Google has just freaked me out!

Recommended Posts

As a very rare deviation from the usual Saturday night steak dinner we are having a Chinese takeaway.

 

This is a totally random and exceptionally rare event - there is no routine pattern or frequency.

 

We were just talking about ordering by phone when the conversation changed to something else that caused me to open Google street view to find a business totally unrelated to the previous discussion.

 

Clicked the cursor in the search box, didn't type anything, but the list of suggestions that came up was as shown in the attached pic.  I've never used Google maps to find the local Chinese (I already know where it is!)

 

How is this even possible?  We don't have "Alexa" or any other voice activated tech.  Has Google already infiltrated our minds and our homes?

 

I'm by no means a tin foil hat merchant but this apparent "coincidence" has pretty much freaked me out....

random coincidence.....

 

They happen to me all the time, though my explanation is that some of these coincidences are evidence of a portal through time your mind can occasionally tap into..   not somethin you can control but somethin you happen upon when the stars line up just so..    

 

goes back to having free will or not..   and our future already being mapped out......

Nope, we found an old menu at the back of the drawer and were discussing phoning an order through...
