What are the other Booth's rules?
TIL about the Booth's Rule #2:
The safer skydiving gear becomes, the more chances skydivers will take, in order to keep the fatality rate constant.
Okay, if it's #2, what's #1? I can't seem to find it using Google. Is there any to start with? Are there Booth's rules with N>2?
I think the fact there's no Booth's Rule #1 is part of the joke
Booth's Rule #1 - Never talk about Booth's Rule #1
Booth's rule #1: always start your index at 2 in lists.
This did not make him popular among programmers.
“Should array indices start at 0 or 1? My compromise of 0.5 was rejected without, I thought, proper consideration.”

I thought Booth's Rule was "sic semper tyrannis", but maybe that was a different Booth.
