I never understood sentences where it includes lengths far beyond the normal human life span.

Don't you think it is silly?

In this particular case it's likely a moot point, but concepts that sound silly like "mutliple consecutive life sentences" in the American judicial system can in some cases make a difference.

Let's say a man is convicted of two crimes, say two separate 2nd degree murders. Each of these crimes would result in a life sentence. Even if he is paroled from one, or one of the charges gets thrown out on a technicality, instead of being released the "second" life sentence would then begin.
