What are three famous examples of eugenics?

I can't think of 3 specific examples, however most countries in and around the 19-20th centuries had some sort of eugenics-style program. To be clear, eugenics is the practice of institutionalized mating of people for the purposes of "improving the race". This can be done by encouraging certain types of people to have children (as an example, trying to create more scientists by giving scientists who have kids a thousand dollars) or by legally or physically preventing someone from having children. Patients in mental asylums all over the world were routinely sterlized, as were people with physical defects, alcoholics, criminals and others. Even the US engaged in such practices up until the turn of the 20th century. However, the most famous example of large scale eugenics was the NAZI eugenics program where not only were criminals, minorities, the insane, the physically or mentally challenged, alcoholics, and others sterlized, but the S.S was in the process of creating a breeding farm where approved "Aryan" women would be expected to have intercourse with approved "Aryan" men (usually high ranking members of the S.S, but also others as well), give birth and repeat it all over again.

Does a washing machine clean clothes better than washing by hand?

yes. a hundred times better. Actually not necessarily. Washing by hand works extremely well if done properly. In fact, a company named Dyson in the UK actually designed a washing machine which better imitates the hand washing action to get the clothes cleaner. People tend to assume that just because something is automatic it works better, but this is not always true. Washing by hand does a much better job of flexing the fabric. Of course, it's a lot more work too.

What did women do in the 17th century for entertainment?

They used to sew, knit & wash clothes by hand. They also used to brew their own whiskey called "GOTA". Needless to say the whiskey took a hold on everyone & that is why there was not much sewing, knitting or clothes washing done at any stage. Everyone was falling around from the effects of the whiskey & an odd fight broke out as well. Back then this behaviour was considered entertainment but nowadays one would be locked up for it.
