Porn Fiend Used Computer Power for Heat

We don’t get into the sordid world of pornography too often on this website but a recent porn case is so out of the ordinary it is worth further examination.

It seems a fellow in the Midwest was charged with possession and distribution of child pornography after he was spotted online sharing electronic files, photos and videos of children in compromising situations. You get the idea.

Not surprisingly, the 40-year-old man lived in the basement of his parents’ home. In the basement, which the suspect converted into a man cave, was a large installation of computers and related electronic equipment.

He was using so much computer power that the heat generated by the technology gear was being used to heat the house during the cold Midwestern winter months!

Aside from the despicable porn charges, to which the suspect has already pleaded guilty and been found guilty, the defendant may have stumbled on to an energy-saving breakthrough with enormous potential for saving the environment.

If a bank of computers could generate enough juice to take one home off the power grid, imagine what could be accomplished if other non-traditional potential power sources were put into use for the greater good.

  • For starters, think of the energy that could be generated by talkative politicians bloviating in Congress, state capitol buildings around the nation and at city halls in every village and town. Harnessing hot air would be especially productive during election years.
  • Think of the energy that could be produced by physical fitness fanatics at gyms and health clubs across the country. Hook up generators to treadmills, stationary bikes and stair climbers and before you know it, electric bills will be in freefall. To keep the machines operating at capacity, pizza parlors could be persuaded to offer cheesy, fattening specials for patriotic reasons.
  • Set up a series of power-generating furnaces that would be fueled by old cell phones shoveled into the fire. After the millions of obsolete phones sitting in closets and drawers have been burnt up, police could ensure a continuous supply by using telephones confiscated from drivers caught sending text messages while operating a motor vehicle.
