Do you recognize me?

I just exported all my account data from Facebook. One category I didn’t know existed: Ad topics. Apparently these are the topics that Facebook uses to decide what ads to show me. Unfortunately I don’t appear to be able to edit this list. Evidently it’s based on my “likes” and on topics my Facebook Friends post on my wall (#Gluten-free diet would not be one of my hot buttons.)

So, apparently, this is what Facebook thinks I am interested in:
