Amazon's Epic Fail

Like everyone else, every once in a while I get these "Amazon Recommends" emails from  

I usually enjoy them - they keep me posted on new DVD releases, what's new in the world of political science books, and offer me deals on literature.  

Today something went horribly wrong.

When I opened my recommendations "just for me" this is what I saw:

I do not sleep out doors.  I do not camp.  I do not know why this was recommended "just for me."  But it did make me laugh - targeted marketing gone horribly wrong.

But if you camp, check out Amazon...I hear they're having some great deals.

Same here. But what irks me more is when they give me deals on things I've already bought... from them!
