Some pseudo science  for a Friday afternoon : 

 

The weight of the Internet

 

Quote

The Internet runs on electrons and that’s how data is stored. These electrons weigh very less[sic]. To make an ordinary email of 50 kb, it takes about 8 billion electrons. This sounds like a big number but it weighs just “two ten-thousandths of a quadrillionth of an ounce.”

 

Using Einstein’s formula e=mc², Professor John Kubiatowicz, a computer scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, calculated that filling a 4GB Kindle would increase by 0.000000000000000001 gram.

 

 

There are lots of theories on the internet that calculate the weight to be as small as a fat strawberry- and some claim it to be as light as a teeny grain of salt.

 

Yes, the links and references are not new, but hey, are we talking one or three strawberrys here ?

I am not a Royalist but I wish that this was real.

You know when someone has no love, no family, no friends, and no worthwhile hobbies in their life when they spend Sunday shitposting.

Is this one of your rhetorical questions again?

 

Sending you good vibes. Small steps remember. :)

A rhetorical question requires a question mark.

 

For example: Are you so dumb you don't know rhetorical questions have question marks?

 

Thus endeth the lesson ( @LeCheese ).

Do NOT capitalize the first word after a colon!

Nothing to redeam. Your posting style is very erratic and angry. One often presumes you are just talking to yourself (see above).

As per AP Style Book, this is only used when it is a suggestion. For example: Why don't you stop posting. 

 

However, in all style books a question word/question format is required for all rhetorical questions. Please, however, feel free to continue trying to redeem yourself.
