I recently bumped upon a book called “The Complete Murphy’s Law” by Arthur Bloch.It just took me thirty seconds of skimming to make me rush to the counter to buy it,lest someone else saw it.
What made the book so interesting? Well..it was after a longtime I laughed so much reading a book.A collection of ‘laws’ like the Murphy’s,it takes the reader into a world of insights,through utterly bone tickling laws! Here’s a peek I couldn’t resist to share-
Ade’s Law- Anybody can win-unless there happens to be a second entry.
Airplane Law- When the plane you are on is late,the plane you want to transfer to is on time.
Babcock’s Law- If it can be borrowed and it can be broken,you will borrow it and you will break it.
Cannon’s Cogent Comment- The leak in the roof is never in the same location as the drip.
Carpenters Law- If you have only one nail,it will bend.
First Law of Debate- Don’t argue with a fool,people might not know the difference.
The First Discovery of Christmas Morning- Batteries not included
Extended Murphy’s Law- If a series of events can go wrong,it will do in the worst possible sequence.
Rule of Failure- If at first you don’t succeed,destroy all evidence that you have tried.
Glyme’s Formula for Success- The secret of success is sincerity.Once you can fake that,you’ve got it made.
Herblock’s Law- If it’s good,they will stop making it.
Issawi’s Law of Consumption Patterns- Other people’s patterns of expenditure and consumption are highly irrational and slightly immoral.
Jacob’s Law- To err is human-to blame it on someone else is even more human.
Kaplan’s Law of the Instrument- Give a small boy a hammer and he will find that everything he encounters needs pounding.
Laws of Gardening- Other people’s tools work only in other people’s yards.
Miksch’s Law- If a string has one end,then it has another end.
The N-1 Law- If you need four screws for the job,the first three are easy to find.
Skydivers’ Law of Hesitation- He who hesitates shall inherit the earth.
Haha.Hope you had a good time reading these few pick ups I compiled from the book.It’s weekend again,but I have lots of works lined up.We are organizing TEDx event in our University tomorrow.I am a part of creative/communications team and we have been working on lots of digital designs.Our team, that was handling the crafts works for stage design,worked whole night and they made lots of lovely decorative items.
I really wanted to make a post this morning,as I got some free time and flipped through this book,I had purchased some days back.I just wanted to share a smile with everyone! (:
Lately I have become more of a ‘reader’ at WordPress than a ‘writer’.I have been frequenting the WordPress Reader amidst my cluttered work hours,just to take a break and delve into the world of lovely bloggers!I find peace and solace in that. I surf across the posts from all the admirable bloggers I am following.It feels so amazing to read the different thoughts and expressions, all conveyed through a fine amalgamation of eloquent words.It just drives away all the worries and anxiety that comes with work.
Life feels so better with all the bloggers around! Thank you so much to you!
Have a very happy weekend!
