Here's a famous video from 2008:



And here's that same person in 2014.

I admire her for learning from her mistake.

Unfortunately, this second video did not get nearly as much attention as the first one.

There are studies that show that humans will go out of their way to punish someone, even if doing so results in a worse outcome for them personally. It's completely irrational, but it's a real phenomenon. Here's a concrete example. I want everyone to make a living wage, and one would assume that all people in the working class and middle class would prefer to make more money. Nope. Many "conservatives" say, "I don't want those losers to make almost as much as me." Seriously.

Money being spent on organizations cracking down on fraud of services that cost taxpayers more money than the fraud itself.
