Clark's Third Law
- When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
- The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.
- Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic
...work expands to fill the time available
(And Floore's Law: expenditures rise at an exponential rate; salary at a geometrical one. IE: Your purchases grow faster than your salary.)
Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.
