    Love this an it's so true...


    THE PRIME AXIOM: In any field of scientific endeavor, anything that
    can go wrong, will.

    2. If the possibility exists of several things going wrong, the one that
    will go wrong is the one that will do the most damage.
    3. Everything will go wrong at one time.
    3.1 That time is always when you least expect it.
    4. If nothing can go wrong, something will.
    5. Nothing is as easy as it looks.
    6. Everything takes longer than you think.
    7. Left to themselves, things always go from bad to worse.
    8. Nature always sides with the hidden flaw.
    9. Given the most inappropriate time for something to go wrong, that's
    when it will occur.
    10. Mother Nature is a Swear word!.
    10.1 The universe is not indifferent to intelligence, it is actively
    hostile to it.
    11. If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked
    12. If in any problem you find yourself doing an immense amount of work,
    the answer can be obtained by simple inspection.
    13. Never make anything simple and efficient when a way can be found to
    make it complex and wonderful.
    14. If it doesn't fit, use a bigger hammer.
    15. In an instrument or device characterized by a number of plus-or-minus
    errors, the total error will be the sum of all the errors adding in
    the same direction.
    16. In any given calculation, the fault will never be placed if more than
    one person is involved.
    16.1 In any given discovery, the credit will never be properly placed
    if more than one person is involved.
    17. All warranty and guarantee clauses become invalid upon payment of the
    final invoice.
    18. Murphy's Law: "If there are two or more ways to do something, and one
    of those ways can result in a catastrophe, then someone will do it."

    when i was about 5, my dad dug the back garden over, got it nice and level, seeded it, set an intricate system of garden canes and string to stop birds taking the seed. the next day, i threw a sicky and was off school and we saw this bloke charging up the drive, and lo and behold, a horse, A HORSE, was in the back garden, wrecked the lot! 50 odd houses on the estate and it chose ours!
