Much as the background temperature of the universe grows ever closer to absolute zero (we're sitting around 10 Kelvin at the moment according to my astronomy class, but 2.7 K according to yossarian, just a few billion years to go either way!), this is the theory that given enough time, every node on Everything will reach a steady state of -2 reputation. I'm not quite sure why this would happen, but the theory is elegant and must therefore be utterly true without proof.

I can't take credit for this one, 'twas Pseudo_Intellectual's idea in da Chatterbox after some prodding by myself.
