ElJamoquio's Law

We all know Godwin's Law
Godwin's Law
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."

and Murphy's Law
Murphy's Law
"Anything that can go wrong will go wrong."

we might've missed this one...
Muphry's Law
"If you write anything criticizing editing or proofreading, there will be a fault of some kind in what you have written."

and these
Campbell's Law
"The more any quantitative social indicator is used for social decision-making, the more subject it will be to corruption pressures and the more apt it will be to distort and corrupt the social processes it is intended to monitor."

Brooks' Law
"Adding manpower to a late software project makes it later."

Amara's Law

"We tend to overestimate the effect of a technology in the short run and underestimate the effect in the long run."

Hofstadter's Law
"It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take into account Hofstadter's Law"

Parkinson's Law
"Work expands so as to fill the time available for its completion."

Segal's Law

"A man with a watch knows what time it is. A man with two watches is never sure."

and might I be anti-humble enough to add
ElJamoquio's Law
"Every damn thread on PentaxForums eventually ends up about a mythical Full Frame camera".

monochrome's Law, already proposed: The Singularity is near. We will achieve the singularity when every thread on PentaxForums begins with a discussion of FullFrame.

You forgot Murphy's Law's Engineering Corollaries:

* The smaller the design change, the greater its negative consequences.
* Anything that tests OK in the lab will fail in the field.
* Interchangeable parts don't.

Many more here: http://www.acc.umu.se/~snaggen/Categories/Murphys%20Laws/

You forgot Luecking's law:
Every hard disk, whatever be its size, will fill within three months

And I agree with the theory of singularity. It is near!

On a more positive note, that means we will also see the end of the FF threads.

Are half-frame APS-C sensors half-full, or half-empty?
Once a frame is full, when does it need to be emptied?
Why are half-frame dSLRs bigger than full-frame SLRs?

When will Pentax release a FullCard dSLR?
