Murphy's lesser known laws

Published:

Murphy's lesser known laws

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

2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

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

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

5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

6. 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.

7. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, five or six at a time, on a hill, in the fog.

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

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

10. 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.

11. A flashlight is a case for holding dead batteries.

12. The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

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

14. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Funny. #13 is very clever, so is #1.   I always hear#14 and don't agree with it because it mocks our justice system, but this is supposed to be a humorous blog entry, so I won't get into personal, political views. Thanks for #11. I need to check my flashlights.

Number 6 sounds like the story of my life....lol

But true...A lot of times when looking for an address, I'll come up to a stop sign, and it's a" T" in the street . I have to make a right or left, and most of the time, I can't see the addresses at the T stop, because of inadequate signage.

And of course, when I pick one out of thin air, it's mostly the wrong choice, and then I have to do a 3 point turn to go back the other way. Sometimes I'll pick a direction, and do a quick switcharoo and say a gigliamoo just for the hell of it, but there is no improvement in choosing correctly...lol
