Hard drives don't come standard in most new kitchens, so it's understandable.

our family has a 1 TB external hard drive.
My mom's not the most computer literate, and we wanted an external drive.
My brother said "see, if you get this one, you'll NEVER run out of room!"
now we have 1 TB of space :)

I'm on my third! I guess you could call me a data pack rat.

You haven't heard of a recycle bin or the delete button have you?
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

But I might want to watch that Blu-ray of Ghostbusters again sometime!

Yeah. A 1 TB hard drive can *only* hold about 50 to 100 feature-length movies.

I call it at about 70. Regardless, I only download movies I like and a 1TB drive is now only about $70. So it costs a dollar to store a movie. That's relatively cheap all things considered.

Why can't Helen Keller drive?

Because she's a woman!

Some fridges do have hard drives, so kitchens would have hard drives.

Only 70 films at blu-ray quality. At DVD quality it would store many hundreds of movies.

If you have even a relatively modern television (HD) watching standard 700MB rips will be unbearable. Download speed is becoming less of an issue. I can download a BD rip in 5 hours. You may say that is a long time, but consider how long a service like Netflix takes, a whole day or more to get a new movie.

You watch on a television? I suppose that is justified. But how much time would you save downloading standard, and then simply putting it on "High Quality". Not the same, but still decent,

I have a terabyte internal drive - I've filled more than 600 GB in like 3 weeks. Gonna get another one. But $199 for 1.5 is overpriced. I can get 2 TB of WD Caviar Blacks for that price. No dice grandma.

And nobody should EVER, EVER buy a TB drive that's not a WD Caviar Black/Green.

I connect my laptop to a 60 inch flat screen via HDMI. The native resolution of the TV is 1920x1080 (1080p), so it's nice to have video that size as well (Blu-ray rips).

Some people currently have 1Mbit internets. That's ~128 KiB/s. Downloading a BD rip would take more than a day if I let it fully saturate my connection. More than two full days, probably and I wouldn't be able to download anything else or even browse the internet enjoyably.
But I suppose if you have FiOS or something similar, it makes a bit more sense.

I have slow-ish connection (e.g. Ireland doesn't have Fiber-Optic yet >.>) so I only download 480p.
