Singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, for his set of equations which have described natural phenomena in a remarkably wide range of fields. Dylan’s 115th Law allows for the estimation of the distance travelled by a male human before he reaches manhood (at least 12 roads), and how many deaths it takes before western society decides that too many have died (only one, providing it’s a sufficiently young child).
