite are the Norwegian ones.  Still waiting to see one written in Elvish or Klingon.

Big idea. If you don't like your data being used for creepy marketing purposes, just confuse them with your data.
