The term "pigeonholing" is used to mean that a committee will ignore a pending bill by placing it aside, as if in a cubbyhole. The term comes from the small compartments used for domesticated pigeons when they are nesting.

Another modern synonym is to "bottle up" a bill in committee.

What are the learning points of the Pigeonhole principle?

The main idea is the most important one! If you have fewer pigeon holes than pigeons and you put every pigeon in a pigeon hole, then there must result at least one pigeon hole with more than one pigeon. Expand the idea perhaps using a finite example. 21 pigeons and 10 holes. Try and see how at least one hole must have more than 2 pigeons. Then think about generalizing it. The real power comes from seeing this all in action. A commonly used example is: Among any N positive integers, there exists 2 whose difference is divisible by N-1.
