   After a correction has turned out to be a mistake, it will be impossible to fit the original quantity back into the equation
   Bugs don't happen because you do something.  Bugs just are.
   Cats are Murphy's way of saying "Nice furniture!"
   Confidence is the feeling you have before you understand the problem
   Demonstrations always crash--the probability of them crashing goes up exponentially with the number of people watching
   The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits
   For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism
   Fortunately, the second-to-last bug has been fixed
   A good slogan can stop thought for fifty years.  A great slogan can stop it forever.
   High tech means breaks down next week, cutting edge means breaks down this afternoon
   If a system is of sufficient complexity, it will be written before it's designed, implemented before it's tested, and obsolete before it's debugged
   If anything is used to its full potential, it will break
   Interchangeable parts aren't
   Knowing Murphy's Law won't help either
   The most dangerous thing in a combat zone is an officer with a map
   The MS-DOS way: If it's broke, fix it.  The Unix way: If it ain't broke, don't touch it.  Maintainer's Motto: If we can't fix it, it ain't broke.
   Murphy was an optimist!
   Murphy's Law is recursive--washing your car to make it rain doesn't work either
   Murphy's Law only fails when you try to demonstrate it
   Never forget that your weapon is made by the lowest bidder
   Never share your foxhole with someone braver than you are
   Never test for an error condition you don't know how to handle
   No battle plan ever survives contact with the enemy
   The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire
   The problem with the easy way out is that it's already been mined
   Progress at best consists of replacing errors with more subtle errors
   There are no accidents--only plans other people don't tell you about
   There is not now and never will be a language in which it is the least bit difficult to write bad programs
   What could possibly go wrong?
   What did *I* ever do to Murphy?
   Whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed
   Whatever you drop will hit your toes on the way to the corner
   When you've secured the area, don't forget to tell the enemy
   You always find things in the first place you look, but not the first time you look there
   You can't tell beforehand which side of the bread you should butter
   And on the eighth day, God said, "Ok, Murphy, you take over"
   Rule 1) Is it plugged in?  Rule 2) No, really. Is it plugged in? 3) Seriously, get on the floor and check. Is it really plugged in?   
   I have always wished that my computer would be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish has come true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.   
   Murphy never sleeps, but that's no reason to poke him with a sharp stick
   Rule 1) Is it plugged in?  Rule 2) No, really. Is it plugged in? 3) Seriously, get on the floor and check. Is it really plugged in? Rule 4) Now, what about the switch on the back?
   Why do the people in the back of the elevator always want to get out first?
   Murphy Happens
   Why do the people at the back of the elevator always want to get out first?
   Welcome to Murphy's world
   Good ol' Murphy, always with us
   Bad things happen to good people because bad things don't like good people
