Murphy’s Laws

I first heard of Murphy’s Law way back when I was a young teenager.
It was on an episode of the original Star Trek. I’m sure, as obsessively documented as the ST episodes were, that you could track down the exact show, as well as its original air date.
But today’s FamilyFirst piece isn’t about Star Trek. It’s about Murphy’s Law.
Today’s pick is called Murphy’s Laws Site: all the laws of Murphy in one place.
Do you have any idea how many laws Murphy has?

The laws are classified according to circumstances. For example, fire brigade members have their own versions:

Falling trees have the right of way
Uniforms only come in two sizes, too small and too large
Never tell the Captain or Deputy Captain you have nothing to do

Or how about sewing?

If you need 6 buttons, you will find 5 in your button box
If you drop something out of your sewing basket, it will be your box of pins, with the cover off
Pinking shears get dull just by looking at them

There are Murphy’s laws for practically any circumstance. Enjoy!
