User Friendly Thermodynamics

Geek summarizes the three laws of Thermodynamics in User Friendly terminology:

  1. You can’t win
  2. You can’t break even
  3. You’re always playing the game

for the slightly more scientifically minded:

  1. The amount of energy in a system never increases.
  2. The total entropy of the universe is increasing.
  3. You can’t reach absolute zero and absolute zero is the only place where the laws don’t apply.
