Oh, you mean like the agreement I have with my water/natural gas/
electric/cable/satellite/cell phone/etc/etc/etc/etc company? ;-)
The One Million Dollars figure was to illustrate the fallacy
of claiming that fines are irrelevant, as well as a joke that
you probably would have missed unless you saw the movie Austin
Powers. There's only 1 kind of fine that is irrelevant and
that is a fine that is set too low.
Presumably, anyone setting up a fine schedule would be smart
enough to understand this and set the fines accordingly. I suppose
I could have just said this, but where's the fun in that?
Understand of course that I don't support the proposal AT ALL but
I am not going to resist pointing out logical fallacies in
arguments against it - that DOES NOT mean I'm defending it!
