The Little Laws of Life
I’m reading a book called Winning the Loser’s Game and in it it mentions Ettore’s Law, something I had never heard of before. While looking it up I came across all these others, some I had heard but most I had not.

Can anyone add any more to this list?


Murphy’s Law - Anything that can go wrong, will.

Roos’ Law - if there’s a harder way of doing something, someone will find it.

Coolidge’s Law - Anytime you don’t want anything, you get it.

Ettore’s Law - The other line moves faster.

Peter’s Law - The unexpected always happens.

Ade’s Law - Anybody can win - unless there happens to be a second entry.

Maier’s Law - If facts do not conform to theory, they must be disposed of.

Berra’s Law - You can observe a lot just by watching

Clopton’s Law - For every credibility gap there is a gullibility fill.

Runyon’s Law - The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, but that’s the way to bet.

Coolidge’s 2nd Law - A lost article invariably shows up after you replace it.

Coughlin’s Law - Don’t talk unless you can improve the silence.

Gomez’ Law - If you don’t throw it, they can’t hit it.

Lec’s Immutable Law - the first requisite for immortality is death.

Levenson’s Law - No matter how well a toupee blends in back, it always look like hell in front.

Ms. Peter’s Law - Today if you’re not confused you’re just not thinking clearly.

Barnum’s Law - You can fool most of the people - most of the time.

Pope’s Law - All looks yellow to a jaundiced eye.

Truman’s Law - If you can’t convince them, confuse them.

Tuchman’s Law - If power corrupts, weakness in the seat of power, with its constant necessity of deals and bribes and compromising arrangements, corrupts even more.

Gates’ Law - If there isn’t a law, there will be.

Sod's law - While Murphy's law says that anything that can go wrong, will go wrong (eventually), Sod's law requires that it always go wrong with the worst possible outcome.

I feel so much, and yet I feel nothing.
I am a rock, I am the sky, the birds and the trees and everything beyond.
I am the wind, in the fields in which I roar. I am the water, in which I drown.

I don’t recall the name of this one but it says:

Mechanic’s Law - When working on a car the tool or part you drop will come to rest precisely below the center of the car.

I grew up in Miami and spent a lot of time on South Beach oggling the girls. I just recalled an observation I made at the time:

Desirability is inversely proportional to distance.
