Because it has been requested, I am going to try something new.
The link below leads to a story that happened to me last year. It is linked due to containing one dirty word.
Let me know if the link works, and if I should continue this project/thread/exercise in narcissism...
"Whenever a thing can go wrong, it will." ---------------------Murphy's Law
I did not invent Murphy's Law. An engineer did; one who knew a guy named Murphy, whose variables always seemed to get the better of him. The law seemed universal enough that it's entered the English language; whenever something CAN go wrong, it WILL. Not always, of course, but enough to keep the concept alive.
Yesterday, while gluing something, I was reminded of another law that seems to me to be a physical law of the fraggin' universe, and I wondered if there was a name for it. If there isn't, it should be, and I lay it down for you now:
First Law Of Modeling Adhesives: Glue would rather stick to you than to whatever you're trying to glue.
First Corollary: A part with glue on it would rather stick to your fingers than whatever you're trying to stick it to.
Second Corollary: The type of glue used is irrelevant.
Other laws occurred to me. Perhaps I am misremembering who I'm attributing this one to, but I vaguely remember Dilvish saying something...
Dilvish's First Law: Tools put down after use will vanish instantly.
Dilvish's Second Law: The difficulty of finding the tool afterwards is directly proportionate to the briefness of the period between putting the tool down and needing to use it again.
My apologies to Dilvish if I've got this wrong. But the next laws to spring to mind, I believe I have attributed correctly...
Froggy's Postulate: No amount of organization will make available in a reasonable amount of time that one part you need for this one thing...
And these, I'm certain of.
Bedlam's First Law Of Feline Expansion: A cat's volume is variable depending on its comfort level and your inconvenience.
Bedlam's Second Law Of Feline Expansion: Any project other than simple painting will expand to consume all available space allotted.
Bedlam's Third Law Of Feline Expansion: The existence of available space for storage and/or display is invariably temporary.
Bedlam's Law Of Inverse Probability, aka Bedlam's Titan Rule: The chance of rolling a given number is inversely proportionate to the benefit it would provide.
Any others to add?
