36M for 7 years is still a helluva deal

That's $14k per day. I would certainly spend a considerable amount of time in jail for $14k per day, but not 7 years. At that point you're just missing out on too many life experiences that you can never get back. No amount of money can buy your 30s back.

Right, it scales down really well. Who wouldn’t spend 24 hours in jail for $14,000?

Every 8 days is a year of good salary. 40 years of salary for 1 year.
