Hard Drive weight increasing?

Quote:
I've noticed that as I copy data/install programs on my Laptop, the weight of the Laptop increases. I have a bad back and am medically limited on the amount of weight I can carry so I need to be very carefull not to inflict injury upon myself.

I have also noticed my XBox feels heavier as well (the more games I save or purchase from arcade). I generally don't travel with my XBox so that is not an issue for me, but note the I am having the same results.

My ask, what is the weight/file ratio? So for example, how many GB's = 6oz? I dread the day I need a dolly to commute to work with my Laptop.

I'm not sure what's funnier....the original question (obviously a joke) or the people who took him serious.

Serious question from my brother after building him a computer: "So...if I turn it off...do I lose everything?"

This is the kind of thing that makes me want to find a cave in the middle of nowhere and move into it.

legit question if you've only ever worked with RAM and ran programs off punchcards.
