Murphy’s Law, Fifthtuple

These were included in one of my Facebook posts from a dozen years ago. i wanted to make sure they were archived here. i would add some goofy guy comments to each one, but some hit too close to home.


“Murphy’s Law” desk calendar has had a spate of great observations in the last few days:

Pascal on Man: The more I see of men, the better I like my dog.

Bloch’s Law of Golf: The only time your ball listens to you when you’re yelling at it is when you are giving it misinformation.

Jerome’s Rule: It is always the best policy to speak the truth – unless of course you are an exceptionally good liar.

Zappa’s Law: There are two things on earth that are universal: hydrogen and stupidity.

  1. Jim, in re to your 10/3 post, “Hear, Hear!!!” And I LOVE the group of “laws” you posted. Can’t praise your piece on your dad enough – it’s exceptional, inspirational and humbling at the same time. And I was for years a Texas Rangers season ticket holder (shared with a group) until they went crazy and traded away all my favorite players (including Jurickson Profar!) it’s very hard for me to enjoy sports anymore, even soccer (football to the rest of the world) although it really is the “beautiful game” for all the reasons you detail so eloquently.
