I say that because people think they need $100-$300 sneakers - just like a pro; and titanium golf clubs (Expensive substitute for aluminum unless you're making fighter-jets) and any number of other "pro" level (in price, at least) items because they need that edge - so they can win in the Olympics, I suppose.
The main advantage of the larger address sizes is to allow larger amounts of directly accessible data (max. amount data/file -> max no. records in table -> and so on). Very large calculations with very large number. For such purposes it is useful to have 64bits, but only for a very few. IP and MAC addresses need to have ever larger sizes available, but in most aspects of your claim I agree: everyone seems to think they need to buy a system that is designed for needs they won't have - but it makes the feel good to think they need it.
Hi Greg no one is ever going to solve these sort of clues - you have to play by a set of rules and you shouldn't need specific knowledge of anything to solve it ( bridge in this case ) ( if no one solves your clue you have failed as a clue setter )

"We can't stop here - this is bat country" - Hunter S Thompson - RIP
the mathmatics part is simple,
it's introducing humans into the equations that WILL screw it up:
- to officially report or not report
- to count this as X or call it something else
- fake news, and whose side are we on.
I can understand the frustrations of epidemiologists, to get even one of the factors (i.e. fatality rate) they need accurate information.
Contrast the differences between "official" figures released by governments. Even if you say let's take USA, UK, Germany as "reliable" and ignore those we know as fake (and being fair that's not only China) ... anyhow USA, UK and Germany have better healthcare, this lowers death rates, so even using their figures alone doesn't give you an accurate fatality rate
... And that's just one variable (mortality rate)
for "the world", i.e. richer to poorer countries: healthcare ability, population mobility, interaction, density, [effectiveness of] mitigation implementations (distancing, masks, isolating...), infra...
Playing with graphs is fun or AND IS scary,
- it's not a job I would want to do in real life,
... at least not without being able to remove humans from the equation
