    Lesser Known Laws

    1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them
    speak.


    2. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.


    3. Those who live by the sword, get shot by those who don't.


    4. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a
    90% probability you'll get it wrong.


    5. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to
    pass them, five or six at a time, on a hill, in the fog.


    6. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.


    7. Flashlight: A metal tube used to store dead batteries.


    8. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.


    9. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.


    10. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart
    enough to get out of jury duty.

    It worked for O.J. Simpson, and how!



    I always thought this Murphy's corollary especially apt:

    "Murphy's Law was not propounded by Murphy, but by another man of the same name."

    Murphy's law for when I'm working on my old house. It will always take three times as long and I'll be missing one essential tool/part.

    Remind me of Murphy's Laws of the Workshop:

    1. All workshops have 8 bazillion drawers, coffee cans and bins of every conceivable part, fastener or doohickey - except the one needed.

    2. Hardware stores have 80 bazillion available parts, fasteners or doohickeys - but not the one needed, which has to be ordered.

    3. Hardware stores always close 5 minutes before you realize you need to make the trip.

    I could go on - as could anyone with a workshop, but I have to scoot.
