[culture] Lake's Law of Power Outlets

In any public space with a high demand for and limited supply of power outlets, such as an airport gate area, the first seats taken will be those closest to the outlets, and those seats will generally be occupied by people who do not need or care about the outlets.

Corollary: You will be resented as a creeper if you sit down next to them in an otherwise empty gate area and reach around to plug in.
