Kottke has a post up on Edge magazine's Question of the Year. It's What's Your Law? The idea is that any reasonably intelligent person will have come up with at least two Laws that govern life. In that spirit, here are mine. Technically, though, one's a law, one's more of a principle.

Mike's Law
The amount of energy a person or a piece of mail expends on proclaiming its own importance is inversely proportional to its actual importance.

Mike's Razor
When more than one hypothesis fit the available data, believe whichever one makes you happiest unless and until contravening data is found.
