What Is Murphy’s Law?
Murphy’s Law is a witticism which states that ‘anything that can possibly go wrong will go wrong’. The Law came into recognition at the Edward’s Air force Base at North Base in 1949. It was named after Captain Edward Murphy, who had been working on an Air Force Project MX981, which was designed to see the level of deceleration one can stand during an air crash. During a particular incident, after discovering a faulty wiring of transducer, Murphy cursed the technician responsible by saying “If there is any way to do it wrong, he will find it.”
The contractor’s project manager, who kept a list of all the laws, named this one as ‘Murphy’s Law’. Murphy hated when someone used his name for absurd theories of “Why does buttered bread always land butter-side down?” He was the victim of his own Law.
