Gyanendra’s Law affirmed

Gyanendra’s Law states that a government that shuts down its entire national telecom network does not survive. The resignation of Hosni Mubarak affirms the law.

Named for the last King of Nepal. Could have been called Jaruselzki’s Law, but Nepal could do with some visibility one thinks. And it is a toss-up which tyrant’s name is harder to pronounce.

The act of pulling the kill switch could be named in dishonor of Mubarak, as in doing a Mubarak; a partial Mubarak; a short Mubarak and so on.
