Bakers Rule: No matter how careful you are when working with flour, it will get everywhere.

Corollary one: The amount of flour spilled is inversely proportional to the level of caution used.

I don't remember the name, but there was someone studying the concept & had it deemed his law basically how psychological effects show.

If you have less work to do, it'll still take you to the end of your normal shift to do.

Work will expand in direct proportion to the time allotted for it! And it is true. I ran a route when I had 28 stops to do in one day it got it done as fast as when I had a dozen!

OMG, that reminds me of an ex boyfriend. Hadn't thought of him in a long time. He ALWAYS found a harder way to do things, and often it failed. He drove me bonkers. Hobo

I have a good friend like this. I refer to him as "the path of greatest resistance ".

(26-12-2015 09:49 AM)Full Circle Wrote:  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.

Louie's Law, Fat people don't get to fuck much.

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.

DLJ's Network Law sounds very familiar. As a Pastafarian and musician, I've witnessed the image of the Lord many times in a case of audio cables that were neatly coiled only days earlier. Funny how his noodly appendages touch us all. Praise Carbs. R'amen.

Berra's 2nd Law: If there's a 50/50 chance something will go wrong, 90% of the time it will.

If something needs to be done immediately, give it to the laziest guy on your team. He'll always find the quickest/easiest way to get it done.
