Murphy's Law

@pablostanley said: Murphy’s Law is a famous aphorism that states a straightforward rule of life - Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. This Law was named after Capt. Edward A. Murphy, an engineer working at Wright Field Aircraft Lab, who cursed technician who kept ruining tests, If there is any way to do it wrong, he will. We can invoke this rule whenever stuff doesn’t go our way, or just goes the worst way possible. I think Murphy’s Law explains Alanis Morissette’s song “Ironic” more than irony itself. Murphy’s Law draws from our inclination to amplify the negative over the positive. It uses the rules of probability to make fun of us. We expect that stuff should work out in our favor. But when things go poorly, we look for reasons.
