### Murphy’s law

1. 1.  “Anything that can go wrong , will go wrong.”  If there are two or more ways to do something, and one of those ways can result in a disaster, then someone will do it.  If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
2. 2.  We think that things should work-out in our favor, but when things go badly, we look for the reason.  Murphy’ law is much popular, As there are so many band exists which having this name.  So many books have written for the corollaries of murphy’s law. Even there are some movies with this name.
3. 3.  These are so many stories about murphy’s law History.  One is, it referred the sod’s law which states anything that can happen to a poor sod will.  Another says, In 1866 Augustus De Morgan wrote ‘Whatever can happen will happen’’. Which is a positive view of murphy’s law.
4. 4.  But, There was a real murphy. Captain Edward A. Murphy was an engineer in Air force.  Edward helped in the project called ‘Gee Whiz’.  In the first test the team failed and then Edward stated ‘If there are two ways to do something and one of those ways results in a disaster then he will do it in that way’.
5. 5.  After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to go to the rest room.  Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.  If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.
6. 6.  If you change queues or traffic lanes, the one you were in will always move faster than the one you are in now.  The probability of meeting someone you know increases dramatically when you are with someone you don't want to be seen with.  When you try to prove to someone that a machine won't work, it will.
7. 7.  Although Murphy's Law captures the pessimistic view of the world very well, it doesn't stand alone.  Some observer stated that Murphy was an optimist.  There are so many laws and principles are created since Murphy’s Like- Patton's Law - A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.
8. 8.  Our attraction to Murphy’s law is nothing but our sense of fatalism.  Fatalism says that the things that happen to us are unavoidable.  Fatalism contradict the concept freewill too.  Freewill – People make their own choices, so result will be their own.
9. 9.  So our connection with Murphy’s law is collision between freewill and fatalism.  Murphy’s law has two main aspects : I. It reveals our undeniable stupidity. Eg – I we given a chance to do something wrong half the time we will do so. II. It reveals our lack of control. Eg – If we stuck in the slowest lane of the traffic.
10. 10.  Things happens always but only noticed when become inconvenience. Eg – Aircraft in the sky.  Other forces also work when we consider the Murphy’s law. Eg- a piece of buttered bread will always land butter-side down. It is not because of Murphy’s law but because of gravity.
11. 11.  Murphy's Law doesn't prove anything. It doesn't even explain anything. It simply states that things will go wrong.  Murphy's Law reminds engineers, computer programmers and scientists of a simple truth - systems fail.  Murphy’s law aware us that always install the fail-safes.
12. 12.  Fail-safes are referred as ‘Idiot Proofs’.  Murphy’s law still has tendency to strike, even the care (Idiot Proofs) has been taken against the failure.  So, this leads us to compare murphy’s law with one more law called “Grave’s Law”. Which state that: "If you make something idiot-proof, the world will create a better idiot."
