Basic Principles of Murphy's Law:


1.Nothing is as easy as it looks.
2.Everything takes longer than you think.
3.Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
4.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.
5.Corollary: If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.
6.If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.
7.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.
7.Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
8.If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
9.Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
10.Mother nature is a bitch.
11.It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
12.Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.
13.Every solution breeds new problems.

Don’t forget Murphy’s Rules of Dating!

If he’s smart and good-looking, he’s probably a jerk.
If he’s smart and nice, he’s not good looking.
If he’s nice and good looking, he’s probably not too bright.
If he’s all three, he’s either taken, not interested or of an alternative sexual preference.
Or, if he has all three but is single and interested, he probably doesn’t ride, or he rides a quad.
If things are going well, you will find a way to screw it up.
If things are screwed up, you will find a way to make it worse.
If you dump him, he will come back to haunt you somehow.
If you don’t, he’ll make your life miserable.
If you stay single so you can focus on your career, you’ll be lonely.
If you meet someone and cure your loneliness, you’ll be restless.


Help me--have I forgotten any?
:think
:confused:

If things are going well, never, never, NEVER say how good it's going. That's when everything will go to hell.:eek: I guarantee it.

If you think you are doing something right you will mess it up, if you know you are doing something right you will mess it up even worse.

if you lose your grip on a freshly greased part it will always land grease side down

The more complex it is the more you’re going to brake it in the process of fixing it.

You can try to make something Idiot-Proof, but they'll keep making better idiots.

The toast always lands butter side down.

When you drop your socket, it will always roll to the center-most point under your car.

Or else it will never hit the ground at all, because it's lodged somewhere in the bowels of your engine compartment that you can't see if your life depends on it.

That would be when I'm working on the bike--usually it will fall into the skid-plate, and lodge up under the cases!:(
