That Murphy!

Hi everyone and welcome to a bit of humor once again.  Ever hear of Murphy?  He came up with Murphy’s Laws.  Murphy did exist and coined the first “law” back around 1948. A number of people have added to that over the years.  But it’s amazing how true some of these “laws” really are.  Number 13 was a phrase I always used before I even knew it was one of Murphy’s Laws.  Oh well.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little bit of fun for your day.  And some of these can be found in slight variations as well.  But these are the ones I chose to share with you today.

1- In any field of scientific endeavor, anything that can go wrong, will go wrong, and at the worst possible moment.

2- If the possibility exists of several things going wrong, the one that will go wrong is the one that will do the most damage.

3- Everything will go wrong at one time. That time is when you least expect it.

4- If nothing can go wrong, something will anyway.

5- Nothing is as easy as it looks.

6- Everything takes longer than you think.

7- Left to themselves, things always go from bad to worse.

8- Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

9- Given the most inappropriate time for something to go wrong, that’s when it will occur.

10- If something seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

11- If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work, the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.

12- Never make anything simple and efficient when a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.

13- If it doesn’t fit, use a bigger hammer.

14- In any given calculation, the fault will never be placed if more than one person is involved.

15- In any given discovery, the credit will never be properly placed if more than one person is involved.

16- All warranty and guarantee clauses become invalid upon payment of the final notice.

17- If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catastrophe, then someone will do it.

18. You will always find something in the last place you look.

19. The chance of a piece of bread falling with the buttered side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet .

20. Anything you try to fix will take longer and cost more than you thought

21. Any tool dropped while repairing a car will roll underneath to the exact center.

22. The repairman will have never seen a model quite like yours before

23. When a broken appliance is demonstrated for the repairman, it will work perfectly.

24. Everybody has a scheme for getting rich that will not work.

25. You will remember that you forgot to take out the garbage when the garbage truck is 2 doors away.

That’s it for now, although there are many more and I will probably do another post to share more of these wonderful “laws”.  Anyway, these days a good laugh is good medicine for us all while we stay locked down in different ways.  Stay safe everyone, have a wonderful day and God bless!

Steve and Muffin.
