1st Law
You cannot win (that is, you cannot get something for nothing, because matter and energy are conserved).

2nd Law
You cannot break even (you cannot return to the same energy state, because there is always an increase in disorder; entropy always increases).

3rd Law
You cannot get out of the game (because absolute zero is unattainable).
