MURPHY'S OTHER 15 LAWS:

1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

2. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

3. He, who laughs last, thinks slowest.

4. A day without sunshine is like, well . Night.

5. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

6. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.

7. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

8. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

9. It is said that if you line up all the cars in the world end-to-end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them.


10. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.


11. The things that come to those that wait, may be the things left by those, who got there first.


12. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.


13. Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.


14. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of twelve people, who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

15. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in the dark.

A semi-serious Murphy article in an electronics trade

magazine some years ago elicited a couple of responses.
First was from a man reporting on a co-worker who was especially wary of Murphy's First. When (for example) proposing to join two critical wire pairs, he would go overboard on rechecking polarity, then make the connection ... reversing a pair at the last second. It always worked.

Another reported on a training session with some German engineers. Over there, it turns out, ordinary electricat fuses in homes and offices were sized pyramidically so that a 30-amp couldn't be put in place of a missing 20-amp. He asked, 'So what do you do in an emergency with no proper fuse available?'
"Oh, we just drive a nail through the old fuse."
