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.

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.
