My helpdesk decided to counter with "We'll run out because of the 
nanobots we'll be injected with to cure cancer and other diseases." They 
just don't understand the fact that a single /64 network is plenty to 
handle all the nanobots in the human body (supposing we're still going 
to be human). Of course, the nanobots really do need their own isolated 
subnet. They do a lot of multicast, I'm guessing.
