A manufacturer of white goods used to speak about ‘the appliance of science’ in their advertising as a double-entendre. I feel sure this was not the science they had in mind.

Organisational Science
Charles’ Law
As temperature rises,
the volume of bullshit increases.

Bernoulli’s Principle
As an organisation grows,
its grip on reality diminishes.

Lomonosov’s Law
As matter is always conserved,
Bullshitters are completely indestructible

Buoyant Force rule
Bullshitters float,
when you wish that they were submersible.

Density equation
The amount of bullshit,
divided by time it takes to deliver.

Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle
Impossible to be both honest,
and a Leader.

Archimede’s Principle
The chaos caused by a leader,
Is equal to the volume of their ego.

Planck-Einstein relationship
Links between frequency and energy,
the more you’re hit the darker the shadow.

(Loot, 2018)
