Why's this like that? - 1

as seen in ~/.bashrc file

export HISTCONTROL=ignoredups

HISTCONTROL is used so that repeat commands do not clog up your .bash_history
HISTFILESIZE is how large your .bash_history will become, someday
HISTSIZE is how many entries you want. Set it huge and don't ever lose anything.

If you ever overrun these settings, I'd be amazed.
