The Law of Data Entropy
AKA the second law of data dynamics:
"whenever data distribution is out of equilibrium a potential or data-dynamic "force" (the gradient of a potential) exists that the world acts spontaneously to dissipate or minimize."

Just like a similar bloke like me in an insurance company can see it.
Ahh, but I don't have kids, but if someone with kids can see your DNA records why not me?
