Default Re: Drive by science

Related, you don't know how much it annoys me that scientists like to give the names of people to things, sometimes not even the person who discovered it. Which is fine for fundamental particles or other things but once it gets into complex laws I would love there to be something in the name that even slightly hints towards whats in that law. It sometimes feels like scientists make this stuff more complex and obfuscated than it really needs to be.

You probably don't like Cole's Law then Ari. It's shredded cabbage with salad dressing.
