"Anything that can go wrong, will?"...My question is, will there ever come a day when it's not true LOL
Murphy had so many laws (none of which had/have any real factual basis of course), but I think he hit the nail on the head in most cases. I believe that, for as long as human beings are in existence, his laws will remain a part of our culture, as it allows us to (at times) look upon our own misfortunes in a more lighthearted manner...

Getting through something traumatic or embarrassing is so much easier when you know that everyone else on the planet has or will (at some stage) go through the same thing. It's also comforting to believe that the universe is against everybody else too - not just you...
It's a strange concept, I know, but Human Beings like to feel a part of something bigger than themselves (most of the time) whether it be the latest fashion trend, politics, Religion, victory or tragedy, and Murphy's Law(s) is certainly no exception to that rule...
For those who have the same mentality as Murphy it does. For those who are optimists and have a positive attitude towards any aspect in life, it does not.
I must say some of the laws proved their veridicity in my life

When we say we have an angel watching over us, what does that mean? What do you expect the angel does for you? I believe in angels-as many people do, and I have my own beliefs in who my angel is and what he is watching out for-but I would like to know what other people’s perception of an angel is?
