Today we are going to Muse about laws. If this is your first visit, welcome to Musings. If you have been here before, welcome back. Over time we are going to talk about many things: the past, the present, perhaps the future, travel, art, society and more. Wherever my musing takes me. I hope you will come along with me.

What a Week!
Mid-term elections, election recount, terrible fires, another shooting, a significant birthday . . . there has been a lot going on. As a result I have not given much attention to my musing. Fortunately a friend sent me a bit of humor which I will share with you.
Much of this is so true!
Law of Mechanical Repair – After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you’ll have to pee. (Also has application in the kitchen if washing dishes, handling flour, etc.)
Law of Gravity – Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible place in the universe.
Law of Probability – The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.
Law of Random Numbers – If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal; someone always answers.
Variation Law – If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.
Law of Waiting Lines – Whatever personal algorithm or selection process you use, the line not selected will move faster.
Law of the Bath – When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone will ring.
Law of Close Encounters – The probability of meeting someone you know INCREASES dramatically when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with.
Law of the Result – When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, IT WILL!!!
Law of Biomechanics – The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.
Law of the Theatre & Football Stadium – At any event, the people whose seats are farthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.
Murphy’s Law of Lockers – If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.
Law of Physical Surfaces – The chances of an open-faced jam sandwich landing face down on a floor are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug
Law of Physical Appearance – If the clothes fit, they’re ugly.
The 50-50-90 Law – Whenever there’s a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there’s a 90% probability that you’ll get it wrong.
Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy – As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it OR the store will stop selling it!
Doctors’ Law – If you don’t feel well and make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there, you’ll feel better. But don’t make an appointment and you’ll stay sick.
