Let Me Think For Myself Facebook!

I'm sure everyone's noticed the newest addition to Facebook. Down the right hand column it has a section called recommended pages, based on the things that your friends like.
More often than not, it keeps throwing things at me that I couldn't care less about, but it's interesting to see which two random things Facebook think I will like, purely based on the social and economic patterns of people I have in my friend feed. 
Sometimes it gives me two things I have no interest in, and sometimes it might give me one good and one bad.

Don't ask which one's which. As well as trying to assign me a personality based on the things my friends like it also offers me up some wonderful suggestions based on things I've already said I liked, such as this gem...

Thanks Facebook, that's helpful.
