Sometimes Netflix Reveals Way Too Much About A Person

You can tell a lot about a person from their Netflix viewed-history.

For example, you can see if they like Hugh Grant from their history of watching "Bridget Jones' Diary," "Love Actually," and "Notting Hill." Or maybe you find they just really love feel-good animal movies because they watched "Homeward Bound," "Marley & Me" and "Beverly Hills Chihuahua."

Or maybe they just casually watched a few movies about incest, suicide cults, nymphomanics and hoarding. Is it really such a big deal if someone's Netflix account is recommending movies based on the fact that they watched "Old Yeller," and re-watched the part where the dog got shot?

Yeah... it's kind of a big deal.

It's like the description for the College Humor video above says: "You never really know a man until you've scrolled a mile in his queue."
