That's one way of looking at it

For the geeks amongst us, next time someone brings up the "information" argument...

<hypnosis>1. The human cell contains 75 MB of genetic information
<hypnosis>2. A sperm 37.5 MB.
<hypnosis>3. In a milliliter, we have 100 million sperms.
<hypnosis>On average, one ejaculation releases 2.25 ml in 5 seconds.
<hypnosis>Using basic math we can compute the bandwidth of the human male penis as:
<hypnosis>(37.5MB x 100M x 2.25)/5 = (37,500,000 bytes/sperm x 100,000,000 sperm/ml x 2.25 ml) / 5 seconds = 1,687,500,000,000,000 bytes/sec = 1,687.5 TerraBytes/sec
<jck_true>DoS attack!!!
<hypnosis>a bukkake would probably be a DDoS then
<hypnosis>11 men would give 17 petabytes/sec

  1. I was this close to making a very very scientifically nerdy comment. Nice counting ...


  2. DO it. Do IT, Dooooooo iitttttttt....

    You know you want to :)

  3. MacG,

    I got all red faced ... :-)

  4. Now if we could only find a way of making it usb compatible.

  5. That's the good thing about hanging out with people like Mac, you have more information than you really need.

    So, Mac, what does this mean to you, personally?

  6. More information than was ever needed, for any -- er -- conceivable purpose.

    I need a drink. Followed by another drink. staggers offstage
