The stock market is a magical place full of made-up values that the Gentry take seriously and do their best to force us to take it seriously.

Netflix lost 700,000 subscribers from the Russian blockade, and then 200,000 subscribers in its first quarter leaving it with around 220 million accounts. It expects to lose another 2 million accounts leaving it around 218 million accounts. The Gentry reacted to this news with a ritual that claimed this was a loss of about 50 billion dollars in value.

If we take the largest number of lost subscribers from the numbers I took that puts each customer at being worth 16,666 dollars. Presuming each of these customers bought the most expensive monthly package from Netflix they would have to subscribe for 69 years to hand over that much money to Netflix as individuals.
