Named Laws

Keegan's Laws

1) Any discussion of the Nazis will inevitably degenerate into a Usenet thread

2) If it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is broke, still don't fix it or you'll break anything that was expecting it not to change.

3) Any sufficiently complex technology is indistinguishable from rent-seeking.

4) There's a free piece of cheese in every mousetrap.

Barton's Law

Any strange behaviour may be explained by a strange tax.

Lavy's Law

Sometimes it is expedient not to be too pragmatic.
