Total RipOffs!

What are some things you consider to be total ripoffs? I just got back from CVS where I bought (because I have to have one) a watch battery. It's the size of three grains of rice and cost me $4.13 with tax. No telling what the cost-per-ounce would work out to be. Cost of materials? I'll guess well under a buck. RIPOFF! Another example -- water heaters, again because you have to have one! Now you're lucky if they last longer than ten years, but you are invited to spend even more money for one that says it's guaranteed for 12-years. Fuck this! My parents had a Rheem model that lasted for 25 years and may have lasted even longer but my parents moved! A standard water heater is just a big tea kettle -- that's it. Old technology. No breakthroughs. RIPOFF! Do you have other examples of ripoffs?
