i have crippling severe depression and i want to pass in my sleep
The search for intelligent life continues....
@The unZipper, I mean technically it does get heavier, it stores electrons as packets of information in specific slots of memory in the HDD, and since electrons have mass, as the computer accumulates more information, it does grow heavier, albeit by an extremely minuscule amount, not able to be sensed by humans (or Saiyans for that matter). Yes, I am extremely fun at parties.
@The unZipper, SSD, my bad
@Prince super Vegeta , I was going to reply the same! The question was actually not that stupid!
@Prince super Vegeta , wouldn't the electrons used to store data already be on the laptop though or do they come from another source? And I only go to party's where the gravity is 300x stronger so I train harder to beat kakarot
@The unZipper, no, the electrons for the most part are supplied through the power supply. There are some free electrons available from the metal, but for the most part come from the power supply. Or at least that's what they told us in class. And joke's on you, I sleep in 500x gravity!
@Prince super Vegeta , *the more you know star* dammit I'll never reach primal omega super Sayian 5 at this stage!
@The unZipper, that's so gaaaayrrreat!
@The unZipper, technically it does get heavier... but so minutely that it isn't even measurable... it's a stupid question to ask, but still.
Fun fact, it's estimated that all of the information on the Internet weighs about the equivalent of 3 average strawberries.
@Ser Waffle Knight, then I shall find these 3 sandwiches and embrace the full might of the internet
@The unZipper, what are you talking about? That person with the forklift comment totally took the opportunity to mess with this dudes head knowing they were BSing him. Pretty clever to me.
@Prince super Vegeta, mass =/= weight though
@Rias Gremory, but mass has weight, energy does not
@frodo from 349, I think he expected to get heavier by a noticeable amount since he said it weighed 2.3 lbs, not a specific mass amount. plus "what if it's running Windows?" Sounds pretty stupid to me lol
@Rias Gremory, my bad, I thought this was a different argument later in the comment section. But like I said mass has weight intrinsically, so yeah, it still gains weight
You must scrub your motherboard with soap and hot water every day to prevent "cookies" crumbs from affecting it.
@mogonatural, and you need to clean the outlets of your house with plenty of water to prevent viruses from getting into your computer
@mogonatural, I almost died from laughter!
Actually, they're not 100% wrong in asking that question. The Internet is a massive collection of digital data, which is transmitted by electrons, which have mass. So technically, the Internet does weigh something. And theoretically the more files your computer has, the more it weighs. Now, the entire Internet has been calculated to only weigh about 0.2 millionths of an ounce, but that's beside the point. If you want a more in-depth explanation, Vsauce has a really cool video on it.
@Lord Tator, i was just thinking about this. Your RAM will get heavier, but the hard drive will never change weight (as it does not actually hold the electrons).
@Lord Tator, thats still dosent mean the laptop would weigh more due to how the data is stored. If its using a hdd then where data is not stored is not different from when data. Also hdd's dont actually erase data they just forget where it is when you delete it and then will write over it when something else is stored in that spot meaning your hdd can be technically full while also being empty
@devalation, ya cus magnets n shjt
@IdeasAreHard, hence why I said, hard drive never changes weight. But the RAM does introduce new energy to store data. Thus the RAM's mass and weight increases.
@IdeasAreHard, how do they work?
@IdeasAreHard, yeah, I get that. Plus, the weight of even the entire Internet would not be detectable to anyone, so it obviously wouldn't make a noticeable difference. I just thought it was a good opportunity to drop a knowledge bomb on y'all.
@Lord Tator, yea i was just saying that the weight would not necicarialy increase at all, noticable or not
@devalation, how does what work, hdds in general or how they dont errase the data
@Lord Tator, didn't he say the Internet weighed about 50 grams though?
@devalation, what if it's a SSD
@Prince super Vegeta , that was a calculation of the weight of the energy it takes to serve the Internet. The one I referenced is the weight of the energy contained in the actual information. Both are technically correct, just different aspects of it.
@Lord Tator, energy doesn't have mass though? I was only speaking of the total collective Weight of all bits of information of the internet (total mass of all e- allocated for Internet data)
@IdeasAreHard, magnets. ICP wants to know
@Prince super Vegeta , energy contributes to mass. m = E/c^2
@devalation, the equation is unfortunately only one way currently, as humans have not yet found a way of converting energy into mass, therefore e=mc^2 can only apply
@Prince super Vegeta , you cannot convert between energy and mass. That is alchemy. However an equation can be written in any direction and still be correct. Read Einstein's paper "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy-Content?" He concludes that the mass of a body is a measure of its energy-content.
@devalation, it is correct, but as I said, there is no humanely means of performing such a feat. That being said, *inhales deeply*
Alchemy is the science of understanding, deconstructing, and reconstructing matter. However, it is not an all-powerful art. It is impossible to create something out of nothing. If one wishes to obtain something, something of equal value must be given. This is the law of equivalent exchange; the basis of all alchemy. In accordance to this law, there is a taboo among alchemists. Human transmutation is strictly forbidden. For what could equal the value of a human soul?
@Prince super Vegeta , I like it. More!
@Prince super Vegeta , actually there are transformations of energy to mass a the time. The nuclear bomb works off mass being converted to energy even
@devalation, you can convert between energy to mass and it happens all the time
@IdeasAreHard, hmm, I haven't really heard of that, but then again I'm no nuclear physicist
@Prince super Vegeta , search mass defect
When I was a supervisor at best buy I actually had a lady ask me if her iPod would get heavier if she added music to it, I really that she was the only person in existence who would ask that question but I guess I was wrong
And if it gets a virus, you need to take it to the hospital.
Definitely not your everyday stupid...
@Old Crusty Fap Sock, this is advanced stupid.
This is actually quite interesting because technically downloads DO make a device heavier, though it is only an incredibly small amount.
I thought it said flies
Did anyone else read the description? I'm slightly worried about the uploader here.
Did anyone else read the description?
This happened 2 years ago - noice.
It will, but the weight is so small that you wouldn't even notice a change even if you downloaded the entire internet
