Okay, I understand that's HUGE, but what exactly would unzipping something of that size do to a computer?

Unfortunately, it's basically a lot of zipped files zipped over and over again into zips. So, it's pretty difficult to actually harm your computer...

It is made to fuck up your antivirus if you try to scan it.

I am confident that, within the next decade, we will create microchips which can house enough data to make this prank obsolete.

I'm not really knowledgeable with computers, nut I get that that is a large amount. Can someone tell me exactly what would happen if you opened it? Would your computer just be really slow, crash, or totally lose it's shit and catch fire?

I NEED TO KNOW

Think of computer memory like a stomach. It holds information (food) but can only hold so much. When this limit is met some information must be purged (shit) or in extreme cases vomitted. Its a slow enough process that your brain can tell you when you are full and prevent further food from entering the system before the rest is shat out. Now imagine eating a single pea when you're kinda hungry, but when it hits your stomach it instantly becomes the collective amount of oranges produced in Florida harvested in the past decade. Thats what happens to your computer.

I have started manually unzipping this file, I have no idea how far I will get.
Thus far I have discovered that 42.zip contains 16 zips called lib. Each lib.zip contains 16 book.zip files. In each book there are 16 chapters and in each chapter there are 16 doc.zip.
It took almost 25 mins for me to unzip the chapters. I will begin the next stage immediately.

It is layers of files. First zip contains 16 zips, each of them contains 16 zips, and so on for 5 layers. And at the end each zip contains file of 4,3g

I like how it seems to be consisting of a lot of smaller zip files.   
So, if anyone were to unzip this it would silently fill up the whole temp-folder of windows until it doesn't have any free space anymore.   
Now the funny thing is many unexperienced pc users only have one partition.   
If the pc user isn't experienced with this kind of stuff it would probably make their computer unusable.   
LOL
