    Not actually something I want to put into practice, just more of a question on simplicity and efficiency. (This lends back to the elementary school hypothetical of "Would you rather make $100,000 this month, or $.01 on day one, and your pay doubles every day of the month?")

    If I were to open a Wordpad document and type the letter "A" and then loop a macro script that this this:

    CTRL + A
    CTRL + C
    CTRL + V
    CRTL + S

    How long do you think it would take to completely break the computer down, or does it just not work like that in the real world of computing?

    Most computers these days, would perform repeated memory dumps. So zero breakage.
