foreign language and currency

I have been getting the advertisements on the right side of the screen in German and in money values in euros.

It is interesting. I have studied German. I used euros when I was there. I do not know why I am getting this on my American screen.

No xenophobia here, just wondering.

“Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. NEVER apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you are right and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the Truth is still the Truth.”

I get mainly weight loss and liposuction ads. Trying not to take it personally! I'd rather see ads in German!

Rhu - mother,grandmother,daughter,sister,friend-foster,adoptive,and biological;not necessarily in that order. Some of it's magic, some of it's tragic, but I had a good life all the way (Jimmy Buffet)

The algorithms of the ads can be mysterious and puzzling.....

I'm not sure why you are getting that particular one.
