The Ceglowski Axiom, clearly Canadian

Via Joey deVilla , Accordion Guy

Fiirst came the Clarke Axiom, named after the guy who coined it, science fiction author Arthur C. Clarke:

Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Now we have Maciej Ceglowski's brilliant quip from the #joiito IRC channel:
Any sufficiently advanced society is indistinguishable from Canada.
Clever, and at least partly true.
