Challenge to laws[edit]

I want to challenge Beckhap's Law, which states that "Beauty times brain equals a constant". My girlfriend is one of the most beautiful women I've met, yet she is a very intelligent lady. --RationalSpanish Sí, soy español, ¿y qué? 18:00, 8 September 2011


I think Eponymous laws, Feminist internet laws, and Internet law should be split. Or at least it should be easier to look up a specific law, like they can be merged too (though we get an unsightly list and so I favor a split. Right now, it's a pain in the ass to find a law and don't remember the name. Anecdote: I didn't remember the name for Sturgeon's law, so I looked at Internet law and couldn't find it and then I had to search online "most content on the Internet is crap" and I finally found it after, like, page 2 of search results. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:11, 3 August 2017 (UTC)

Non-eponymous laws[edit]

Someone added the Prime Directive to the section of science fiction laws, despite the fact that it isn't eponymous (are the Three Laws of Robotics eponymous?). I'm reluctant to delete but wonder What Should Be Done. --Annanoon (talk) 13:12, 22 October 2019 (UTC)

Can I claim the law...[edit]

"Anyone that busts out the word 'realism' or 'realist' in a discussion about how to divide humans into groups richly deserves the ass kicking they are probably already receiving". - Immigrant laborer (talk) 16:40, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

Grow a pair[edit]

We need a law that states that whatever follows the phrase "grow a pair" is very, very bad advice. Would anybody like a law named after them? It looks like "Gibson" is taken. JHowardGibson (talk) 20:39, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Name it after me! I'm super cool. Or, alternatively, call it Howard's Law. Twodots Annoy me Look, ma! 20:45, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
