Godwin's law

From the Wikipedia:

Godwin's Law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies)[1] is a humorous observation coined by Mike Godwin in 1990, and which has become an Internet adage. It states: "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3]

So basically, if you are in an argument, given enough time someone will make a comparison to either Hitler or Nazis. One of these days I should time it. :)

  1. It's true! Al Gore threw in a Nazi/Hitler argument with Global Warming. Funny how that happens.
