That's very insightful... You know the world is filled with things we've made which are poorly designed that everyone just accepts as part of reality. I think you might like this book: 'The Design of Everyday Things', it's about just that.

EDIT: Also... those fucking public bathroom sinks that supposedly "detect your hand" but actually you have to like... move your hands just right right in front of the sensor to get a little 2 second burst of water... for fucks sake if they want to save water why not just put those pushy valves on those with a reasonable amount of time given to actually wash my hands, and then follow it up with those paper towel dispensers that give you one small piece of paper towel after 4 seconds of waving your hands under the sensor.

Fuck robotics, this is why I don't wash my hands.
