Murphy's Other Laws
Whoever Murphy was, he was a prolific lawmaker. Best known is his First Law ("Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong"), but he didn't stop there.
Murphy's Second Law:
Everything takes longer than you think.
Murphy's Third Law:
Nothing is as easy as it looks.
Murphy's Fourth Law:
If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong.
Murphy's Fifth Law:
If anything just cannot go wrong, it will anyway.
Murphy's Sixth Law:
If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong and circumvent these, then a fifth way unprepared for, will promptly develop.
Murphy's Seventh Law:
Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
(Farnsdick’s Corollary:After things have gone from bad to worse, the cycle will repeat itself)
Murphy's Eighth Law:
If everything seems to be going well, you obviously have overlooked something.
Murphy's Ninth Law:
Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
Murphy's Tenth Law:
Mother Nature is a bitch.
Murphy's Eleventh Law:
It is possible to make anything foolproof, because fools are so ingenious.
