OK, not galaxy collision simulation - how about a scanner?
If you're not adept, it's easy to mistakenly scan at twice
the resolution, eating gobs of RAM.

If 128M is indeed the recommendation, it's not just for
the OS, it's a recommended amount - and nothing more.
It may be there just to sell memory.

If we want to talk about something truly controversial,
let's hash out that "rinse, lather, repeat" recursion
on the shampoo bottles.
