When I want to write something longer than a tweet about something other than math or sci-fi, here is where I'll write it.

A suggestion for Netflix.

Currently, Netflix has a five star system. Notably, three stars means "I liked it" and two stars means "I didn't like it". 

I would like to suggest another option in between them, which we will call two and a half stars.

Two and a half stars will mean "My ambivalence about this film causes me to explain the many dichotomies in my feelings in Proustian length and detail, and if I may be immodest, in Proustian literary merit as well."

That's what two and a half stars would mean to me.

That's what two-and-half stars means to All Right Thinking People™!

I would love to read one of your Proustian inspired reviews - sure would make a nice change from some of the things I read. Have madeleines, await with anticipation.
