Video of the Day: How Much Does the Internet Weigh?


Considering how much time we spend on it, it’s kind of funny that we’ve never really thought about how much the Internet weighs before. If pressed, we probably would have guessed it was a trick question, and that it’s weightless.

If you include personal computers instead of just servers, it’s about three times that amount. Confused? Click through to watch Michael from Vsauce explain it.
