Was this meant to be ironic?

when playing cards online.
Too little to meter, to coin a phrase.
You are comparing a single screen image change vs a moving image, which
is not only huge, but is constant for 1 1/2 hours. Orders of magnitude
more bandwidth required to stream the latest reality show than to
display a card game where you certainly don't make a change more than
once a second.
Just to brag: I have recently completed my music library that I have
been working on for 40 years. I have a recording of every Grateful Dead
concert for which a tape exists. This is over 2400 concerts, and the
Dead didn't just play for an hour or two! Not only that, but these are
not mp3s or any 'lossy' format, some of them are 24 bit, so these are
huge multi gig files. Close to 10 terabytes. And they are all mine!
And all were downloaded as bit torrent files over the course of a half
dozen years. And with all of that, I never came close to the limits
that kids watching bad tv on their iphones are hitting.
Deal 'em, Dad!
