Murphy’s Laws of Love, War, Technology and Computers

Murphy’s Law—I love these things so I thought I would share some of them.

I found this great site—Murphy’s Laws Site— that lists several Murphy’s laws if only I had posted this yesterday I could have included the ones about love. :-/

  • All the good ones are taken.
  • If the person isn’t taken, there’s a reason.
  • If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Love is a matter of chemistry, sex is a matter of physics.
  • and more (just had to include a few of them ;-P)

Some of my favorite are Murphy’s Laws of war.  Things such as

  • Friendly fire – isn’t.
  • Recoilless rifles – aren’t.
  • If it’s stupid but it works, it isn’t stupid.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, call in an air strike.
  • The easy way is always mined.
  • Tracers work both ways.
  • Exceptions prove the rule, and destroy the battle plan.
  • and many more

But there are also Murphy’s Law of Technology and Murphy’s Law of Computers too if you haven’t seen them.  The include Laws such as

  • Any given program, when running, is obsolete.
  • If a program is useful, it will have to be changed.
  • If a program is useless, it will have to be documented.
  • Bugs will appear in one part of a working program when another ‘unrelated’ part is modified.
  • Software bugs are impossible to detect by anybody except the end user.
  • and many more.

Enjoy! 😀
