About Me

My photo

A man of many words. Profane, profound, loyal to a fault and a right rat bastard. I love the finer things in life: expensive cigars, cheap women and all the salted, cured meats I can eat. A friend to dogs, lover of humanity and despiser of people. If I were King the world would be a better place, because, well...I would be King! Oh, and I like ice cream.

Godwin's Law: Using Hitler/Nazi References in an Argument or Debate

Saw a reference to Godwin's Law in a book I'm reading ("Robot Uprisings"). Below is the Wiki link. A fellow named Mike Godwin came up with it. The interesting thing is once you break out the Hitler/Nazi allusion you lose the argument. Good call.
