We all know McCain’s Law, don’t we?
Everyone knows that one. It’s probably the second best known law of the Internet, close behind Godwin’s Law.
I think I have just discovered a corollary. I need a bit of help with the exact wording, though.
Just as a side note: you know those behavioral experiments that they perform with monkeys in the lab? The ones where the monkeys learn that if they press a red button they get grapes, but if they press a blue button they get an electric shock? Then they switch buttons to see how quickly the monkey learns? Or the one where if the monkey presses the yellow button he shocks himself, but if he presses the green button he shocks the monkey next door?
How long will it take the Cabin Boy to learn that the only buttons that don’t give him a shock, make him dance? And some do both?
