so if one car does less damage than others, will there eventually be a car that does no damage at all ?

Do this math problem.

2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2 ÷ 2

No matter how many times you divide a number, it will never reach zero. Even if we produce a car which can run with no byproducts, there is still the matter of making the car.

0.0009765625... Looks like Zero to me. Even if it's a minuscule fraction above absolute zero

In case youre wondering the zip file thing is probably done like this:   
There is a thing called hexadecimal file compression. If you had a string of numbers that make up, say a picture, it would look something like this:    
1888442736abbb993dddddddddddd83666199999999477777346253   
Now instead of using individual numbers for every bit, you group them instead, and put the number of the same number before it, so if you had six 3s in a row, you'd put 63, instead of 333333.   
That number above would be shortened to:   
113824121713161a3b2913bd18133611891457131416121513   
   
The zip file thats 4.2 petabytes unzipped, probably has the exact same hexadecimal number repeated trillions and trillions of times, but could be compressed down to basically nothing.

so what happens to your computer when it is decompressed? will it just say the file is to big? or does it kill your computer? can it be fixed?

No no no,
The file contains 16 zipped files, which again contains 16 zipped files, which again contains 16 zipped files, which again contains 16 zipped, which again contains 16 zipped files, which contain 1 file, with the size of 4.3GB.

So, if you extract all files, you will most likely run out of space :-)

16 x 4294967295 = You need to login to view this link (68GB)
16 x 68719476720 = 1. You need to login to view this link (1TB)

The candle nail thing reminds me of the invention from that air nomad guy in the last airbender, where there would be tiny firecrackers in the candle and after an hour goes by it would crack 1-12 times varying on the time.

put multiple '42.zip' files in using the same process = 4.5Pb x Whatever the **** you want!

4.5 Pb in 42 kb?

Yeah, its the same data repeated many many times, and the compressor takes advantage of this and basically says "This data times 1000000". Instead of writing it out 1000000 times(which you do when decompressing it). :)


I believe the file was compressed in levels though, so it gets bigger for every time you decompress it.

Makes sense, just couldn't think of a way to normally compress so much into so little. Thx :)

Actually that last one is wrong. See there were 2 forms of photography found at almost the same time by a man in Britain and one in France. The Frenchmen allowed anyone to copy his way of photography but the Brit put a patent on his.

If you donate stuffed animals to the Florida State Troopers they'll do the same. They usually have enough donations, so 9 times out of 10 they'll have one in the trunk.

Instead of setting the candle for an alarm, just shove it up your ass to the desired number of hours, and when it burns your ass hole, you know it's time to get up.

"Anonymously with no recognition" If that's the case how does anyone know about it? I mean if he had no recognition then nobody but him should know that he did it.

he probably died, and it was revealed after his death. It's likely more of a "no recognition during his lifetime" kind of thing.

With regards to the teddy bear thing.. That happens in Canada too :) I was with the fire department for a while and we had several stuffed animals in the back of our tanker, works wonders.

And in Norway if you buy a car that do less damage to the environment you have to pay a lot more extra, while buying a car that spews out CO2 and **** is a lot cheaper and less taxing. It's like they punish you for thinking environmental

Its dependant on how it is made, there are a few "environmental" cars that cause more co2 an other bad stuff while being made, then an old co2 spewing car spews in its lifetime.
