Most of these PDF's are crap.
They are sold online under the guise of major discoveries and written by idiots.
I have seen all of these before and there is nothing to get excited about at all.

People should be careful downloading PDF files as they are one of the default file-types used in S.E.T. in order to create an embedded reverse TCP (meterpreter) connection back to the target once opened. It gives direct access to your computer, so simple to do and also undetectable to any Anti-Virus program.
I just got a U2U sent to me a few hours ago by a member who just registered here, he tells me a conspiracy about the MODS then gives me a link to a PDF file. I do not know if anyone else here got one, if not; then I have been singled out and someone who just attempted to send me a link to a honey-file.
To that person: How does it feel like to fail?
Everyone has their own security measures, personally I use several computers and laptops to avoid such infection. One of my computers has no Network Card, or WiFi card and I store all my data on it safely. I also use one laptop to download from the Internet, I format the laptop on a weekly basis, it has nothing else on it apart from files that I am downloading. That is just a sneak peak at a piece of my security measures, please be careful when downloading random PDF files as it is the most common form of being completely hacked to death in the easiest way.
That website you mentioned allowing to host 10GB is useless. I have over 300GB of ebooks/documents, maybe more as I have a lot scattered around on external drives that I haven't got around to indexing on my offline system.
