Sometimes I feel like everyone in the world is leading a more exciting life than I am, and then Netflix announces that online viewing surpassed 1 billion hours in June, and I realize that we all spend the majority of our lives watching “Law & Order: SVU” marathons in bed, and I feel so much better about myself. Seriously though, one billion hours–what a daunting figure. Could we have cured cancer and stopped global warming and eradicated LMFAO in that time? Most likely, but come on, our dedication to online media has yielded impressive returns in the form of brilliant Ron Swanson quotes and heated “Game of Thrones” discussions at otherwise lighthearted social events.
Tell us: how many hours did you contribute to this milestone? Did you discover any amazing new shows or movies last month that we should be adding to our queues? After all, we’ve gotta buckle down if we want to hit 2 billion hours this month! [The Atlantic]
