Subject: RE: BS: Newly-discovered laws of nature
Mathematical theory (I can't remember which one, it's over 50 years since I was at Uni) state that a closed system has an equal number of sources and sinks. This is certainly true of pens in an office: for every individual like me who can never find one, there is an opposite whose desk drawer is full of them.
