On the fun side, if you are able to read a page of text in just a
second and can sustain such rate for a long time it will take you

di 6000000000/1800/60/60/8/5  = 23.14

weeks to read such a file reading for 8 hours a day 5 days a week.
This is probably the most sure way to kill your eyesight.

(average page size 1800 is from http://xml.coverpages.org/eaf-texts.html)

Regards, Sergiy
