Laws of the Internet

There are a lot of lists, but most of them are stupid and derivative. These are the only ones that I think are really true:

1. Godwin's Law.
The longer an internet discussion continues, the more likely it is that someone will make a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.

2. Poe's Law.
Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humor, it is uttrerly impossible to parody a fundamentalist in such a way that someone won't mistake for the genuine article.

34. If it exists, there is porn of it.
