The tallest person in the audience will sit down in front of you only after it is too late for you to find another seat. The one piece that the plant forgot to ship is the one that supports 75 percent of the balance of the shipment. The grocery bag that breaks is the one with the eggs. These are just a few classic cases of Murphy's Law, which states that if anything can go wrong, it will. The "Murphy's Law 2004 Calendar features a different witty and cynical observation like these each day and has been published for more than twenty years. "Murphy"--and his friends--share their skeptical views on everything from modern technology to social etiquette to relationships and more. For example, there's Witten's Law: Whenever you cut your fingernails, you will find a need for them an hour later. And Bell's Theorem: When a body is immersed in water, the telephone rings. And finally, the Diner's Dilemma: A clean tie attracts the soup of the day. Even the biggest pessimists will chortle while reading this calendar.
