Three laws

Ripped from a link in recent BLDGBLOG post, although I did encounter the third law cited in this year's Golf Digest equipment issue:
  1. When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.

  2. The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.

  3. Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.

These laws asserted by Sir Arthur Clarke, noted author (2001: A Space Odyssey), inventor, and futurist.
