I feel like I should answer to that properly, because nobody did so far

We obviously have a computer.. see.. this is the Internet, we write to each other in a forum where you definitely need a proper PC for to enjoy its main theme (PC-Games..). Unless you like typing on an iPad / iPhone and just browse here for general gaming news (Although I still find this site pretty PC-centric, thankfully)

2, electricity. Well, firstly.. when I am using my PC (usual wake-time) it's on and uses power no matter what I do with it. So I assume you mean the cost of electricity for downloading over night when the PC is off. You can get for about 200 to 400 $ a NAS (storage device for multiple HDD's networked) that can connect to the network and uses about 20W , most even have a torrent client...

Which leads to 3
You do not spend any time finding movies if you are a pirate, the movies find you.
Downloading can be a hassle
But burning? Remember the NAS? TV's can have network access by now, including a media center function. alternatively you can stream to TV via HDMI which is a bit of an hassle but possible.. you could also just copy it on an USB stick or drive and physically carry it to the PC. So.. yeah, burning.. not really.

As for 4...
Truly if you are stressed and worried, public torrents is not what you'd be using... and if you use the alternatives there is literally -0- reason to be worried about ever getting caught. Because you can't be. At least I never heard of anyone being caught for downloading stuff from usenet or a filehost link.
