“The Immutable Laws of Nature”

Law of Mechanical Repair: After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you’ll have to pee.
Law of Gravity: Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible place.
Law of Probability: The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of
your act.
Law of Random Numbers: If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal; someone
always answers.
Law of Variable Motion: If you change traffic lanes or checkout queues, the one you were in will
always move faster than the one you are in now.
Law of the Bath: When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone will ring.
Law of Close Encounters: The probability of meeting someone you know increases
exponentially when you are alongside someone you don’t want to be seen with.
Law of the Damned Thing: When you try to prove to someone that a machine or device won’t
work, it will.
Law of Biomechanics: The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
Law of the Spectator: At any theatrical, musical or sporting event, the people whose seats are
furthest from the aisle always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several
times to go for food, for beer, or to the toilet and who leave before the end of the performance or
game. Those who occupy the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or
big bellies and stay seated beyond the end of the performance. The aisle people also are very
surly folk.
Law of Coffee: As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your partner will ask you to do
something which will last until the coffee is cold.
Murphy’s Law of Lockers: When only 2 people are in a locker room, they will have adjacent
Law of Plane Surfaces: The chance that a slice of marmalade toast will land face down on a floor is
directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.
Law of Logical Argument: Anything is possible when you don’t know what you are talking about.
Law of Physical Appearance: If clothes fit, they’re ugly.
Law of Public Speaking: A closed mouth gathers no feet
Law of Commercial Marketing: As soon as you find a product that you really like, it will cease production or the store will stop selling it.
Law of Psychosomatic Medicine: If you don’t feel well, make an appointment to see to the doctor and by the time you get there, you’ll feel better. If you don’t make an appointment you’ll
stay sick.
