### I'll one-up you on that: They say that transmitting one megabyte of
data over the internet equals a pound of coal (or something - exact numbers
are for bores). There is a miner or trucker or some other poor schlub
killed for every couple gigawatts that are used to push these bytes between
us. So, Spike, you just callously contributed, through your internet and
electricity demand, to the death on an innocent blue-collar worker! And he
has children, who are now crying inconsolably!!

Are you feeling guilty yet?  :)
