A Few Other Examples of Murphy’s Law

My Comments: According to WordPress, whose templates I use for this website, this is my 900th blog post since I started this in April, 2011.

Now that the hurricane has gone off to harass someone else, please accept my wishes to you and your family for a fun July 4th.

Today is not a day to be thinking about the crisis de jour and all the crap that threatens to make our lives miserable. It’s a day to relax and reflect on good stuff. What follows is my feeble effort to add a little levity to the equation.

1. Ralph’s Observation:   It is a mistake to allow any mechanical object to realize that you are in a hurry.

2. Quantized Revision of Murphy’s Law:   Everything goes wrong all at once.

3. Zymurgy’s First Law of Evolving Systems Dynamics:   Once you open a can of worms, the only way to recan them is to use a bigger can.

4. Glatum’s Law of Materialistic Acquisitiveness:   The perceived usefulness of an article is inversely proportional to its actual usefulness once bought and paid for.

5. Etorre’s Observation:   The other line moves faster.

6. Lowery’s Law:   If it jams – force it.   If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

7. Knight’s Law:   Life is what happens to you while you are making other plans.
