Kazkek, "Murphys law" is basically the idea that if something can go wrong, it will.

Basicly, if theres even a chance it will go wrong, it will.

I highly disagree with Murphy's law, because it handles it as fact... but in reality if things are under control, they won't go wrong. When you leave something on its way, Murphy's law is under action. If you care for that thing, it won't go wrong, because you will already know that before it could happen. e.g.: if you buy a Power-PC , Windows XP won't go wrong. But if you buy the cheapest parts, and they don't even match correctly, XP will definately go wrong... now that's truely Murphy's Law.

Same thing with your kids. If you don't care for them, they are more likely to become criminals or serial killers, but if you care for them, you reduce that chance very much.

So what I actually point to, that Murphy's Law isn't THAT perfect, it only works if things are out of your hand. Personally I never blame Murphy's Law for anything, I don't consider that true. If things go wrong near me, I consider that my responsibility, not pointing to a manmade law looking for excuses...!!

Got to know.
