LAW OF THE PERVERSITY OF NATURE:

  • You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter

LAW OF SELECTIVE GRAVITY:

  • An object will fall so as to do the most damage.

Jenning’s Corollary:  The chance of the bread falling with the buttered side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.

Klipstein’s Corollary:  The most delicate component will be the one to drop.

 

From Murphy’s Law and other reasons why things go wrong by Arthur Bloch.
