The Edicts of Laziness are a strange set of principles which guide a person's actions. The idea is to act in such as fashion so as to cause the least trouble to an individual.
The edicts are as follows:
Never do more work than is required.
Never do more additional work in an attempt to make your work easier.
Always use lazy people tools.
In the event that a contradiction occurs between edicts 2 and 3, do whichever sounds dumber.
For example, take the following situations:
You are taking a shower. You note that you have run out of your favorite shampoo/conditioner combo mixture, and the only thing left are separate bottles of shampoo and conditioner. To operate on the edicts of laziness, get out of the shower, go buy a bottle of your favorite stuff, go home, and continue. Here we have employed edicts 3 and 4.
You are picking up rocks from your backyard and carrying them in a bucket to dump in a field. You realise that a mere 30 yards away is a garden tractor with a small wagon attached which would keep you from having to haul the bucket around. However, due to principles 2 and 4, you must continue to lug the bucket to successfully operate by the edicts of laziness.
