    You know that pink in images makes it weigh more than normal? So if a normal image is about 0.02lbs/GB, porn is about 2lbs/GB.

    So, does that make Japanese hard drives lighter on average than Western ones?

    (Sorry, couldn't resist!)

    do you carry the HDD in your left hand, to balance the strength out in your right?

    Should I defrag my drive? I mean, I really don't want to unbalance my drive! If I move all the files to one portion of the drive, won't all the weight shifting around to one side cause it to become unbalanced? :ohmy

    Loving this reply on the board:


    "I don't think this is just a technology problem. The other day, I was reading one of those MS press books (One of the Thick ones) and towards the end of the book (after reading it for about three hours) I wanted to get up for a glass of water and use the toilet eventually.
    But, here's when a strange thing happened. As i was about to get up (I usually read in bed) my head was so heavy that I couldn't get up. I roughly estimate the weight increase ~564.32 grams.
    Well, I attributed this phenomena to the amount of information that got stored in my brain during that time (Notice the similarity there ? )
    I eventually fell asleep and when I woke up a few hours later to take the MS exam guess what?!? My head was light again, and I consequently failed the Exam as I couldn't remember anything a read on that book."

    I'm guessing you mean it's a hoax? If you did mean that, you should check the definition of an Internet meme. Just because quite a few of these things are hoaxes, doesn't mean they all are.

    I have no idea if this particular one is genuine or not, but it's funny either way. Given that I could believe it of many of the users I have supported in the past, it could easily be genuine. :)
