Do you believe in Murphy? For those who aren’t familiar with Murphy, here’s a wee explanation: Murphy’s Law is an adage or epigram that is typically stated as: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. First, there are about thirteen (13) "Murphy’s Laws," all of which can be seen here. There are also some specific laws, such as "Murphy’s Law for Copiers" ("The legibility of a copy is inversely proportional to its importance") and "Murphy’s Constant" ("Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value"). I personally like O’Toole’s Commentary on Murphy’s Law: Murphy was an optimist. You can’t work with computers as long as I did and not believe in Murphy’s laws.
