Sexy figures

According to this, the total size of the internet as of the year 2003 was 532,897 terabytes. For some perspective, assuming that the size of an average mp3 file with a bitrate of 128kb/s, which is the usual quality of downloaded mp3s (you know you have some, you dirty swine), is 5 megabytes, the size of the internet is approximately equal to
532,897,000,000 / 5 = 106,579,400,000 mp3 files, baby.
Now, assuming that each mp3 file plays for an average of 4 minutes, that means that if the internet of 2003 consisted entirely of mp3 files (fo' shame, ye pirates, a plague o' all your houses!), the folks at RIAA would have died of heart attacks 2 years ago. Ok, maybe they wouldn't have, but given those assumptions, if you had loaded the entire internet into one humongous playlist, you'd have had to listen to it for
106,579,400,000 X 4 = 426,317,600,000 minutes
426,317,600,000 minutes / 60 = 7,105,293,333.33 hours
7,105,293,333.33 hours / 24 = 296,053,888.89 days
296,053,888.89 days / 365 = 811,106.54 years.
Doesn't that just make the geek in you want to go fuck your imaginary girlfriend?

Well, most internet downloads are p o-rn so I guess its the Christian fundamentalists that should be getting the heartattack
Eh, well, mp3 files just seemed a more convenient yardstick. I mean, I would suppose one could listen to music forever, but watching pr0n for any protracted amount of time would be exhausting.
holy shit, that's fucking sexy. 811,106.54 years of music. mmm.
