Murphy's Lesser Known Laws

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

He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

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

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, five or six at a time, on a hill, in the fog.

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

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

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

Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.

The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

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

When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

That one was used quite a lot when Josh was in the Navy.

Why not?
You're not going to meet someone coming the other way.

Well, since we've ascertained that he's not in a car (since they're all lined up) he could be on a motorcycle. And thus, you realise you've not discounted all the people on motorcycles, push bikes, traction engines and of course loony bin escapees going down the road in their carpet slippers on a Segway.

Wouldn't you want its mirror image so that it would fit correctly on the other foot?

And that is why motorcyclists hate drivers... Because drivers think they are the only vehicles on the road.

Perhaps I should have said "you're not going to meet anyone important" [evil]
