I would stuff every picture or video of my someday children, who are going to be my greatest treasures, into my head permanently, so regardless of old age, Alzheimers, dementia; I would always have them with me... and lolcats.

After reading your question my first thought was languages, I would love to know all the different languages of the world. I'm more interested in Spanish, French and German.

Could I have a quick temporary dl of a few bytes? Can't think of a worthy answer now. Blank mind.

@sykotek: Really? But as long as you understand that your 'future' children will be your world - it's all good.

I honestly expected all 5 answers to be "kung fu".

But i agree I would be all about some languages.

@mfladd: :D

@darthemerald: I saw "The-Matrix" tag and hacked my answer, does that count as meeting your expectations?

vote-for5vote-against

@darthemerald: I immediately thought Kung Fu... before even opening the question.. and yes I would learn Kung Fu

Can the information be compressed? If so, what type of compression algorithms will be used?

vote-for8vote-against

Books. On science, computers, math engineering, etc.

I would really love to have an ability to understand and perform mathematical processes. I am truly dyslexic in math - and yes, there is such a designation.

vote-for4vote-against

Laws, court cases and precedents, and legal lingo. ;) I'd be like law school for free.

Every single dance move. I've always wanted to tap dance, break dance, and salsa...

I would download every intelligent thing said on deals.woot.
...but that would only be 1 KB of data.

Then I would store all my log-in information for every site on which I have an account.

I would fill the rest with pictures of Queen Rania, Freida Pinto and Charlize Theron.

vote-for5vote-against

really? BS on most of you. We all know you'll use it for the same thing you use the internet now... porn.

Anatomy & Physiology books. I'd be like House, only not so predictable and a bit nicer

@csunwold: It can only be compressed to an unlicensed .rar file. Everytime you try to access it you have to acknowledge that your free winrar trial has expired by touching your nose.

vote-for4vote-against

@csunwold elects to store information about compression algorithms. Sadly, it was compressed. So, even with compression, I sure hope fluency in a language amounts to more than 1GB, otherwise, we are using our actual gigabytes VERY poorly. Here is an interesting rough guess at brain capacity.

@wootfast: lol@winrar ('s failed attempt at making me feel guilty)

I'd download 500mb of drunk. And sober. So I could alternate in between the two at will. Can we do that?

Or 10 seconds of full HD Swordfish circa 2001. You know the 10 seconds I'm talking about.

There's really only three possible answers to this question:

1) Porn

2) Kung Fu

3) Other people's account numbers

I'm going back to school in the spring semester for a computer science degree, so i would download tons of info that would make school a breeeze and my future career a productive and profitable one.

I'd want an upgradeable usb connection.

Hmmmm, that's a great question. I think I'd want to have laws planted in there and never need to see (read: pay) a lawyer again for any legal doc.

vote-for2vote-against

Every law written for the state of California would fit on 1gb? Ha!

vote-for3vote-against

The Dictionary/Encyclopedia. No one can stop a man of words.

I would try to learn as many languages but also the stock exchange data so that I could trade better (I suck at it now) :S

vote-for1vote-against

@csunwold: Haha touché! Assuming we had the technology to do such a thing, we'd probzles also have the technology to compress it and access it at will, right? Oh the possibilities :}

I download the flight manuals to every major aircraft. then I'd be unstoppable.

vote-for6vote-against

I slept on it and came up with this: i just want a blank 1gb with software that can record what im seeing and what im dreaming. But i want it in HD so i'll need mini usb expansions!

vote-for4vote-against

Languages and maps. If there's room left, the dictionary and thesaurus (most of which is already in there ).

vote-for1vote-against

If the downloading came with understanding, I'd add the tax code to that. But just having the data in my brain wouldn't make it any better than having it available online if I didn't understand it as well.

vote-for3vote-against

Simple: Knowledge of how to repeat the experiment so I could download as much information as I wanted, and get other people to pay me for the same privilege :)

vote-for3vote-against

@mattschuette That is a good read. If 2.5 petabytes of information is accurate, and assuming we have a reasonably efficient method for storing memories, it makes me think we still have a long way to go in seeing the upper limit for human memory potential.

Parkor
Kendo
Metal Working (blade making)
Mandarin Chinese
Japanese

(why do I get the feeling I wish I was born in Japan)

I'd like a little of US and Japanese History, but not EVERYTHING.

I've come back because I've changed my mind a little. Actually, I'd like to add:

a custom web browser so I could instantly google anything I needed.

vote-for1vote-against

I see language was already chosen. About 40 times.

I change mine to creativity?
