I just realized that it's called Arcanine because it's species is the Legendary Pokémon (as in arcane).

meaning i agree with you and that it is an interesting rando thought. i'd hate to have a predator law named after me or a victim law named after a child. both are very bad situations giving rise to that law name

Better than having a disease named after me (unless it's something cool like Barclay's Protomorphosis Syndrome)

There's a law for my name:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campbell%27s_law

Quote:
"The more any quantitative social indicator is used for social decision-making, the more subject it will be to corruption pressures and the more apt it will be to distort and corrupt the social processes it is intended to monitor."[1]
And I've definitely pointed that out before re:standardized testing

I wouldn't mind it if it was a good law like Ohm's law or Graham's Law.
