Intimidation, browbeating? I mean, if there is anything to the Milgram experiment (and I believe there is), then many people will deliver what they believe are dangerous and painful electrical stimulation to somebody so long as someone in a position of authority behaves as if it is standard procedure. If those rates are truly 99.5% in 20,000, then maybe it's just because everyone is doing a great job - or maybe jurors are vulnerable to being herded along by (certainly knowledgable and experienced counsel) some very intimidating and powerful authorities. I doubt it is simply a matter of "overcharging is extremely rare, as judged by regular Americans".

There is code that allows you to perform 32-bit emulation on an 8-bit processor, but does it really work? Now we know.

Well, why would you run 32-bit code on an 8-bit processor? Maybe so you don't have to write code on an 8-bit processor - you know those things can't add past 256.. so if you have some code and just want to use it without wrapping your head around everything that tests it's limits you can safely do this now.

Honestly, I don't even know why I'm explaining this on slashdot of all the places.

Wouldn't the receiver/transmitters of neutrino data with artificially generated neutrinos directed at them make neutrino interactions less rare at said locations? IOW, in nature it is rare for them to interact, but nature is out the window if we are creating artificial sources of them..
