Oh Fred, you can't take kids out behind the woodshed anymore. No, the Nanny State has the Nanny Gestapo that considers "discipline" to be grounds for having your parent card revoked.
At home, before I figured out how ugly bittorrent is as a file transfer protocol, I used to willy-nilly setup torrent downloads of various linux isos and go to work. My wife would then be struggling all day trying to figure out why the "internet doesn't work right". She'd reboot the router, reset the cable modem, and get a few minutes of good internet and then it would choke up on her. She'd do that over and over. Then the next day, no problem. A few days later, nightmare day again. Took her about a month of recurrent frustration before she finally asked me if I knew what was happening. Hmm, problems on these specific days? Oh, that was all me.
Point is, even if you have ginormous bandwidth you can choke the heck out of it in a hurry doing some ugly torrenting.
