Why Is a Laptop's Battery Dearer Than a Lawnmower's?
What it wasn't designed for is screwing by hand, where any other design works better.

Murderer With "Aggression Genes" Gets Reduced Sentence
That depends on the purpose of the imprisonment, is it 'corrective' or 'preventive'. If it's corrective (punishment for committed deeds), then leniency is in order. If it's preventive (you are in prison so you cannot do this is again) the sentence should be longer.
I subscribe to latter point of view.

US Senate & House Create YouTube Channels
In 1999, there were 5,514 bills introduced in Congress (not counting procedural and internal Congress housekeeping bills).
Let's generously give 30 pages per bill (although many are multi-hundred pages). That would give ~165000 bill pages a year. Let's say an average congressman can read a page a minute (give them a benefit of the doubt). That would
make reading bills a full time job, year round. With no time for debates.

Automated Scripts Overrun eBay Holiday Contest
As a seller, now I have no recourse against a bad buyer. Ebay does not refund ALL fees, just the final
value fee, which is a percentage of the final price that the buyer pays. I lose the insertion fee (which
would be refunded if an item is relisted, but not for multiple item auctions) and any and all listing upgrade
fees that are substantial.
So in essense, it is GOOD for Ebay to have non paying buyers, as they get double the fees if the item has
to be relisted.
