Newton’s other lesser-known laws

Wednesday 1 December 2010, 7.28pm HKT


Isaac Newton (1643-1727), English theologian, astronomer and scientist, is famous for his work on classical mechanics and optics.

Newtie also had other laws, too.

First law

A boy in love with a girl continues to be in love with her, and a girl in love with a boy continues to be in love with him, until and unless any external agent (a brother or father of the girl) comes into play and breaks the legs of the boy.

Second law

The rate of change of intensity of love of a girl towards a boy is directly proportional to his bank balance.

Third law

The force applied by a boy while proposing to a girl is equal and opposite to the force applied by the girl while using her sandals.

Universal law

Love can neither be created nor be destroyed, it can only be transferred from one girlfriend to another girlfriend.
