The internet weighs nothing!

The explanation in the video is bogus. If you put an electron in a flash cell the electrical field would cause the same the same positive charge to be stored on the opposing side of the capacitor. The positive charge is the lack of an electron.

Hence, putting an electron in a flash device makes an electron leave the device. (Or else there would be no current running through the device either).

Therefore a flash device weighs the same no matter if all zeros or all ones are stored in it.

Therefore the internet weighs nothing!

Or think of it another way: If we all agreed that 0 is 1, and 1 is 0 (inverted storage), then the weight of the internet would be negative?

@paperduck Ok. Which weighs more, a blank sheet of paper or an identical piece of paper with words printed on it?

@paperduck, well that's obvious. The internet is a rainbow. A rainbow being shat by a pop tart cat.
