Scale of legal penalties and fines for different crimes

The whole BP oil spill (with few legal ramifications so far, although apparently there is a cap on the damages which BP would be required to pay) and the recurrent stories of copyright violations (with many outrageous fines to poor saps who got caught downloading movies and music) got me thinking: is anyone aware of a nice infographic of different fines issued / punitive damages awarded for different crimes? I am basically curious how it would look like for different countries, and if it could be used as a rough "how much we value what" scale. [more inside]

Can you help me find a screensaver that shows a lot of data at once?

Are there any screensavers that display lots of data- like the Matrix floating code screens- but actually mean something in the real world? I'd prefer OS X, but any suggestions are great.

How detailed is your mental imagery / mental visualization?

I am curious about how detailed, or photographic/realistic the imagery in one's mind's eye is, and what in general would be considered "standard" for most people. Note I am not talking about "creative visualization" but I suppose it could be related. Specifically I am referring to simply the process of visualizing an object, face or scene in your mind's eye.

Looking for a smooth function from noisy observations

Statsfilter: I have a bunch of noisy measurements. Each has an (x,y) coordinate and a "score" for that location. Most of the scores are trustworthy, but with the occasonal outlier. I want to come up with a function f(x,y) that estimates what the score at (x, y) would be (whether or not I have an observation at exactly that location). I'd like the function to be smooth and resilient to noise. Can someone point me in the right direction? [more inside]
