Netflix has destroyed me

I joined Netflix, and in a weird way, it gave me an existential crisis.

Like all sites even remotely related to products, Netflix lets you rate things, and, like all sites, doing so will help it recomend random stuff that has no relation to the things you've rated highly.

The side-affect of this is that you can see a total count of how many movies you've rated. I've rated somewhere close to 900 movies.

Nine hundred.

Assuming I've been watching movies since I was ten, thats more than 57 movies a year. Even if you knock off a couple hundred of those ratings as TV shows, that's still around 42 movies per year. That just seems wrong to me, and I don't know why.

I blame the aliens.
