    If you wish to forget anything on the spot, make a note that this thing is to be remembered.

    Edgar Allen Poe

    When you have an important meeting rst thing in the morning, your alarm clock will stop working in the middle of the night. Your husband or wife will have used all the hot water so your shower is ice cold. The kids will have used all the milk so instead of cereal, youll have a bagel but there wont be any more cream cheese either. Your car wont start or youll run out of gas. There will be a huge pile-up on the highway and youll get stuck in gridlock traf c on your way to work. The scenarios could go on and on. Its a universal belief that whenever you need everything to go right, everything will go wrong. Thats Murphys Law for you. So who was this Murphy who created a law that causes so much grief? Well, thats where Snippetz comes in. Read on to nd out!

    THE ORIGINALMURPHYS LAW

    It might come as a surprise but Mur-phys Law is an actual law describing a universal truth. It states: If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a catas-trophe, then someone will do it. Now, whether or not that is a fact is debat-able. Heres how the law came to be:

    In 1949, Captain Edward A. Murphy Jr., an engineer in the United States Air Force, was working on a project called MX981 to defi nitively show how many Gs (the force of gravity) the human body could handle. He and the other project team members working at Ed-wards Air Force Base in California de-signed a rocket sled they affectionately named Gee Whiz which they used to simulate the force of an airplane crash. Going more than 200 miles per hour, the sled cruised down a half-mile track and slammed to a stop in less than one second.

    Naturally, in order to see how this would affect a human being, the team needed a human test subject. This is where Colonel John Paul Stapp comes into play. As a physician with the Air Force, Stapp decided he would volun-teer to take the terrifying (and appar-ently painful) ride in the name of sci-ence. He withstood months of rides in which he suffered broken bones and

    blood vessels in his eyes and concus-sion after concussion.

    In order to more accurately measure the amount of G-force applied when the sled came to a stop, Murphy supplied a set of sensors that were attached to the harness holding Stapp to the sled. Each sensor had two ways to be con-nected, only one of which would pro-vide results.

    The team sent a chimpanzee on a test run after applying the sensors, but the data came back blank. Each sensor had been connected incorrectly. Its said that at about this time, Murphy made a comment along the lines of what was to be considered his law, blaming the technician that applied the sensors for the mishap.

    Apparently, Stapp thought Murphys observation was pretty astute and in a subsequent press conference, he com-mented that the research teams (rela-tively) good safety track record was due to their understanding of Murphys Law. Obviously no one had ever heard of this law so he elaborated by say-ing, Whatever can go wrong, will go wrong. And with that, Murphys Law was born.

    IS MURPHYS LAWREALLY TRUE?

    The universality of Murphys Law in part relies on the fact that, in a situa-tion such as the sensor one the Mur-phy encountered, there is a chance that something will go wrong. And often that chance is as likely as having ev-erything go right.

    Some people have even gone as far as to attempt to predict or explain Murphys Law in actual defi nitive terms. For ex-ample, Joel Pel, a biological engineer at the University of British Columbia decided he wanted to predict the occur-rence of Murphys Law, so he created a mathematical formula that did just that. We wont bore you with the details of the formula but rest assured, his for-mula works.

    Murphys Law is also said to be sup-ported by the natural law of entropy. This particular law, known as the sec-ond law of thermodynamics, the study of how energy changes from one form to another, states the following: In the
