It feels so wrong, yet so right. You hear the sound of your parent’s footsteps outside your door, but you can’t stop; rather, the realization that you might get caught makes it all the more enthralling. Your eyes open wide in anticipation of what’s coming next. Never before have you seen something so big and all-consuming… as Marshall’s ducky tie. This has been your fourth time watching the ducky tie episode of How I Met Your Mother instead of studying, and at this point you have come to the realization that you are, indeed, an addict. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of.

While parents and siblings are doomed to disappoint, one can always rely on Barney for a laugh, Marshall for love, and Lily for being the WOAT (really, she is the worst). Binging How I Met Your Mother on Netflix has become as quintessential to the high school experience as passive-aggressive texts between friends, or civ ed advisors telling their naïve frosh that they drink “only every once in awhile.” Now, Netflix has displayed that it truly is devoid of a soul and has removed the once-untouchable, How I Met Your Mother from its library, just as it did to classics such as 30 Rock, Friday Night Lights, One Tree Hill, South Park, and of course, Cutthroat Kitchen. It is said that protests around the country are mounting, with one civil rights leader supposedly saying, “It’s a matter of principle. If Netflix really takes away our How I Met Your Mother, then truly nothing is sacred.”  

However, Scarsdale is a resilient community. We survived the great Silly Bandz ban of ‘08, the infamous Schedulegate of ‘16, and even the fake Juul crusade of ‘17. We are fighters, and with the help of pirating websites we can maintain our life, liberty, and prosperity through this horrible tragedy. Now, all that is left to do is pray that The Office is not taken away next, because then, truly, anarchy would be upon us.
