    I remember going to Blockbuster with the flu as a kid and I puked and shit my pants right before exiting the store. Can't do that on Netflix.

    Blockbuster was like the Titanic. It started turning too late. And it sunk. And was a national tragedy.

    Wait you missed a VERY crucial piece that also contributed to Blockbuster's demise. McDonald's Redbox! Redbox was invented, movie rentals for only $1 compared to Blockbuster fees. It was both Netflix and Redbox that killed BlockBuster. But from what I remember Redbox was the nail in the coffin, people renting $1 movies like crazy.
