How to impress without doing any work

Sparked by a conversation with someone who has Netflix but claims the DVD player doesn’t work:

Someone who has a Netflix queue but doesn’t watch DVDs

After hearing that this had gone on for months, I became suspicious that it was just a ruse to somehow impress friends and others: is there a Facebook app or blog plugin that tells people what Netflix sent you, or to share your queue? Hmmm.

The super-duper punchline? The complaint that Netflix had erroneously sent a Tyler Perry movie. Had movies been returned, unwatched, during this period? Giggles all around, I tell you.
