MURPHY’S LESSER KNOWN LAWS

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

2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

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

4. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t.

5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

6. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right,there is a 90% probability you will get it wrong.

7. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to pull out to pass them, on a hill in the fog….

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

9. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left behind by those who got there first.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.

11. A flashlight is a case for holding dead batteries.

12. The shinbone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

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

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

15. A boat is a hole in the middle of a lake, or ocean that you put all your money into.
