    Default Murphy's Laws

    Murphy's First Law: Nothing is as easy as it looks.

    Murphy's Second Law: Everything takes longer than you think.

    Murphy's Third Law: In any field of endeavor, anything that can go wrong will go wrong.

    Murphy's Fourth Law: If there is a possibility that several things can go wrong, then the one that will cause the greatest damage will be the one to go wrong.

    Murphy's Fifth Law: If anything absolutely can NOT go wrong, it will anyway.

    Murphy's Sixth Law: 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.

    Murphy's Seventh Law: Left to themselves, things tend to go from bad to worse.

    Murphy's Eighth Law: If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

    Murphy's Ninth Law: Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.

    What's that circuitry called again ? The one built into every photocopier that measures your sense of urgency when going to use it and then generates a paper jam the severity of which is directly proportional to the sense of urgency ?
