Reality is Frequently Inaccurate

the ramblings of a babbling idiot

27 November 1987
"The last word in ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant: ‘What good is it?’ If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering."
(Aldo Leopold, Round River, OxfordUniversity Press, New York, 1993, pp. 145–6.)

I am a conservationist, having just completed my BSc Botany/Zoology majors and Honours degree. The above quote is simple and brilliant.

I am also a prolific law-writer. i shall now list my laws of the Universe:

Elizabeth's 1st Law:
"The speed at which time passes is inversely proportional to the amount of enjoyment gained from activities undertaken during that period of time"

Elizabeth's 2nd Law:
"The amount of time spent on an assignment or exam revision is inversely proportional to the achieved grade".

Elizabeth's Law of the Universe, 3.a:
"The time spent procrastinating increases with the proximity of exams or major assignment due dates".

Elizabeth's Law of the Universe, 3.b:
"The frequency of internet blogging will increase exponentially with the increasing proximity of exams or major assignment due dates."

Elizabeth's 4th Law:
"When Elizabeth completes an assignment and it is marked by Jose Facelli, the grade shall be below a distinction. Every time."

Elizabeth's 5th Law:
"The activity in which you wish to partake is never equal to that in which you must."

Elizabeth's 6th Law:
"any material that is specifically learned for examination purposes shall not be useful in that exam"

Elizabeth's 7th Law:
"Whenever Elizabeth gets a lift home with her Father, she shall never go straight home".

Elizabeth's 8th Law:
"Whenever Elizabeth goes to a concert or performance of any description, she will always have a tall person sitting in front of her".

Elizabeth's 9th Law:
"The reasons we annoy our loved ones is simply because we know we can get away with it and will always be forgiven".

Elizabeth's 10th Law:
"The pain of filling out any OH&S form is equal to, or greater than, that of the injury which prompted it"

Elizabeth's 11th Law:
"When getting between 4 and 6 hours sleep, Elizabeth shall enter zombie mode. Anything outside this is considered normal. This does not apply when more than 2 nights in a row are considered."
