We all know Godwin’s First Law:
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one.
According to Wikipedia, Godwin introduced the above as a memetic experiment. I’m wondering if the same could be done with his Second Law:
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a rant involving Bush or his administration approaches one.
A friend and I may have come up with it, but we’d be glad to attribute it to Godwin if it would speed up memetic acceleration. I’m a half a mind to write up a Wikipedia entry on it now in order to get it going. What do you think?
