The danger that is Netflix

Happy February everyone, I hope you are keeping well during the shortest month of the year. A quick fact for you about February, during common years February starts on the same day of the week as both March and November, and during leap years it starts on the same day of the week as August. However, this blog is not about February (although events that have happened in February will be talked about), but is about the on-demand internet media streaming service that is Netflix. For those of you who use Netflix, you will understand binge watching. As the picture above would suggest, I’ve just finished binge watching The Office (U.S), and it truly was a great show. I am a fan of TV programmes in the form of a documentary/mockumentary, which is probably why I really enjoyed The Office.

One thing I like about Netflix is that it will suggest other things to watch. At the moment, I have chosen a programme which is in no way related to what I have been watching, and am now working my way through Fresh Meat. At first I wasn’t sure about it, but it turned out to be pretty good. So based on the fact that I am a student, and based on what I’ve written so far, it may become apparent as to why the title of this blog includes the words danger and Netflix in the same sentence. Well, the simple fact of the matter is, I really should be getting on which the plethora of assignments I have to do rather than spending my time watching things on Netflix. It’s possible a good idea to take a break from watching things and head to the library to do some work.

As with the previous blogs that I have written recently, I will be including another fact at the end of this which you may or may not find interesting. The fact for this blog is to do with housing in the United States, and that there are more houses with no one living in them, than there are homeless people. I find that fairly surprising, and didn’t think there would be that many vacant houses. According to the statistics, 3.5 million people were homeless in the United States, compared to 18.6 million vacant homes. This means there is enough for every homeless person to have at least 6 houses! Quite a strange concept to think about.

Anyway, that’s it for this blog; I hope you are all working hard and not watching too many things on Netflix! Until next time everyone!
