The data is all well and good but the compile time of humans is horrible!!
 
Who makes these calculations?  Is my tax money being used to fund these calculations? : )
 
I guess you'd call that a 4Gasm.
 
"Hey baby, how about I introduce your expansion slot to my dongle?"
 
Yeah, but it takes 9 months to copy all the files!
 
Though the part about the egg was right, the part about the sperm is a little inaccurate. The sperm that are ejaculated have already matured before intercourse even began.

- No, it isn't.

- Nobody seems to have calculated a thing. They just made it up:

A. The DNA information per sperm cell is around 800 MBytes
(rather than 37.5 MB)

3.1·10^9 - 3.2·10^9 bp/haploid human cell x 2 bits/bp x 1 Byte/8 bits = 7.7·10^8 - 8.0·10^8 Bytes

B. As for the "normal" ejaculation, taking into account that most information is repeated in big chunks over and over again, the total amount of information doesn't go much further than 1.6 GBytes
(instead of 1,587 GB)

3.1·10^9 bp/ male haploid human genome + 3.2·10^9 bp/ female haploid human genome = 6.3·10^9 bp/male diploid human genome

6.3·10^9 bp/male diploid human genome x 2 bits/bp x 1 Byte/8 bits = 1.6·10^9 Bytes

C. The total information in a normal ejaculation including redundant information is 240 - 390 PBytes = 240,000 - 390,000 TBytes
(rather than 1,587 GB)

[(3.1·10^9 + 3.2·10^9) / 2] bp/mean haploid human cell] x [3·10^8 - 5·10^8 haploid human cells/normal human ejaculation] = 9.5·10^17 - 1.5·10^18 bp/normal human ejaculation

9.5·10^17 - 1.5·10^18 bp/normal human ejaculation x 2 bits/bp x 1 Byte/8 bits = 2.4·10^17 - 3.9·10^17 Bytes
