Pressing Harder When Low Batteries on Remote

In our new wired world, have you ever thought about the irony that when batteries are running low in a device, like a TV remote, our solution is to push harder.  Somehow, we believe, pushing the buttons harder will get that last ounce of juice out of the batteries.  When you step back it makes no sense since the remotes, and almost all electronic devices work off microchips.  They don't care or even detect how hard you are pressing the buttons.  You could press them a bit or a lot and to the device the outcome is the same.  However, as humans, we believe the harder we push the more success we have.  While in many ways we are the smartest species we do have some dumb moments.
