My favourites are all facts of existance - that is they are discovered facts that govern the universe.

1.  e=mc^2

2.  The sum of the squares of the sides of a right-angled triangle equals the square of the hypotenuse.

3.  The Planck length and time units.

4.  The concept of Spacetime.

5.  Umm... probably the second law of thermodynamics.
...And its claws are as big as cups, and for some reason it's got a tremendous fear of stamps! And Mrs Doyle was telling me it's got magnets on its tail, so if you're made out of metal it can attach itself to you! And instead of a mouth it's got four arses!
