reminds me kind of like the first three tongue and cheek rules of thermodynamics.

1. You can't win
2. You can't tie
3. You can't quit

Which is reference to the rules "You can't get more energy out of a system then you put into a system". "You can't get the same energy out of a system that you put into a system". "This is true for everything".

Of course, the actual first three rules of thermodynamics are very different but not as funny.

Ha! I'd never heard that one. Where did you first hear it?

We have a genetic-level family fascination with investing impossible engines, more later.

Off for breakfast with Linnet! :) (and possibly her imaginary boyfriend!)
