Abridged Collection of Interdisciplinary Laws
Collection of modern proverbs. The collection started in 1974, when Conrad Schneiker first typed in Murphy’s Laws to explore the workings of a new computer at the University of Arizona Computing Center.
He added a couple of pages of other laws encountered in the course of his compulsive use of the campus libraries and campus bookstores. When he posted the list on his door, people started adding their own favorites and the list grew quickly.
Andrews’s Canoeing Postulate:
No matter which direction you start it’s always against the wind coming back.
Law of Annoyance:
When working on a project, if you put away a tool that you’re certain you’re finished with, you will need it instantly.
Anthony’s Law of Force:
Don’t force it, get a larger hammer.
