Penis Bandwidth (17)

1 Name: Anonymous Scientist : 2008-11-17 02:21 ID:B2OasHbf

  1. The human cell contains 75 MB of genetic information
  2. A sperm 37.5 MB.
  3. In a milliliter, we have 100 million sperms.

On average, one ejaculation releases 2.25 ml in 5 seconds.

Using basic math we can compute the bandwidth of the human male penis as:
(37.5MB x 100M x 2.25)/5 = (37,500,000 bytes/sperm x 100,000,000 sperm/ml x 2.25 ml) / 5 seconds = 1,687,500,000,000,000 bytes/sec = 1,687.5 TerraBytes/sec

So how long until we can exploit the genetic hard drive that is the male penis?

Human DNA has about three billion base pairs. For each base pair there are four choices, ergo require two bits to represent. So that's 750 megabytes, not 75.

As an aside, the average western male has a lot less than 100 billion sperm per cubic centimetre nowadays.

hooray for soy isoflavones!

but there is one big problem with this:
the bit's are not ordered. so you have just scrambled data..
atleast when you cum/push out your information directly from your penis.

Nah, DNA is pretty well ordered.

well the dna. but you don't know the order of every sperm that "cum"s out of your penis.

Wouldn't most of it be redundant anyway?
Since probably most sperm from the same source is geneticly similar.

yes true.. that's another factor i became aware of after i wrote >>9

I wondered if that's what you meant. But it doesn't matter because as the receiver (sperm catcher) would be sorting through different sperms with discrete genetic packets it would arrange them according to the expected sequence. I'm not sure though why we'd be dropping such large amounts of sperm as to make the receiving end do so much work though.

The transmission medium is lossy

actually a very faulty protocol if you ask me. since it is invented by "god"/nature...
so much overhead/backupdata..

You see, it's a DDoD attack on competing penises.

Show me your certification.

Where can you be found? I will deliver my certification all over your face.
