Law of Forumite Inertia

From The Science Fiction Forum Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

A contradiction of normal physical laws which is common among certain Forumites. The law is as follows:


"A Forumite at rest tends to remain at rest unless acted upon by an outside force. A Forumite in motion likewise tends to remain at rest unless acted upon by an outside force."


One theory as to why this occurs is that it is due to prolonged exposure of Forumites to the aura of apathy that permeates the Forum. Some call this aura "The Sloth", and say that it emanates from "Mediocritans": tiny creatures...in our bodies...that make us not do things. Others say that we look into the Forum's "Dead Lights"...and we want to be there. The truth, of course, may be never be known.
