A guy here has coined a law and I'm just checking how far it's got.

Hasn't made it this far yet.

Can you give us the gist of it (thereby
propagating it via the list!).

OK so no one's heard of it.
Seelye's law states:

When a wire, cord, rope, string or any other flexible entity is picked up to be used a knot will be found in it, to the consternation of the user.

Hmm, A good law, but not always accurate.  Proper storage principles
to the contrary, I like it :)

Probably not a law, but in my experience tells me:
When a wire, cord, rope, string or any other flexible entity is
picked up to be used a knot will be found in it, to the
consternation of the user.  If no knot is found, then it will be slightly to
short, but you will refuse to discard it because you have the "pack-rat"
gene.

Best regard,
Giles
Someday I plan to participate is a legitimate PIC topic.

Seelye's law 1st generalization:

If the flexible thing is longer than 10 feet then the number of knots in
it is N+K, where N is the number of knots you think you can see when you
look at it and K is an arbitrary, large, positive integer.

Hi,

as Selye was Hungarian (even after he emigrated to the USA) he is the 1st
scientific investigator of the stress on the biological living forms. In
one of his books he wrote a 2-line rhyme which may be interpreted as his
law. In original:

"Harcolj mindig, ha a cél nemes,
de ne állj ellen, ha nem érdemes."

Roughly translated:

Struggle always if the goal is noble, but do not resist if it is not
worth.

I assumed Seelye is a malformed spelling of Selye. If it would be an
error, then please ignore.

Regards,
Imre
