Uhm...not exactly true... Ohm Law says: V = R * I -> I = V/R, and if 
R->0 then I->oo
In practice if you power a load with a little impedance (in real systems 
the load is not always only resistive) the current requested will grow 
and the source could be damaged (try to short circuit a normal battery, 
you'll see a flash and if you maintain the circuit closed you'll meld 
the battery).
This is why you should not ask 1000mA from the USB port (for example) 
unless you're sure the hardware could give it.
