My stupid self created a gmail account before I knew how the technology read your emails and tracked your web browsing history to analyze you and then put advertisements in beside your emails that it thinks you might want.
Here were 3 ad's by a few of my emails

Paint Reborn Baby Dolls
Do you love making arts & crafts? Great new hobby! Start for $49.95.

Law Enforcement Helmets
Factory Direct Prices on all of your Police Helmet needs.

LA Police Gear
This is where you buy Tactical Gear Free Shipping - Better Service

I'm embarassed about the first one, I have no idea what google read to think I might want that. But the other 2 are creepy, I have never been to a website looking at riot gear. I do read a lot of conspiracy theory websites like infowars and above top secret, but I'm mostly on my college of pharmacy website. My fear is that google will be used to label the domestic terrorists and I might be one of them.

Share your thoughts and gmail ad's if you created an account, which I wish I wouldn't have.

I wouldn't think that the ads google picks for you will put you on a terrorist list. It may however put you on a list of people to look into, a kind of "possible deviant" list. Once they have deeply looked into you (browsing history, library records, job history, known affiliates, and so on) they may deem you as a possible terrorist. For them to look into you is not that difficult to do, it is a very scary thought but true non the less.

I'm sure I'm being watched, or have at least triggered some mechanisms to put me on a list. I'll find out the next time I fly.

Its based on words it doesn't always make sense.
All those words aren't from the same sentences its keywords.
Baby doll paint helmet etc its just words.
