Laws we must live with.

1. Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch & you'll have to pee.

2. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

3. Law of Probability - The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4. Variation Law - If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.

5. Law of Physical Surfaces - The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor, are directly correlated to the newness & cost of the carpet or rug.

6. Wilson 's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.

Law #5 reminds me of a perpetual motion machine I had heard about once.
Tie a piece of buttered toast (buttered side facing up) to the back of a cat and give the kitty a toss.

The law of Plumbing Repair - You fix the broken or leaking part and when done the next part in line leaks and so on and so forth within a few days you have replaced 100% of all your plumbing.

That is why I'm a electrician and not a plumber.

I'll add to #4- Same thing happens at the store. I always find the person in line with an item with no sku on it.

RV Trade in law - you always trade for new model just after spending lots of money fixing up the old one.

I discovered this one the hard way on a hot summer day.

The law of chicken cleaning: Once your hands are covered in blood and chicken feathers flys and mosquitos begin landing on your face.

I agree with Crusader. Measure twice, cut once, and then beat the heck out of it with a big hammer.

Uh oh! I just had my tires replaced and installed a new changeover regulator, I guess I'll be trading it in soon.
