It is now believed, that after having lived in one compound with 3 wives and never leaving the house for 5 years, Bin Laden called the U.S. Navy Seals himself.

I would spam the entire internets.  And, not hypothetically either.

Let's see now.  10 desktops.  Each running 10 virtual linux installs.  Each running curl multi.  That oughta smoke the old dsl line.

To exploit the gaming community further how about setting up WoW LAN parties in your garage? Combine with alchold, popcorn and the girls from above to increase revenue.

Alternatively you could look into turning it into a grid to combine the power, then run some processor intensive stuff - neural network maybe? Would imagine you'd need a ridiculously large internet pipe to use them for online stuff.
