Murphy -

If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catastrophe, then someone will do it.-Edward A. Murphy, Jr.

In 1949, George Nichols, project manager with the Californian aviation firm, Northrop, heard his colleague, Captain E. Murphy, of Wright Field Aviation Laboratory, claim: If anything can go wrong, it will...

The other line moves faster.-- Ettore's Observation

Anything dropped in the bathroom falls in the toilet. -- Flucard's Corollary

Enough research will tend to support your theory. - Murphy's Law of Research

Anything that can go wrong, will -Larry Niven ,Finagle's Law of Dynamic Negatives,

Nothing is impossible for those who don't have to do it. -From Murphy's Laws of Combat
