Hoppy Mother's Day, DPers! Anyone Experience Cudnoski's Theorum Today?Submitted by Chris Conspiraski on Tue, 12/25/2012 - 17:35
I'm sure we're all familiar with the Godwin's Law phenomenon, which states that:
given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis.
Well, I've discovered, I believe, a similar phenomenon that happens IRL (in real life) which I'm christening Cudnoski's Law, in honor of myself. And it goes like this:
Given enough time, any gathering of immediate and extended family for a holiday celebration or any other event, conversation inevitably reverts to discussion about our pocket digital devices and all of their fancy interactive features.
Has this phenomenon been discovered before or am I truly breaking new ground here?
