Murphy's Lesser Known Laws

I don’t usually never post comical e-mails I’ve received to this site, but I think this site needs some cheering up of late (and the Comical category is looking a little sad right now), so may I present 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 vending machines.
  • Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don’t.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

(Thanks Ange!)

Is this just so you can try out your snazzy new blockquotes?

How dare you! Actually it has shown up a problem where if a blockquote only contains one line, then half the graphic is lost.
