Default Google Demographics Hilarity

I read technology news on Ars Technica and today, this little article caught my eye:

Now, I don't have any major problem with Google trying to narrow down my demographics using a cookie. In fact it led to a moment of comedy. It thought I was twice the age I actually am. People have been telling me for years I'm a grumpy old man and whilst I don't think 45-54 is old, it is one instance of computers getting it so wrong and so right at the same time.
