It's under warranty and doesn't bother me as much. Not to mention I absolutely suck at small hardware tinkering.
My absolute favorite would be a scroll wheel barely poking above a middle button into which it would be embedded, allowing for button-type middle click as well as scrolling just by moving a finger up by a fraction of an inch.

Not trying to flamebait, but this looks more like a "me, oldtimer, can't adapt" thing.
Indeed, some mice have a harder to press mid-button/scroll wheel, but there are some which are easier to press. I have a G700S and the middle click requires greater finger pressure than I'd like, however I bought it because it features both step-by step scrolling and continuous, which is the feature I was looking for. At any rate, I remapped middle click to a side button too and retrained my muscle memory.

Doesn't matter which frame of reference you use.
Say you go absurd and link intelligence with weight. There's still gonna be an average, a median and 50% of the population lower / higher than that. And given the very large values (full Earth population, around 7B souls), there will be normal distribution simply because there are so many data points.

Do not use the blue keys on this terminal.
