I wonder, with people downloading web pages and storing their contents on their harddrives and then rehosting the contents through easy to use services like rapidshare and facebook, now almost anybody can release viral media which can then be infinitely mirrored.

I'll bet that the most common bit pattern is the universally used "single pixel of white" spacer image that is in almost every web page. In total number the number of copies on each machine would probably exceed everything else.

But what about larger images? or other files?

Google could probably tell us a comparative number of downloads for their logo vs the 1 white pixel spacer image.

maybe the comparison wouldn't be too lopsided if we took it in mb transferred rather than number of files transferred.
