Godwin's Law in action--

I recently joined the mailing list for my Home-Owner's Association, just for "fun." There's a massive--maybe endless--storm waging about the HOA raising rates, lowering services, and people parking in the street.

I was chatting on the sidelines with another member over e-mail.

Me: How long do you think it will be before someone compares someone else to Hitler? I give it four days, tops.

Her: That's kind of generous! I'm thinking two days.

Sure enough, two days later, someone, in a sorta-kinda eloquent post about giving up freedom in exchange for a little protection, compares the situation to Nazi Germany. Wow!

Hey. Godwin's Law.

Yep, it's inevitable. The only people that can avoid it are the people that are aware of it. Kind of like gravity.

See you Saturday evening at the SA meet?

In my neighborhood messageboard, people got their panties in a twist about an officer's post about VIN etching and optional sign-up for pulling your car over if it's seen between 1-5 am. Seriously thinking their rights were in danger of being taken away, and bringing up the Bill of Rights and stuff. Straight up big brother paranoia!
