Murphy's Laws
It seems as though most of Murphy's Laws fit what we do:

1. Nothing is as easy as it looks.
2. Everything takes longer than you think.
3. Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
4. If there is a possibility of several things going wrong, the one that will cause the most damage will be the one to go wrong. Corollary: If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.
5. If anything simply cannot go wrong, it will anyway.
6. If you perceive that there are four possible ways in which a procedure can go wrong, and circumvent these, then a fifth way, unprepared for, will promptly develop.
7. Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.
8. If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
9. Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
10. Mother nature is a bitch.
11. It is impossible to make anything foolproof because fools are so ingenious.
12. Whenever you set out to do something, something else must be done first.
13. Every solution breeds new problems.

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

Murphy's Law of Copiers
The legibility of a copy is inversely proportional to its importance.

Murphy's Law of the Open Road:
When there is a very long road upon which there is a one-way bridge placed at random, and there are only two cars on that road, it follows that: (1) the two cars are going in opposite directions, and (2) they will always meet at the bridge.

Murphy's Law of Thermodynamics
Things get worse under pressure.

The Murphy Philosophy
Smile . . . tomorrow will be worse.

Quantization Revision of Murphy's Laws
Everything goes wrong all at once.

Murphy's Constant
Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value

“If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.”
--Albert Einstein
Murphy is an optimist.

14. all mechanical work requires a blood sacrifice
15. The tool that you need will disappear no matter if it is stored in a locked cabinet and it was there all the time.
The more urgently you need said tool the harder it will be to find.
The moment you no longer need the tool it will magically materialize in front of you.

16. If you throw a tool out of anger it will always hit and damage something valuable (that will usually suddenly materialize in the trajectory so it can serve as a target) or the tool will will hit something that will fall and damage something.

17. A socket that fit a screw in front of the tool cabinet will no longer fit once you have crawled back under your car and spent an eternity to insert said screw into the hole it belongs.

"If I were you...... I´d rather be me."  Tongue

Check out my video:

Law #18: When you drop a socket, it will automatically roll to the most unreachable spot under your car possible.

Law #19: When a screw/bolt slips from your hands in the engine bay, it will never fall to the floor rather it falls into some unknown crevice never to be seen again.

19a But it will be heard!

Rick, not Rich or Dick or Richard
Law 20...Screw Murphy!
