RE: The Little Laws of Life
One I heard at a diving resort at Mabul Island.

Diver's Law: If it's very ugly or very beautiful or does not move away when you get closer ... don't touch it!

(which, as I have said before, is equally applicable to girlfriends).

This one did actually catch on in the place I worked (last century):

DLJ's Network Law:
Any neatly coiled length of cable, when left unattended for more than a day, will tangle itself into a mass of inextricable knots.

Bucky's Law :
If you decide to go to Target or get groceries, whatever line you get in will have an idiot in front of you, who waits until after the items are rung, then fumbles around looking for his/her check book, takes about 10 minutes to write it, and then it's not accepted.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

“The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the ability to reach it.”
– Chloe Traeger”

The occurrence of the equipment problem is inversely proportional to the distance of the repair technician from the equipment.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Murphy’s Constant:
Matter will be damaged in direct proportion to its value.

The Law of Punctuality:
The only things that start on time are those that you’re late for.

Law of Complexity:
Complex problems have simple, easy to understand wrong answers.

Axiom of Etiquette:
In a social situation, the most difficult thing to do is usually the right thing to do.

Having worked in the Radio Frequency business for many years, I will add Fireball's corollary-

Any operating RF system will act flaky at some point during test. The problem will be isolated to an RF cable connector that was properly tightened at installation and had had no work performed on it, yet is now loose. Angry I'm still trying to figure out how the RF-atrons can work cable connections loose.

As far as the tangled cables are concerned, I can point you to the appropriate math texts on knot theory, if you are really interested.

Hanlan's Razor: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity

"While religions tell us next to nothing useful or true about the universe, they do tell us an enormous amount - perhaps an embarrassing amount - about ourselves, about what we value, fear and lust after." Iain M Banks
