I'm led to believe that these ads are controlled by advanced algorithms and analytical programs that monitor where I go online and what kinds of things I'm likely to buy. So far, I haven't seen much proof.

Although, it probably wouldn't hurt us pasty male Star Trek and Terminator fans to tart ourselves up a little now and again.
