Murphy's Laws

  • Murphy's Law : If something can go wrong, it will.
  • Murphy's Second Law : If something can't go wrong, it still will.
  • Corollary to Murphy's Law : If something can go wrong in multiple possible ways, it will go wrong in the worst possible way.
  • Silverman's Law : If Murphy's Law can go wrong, it will.

Election Time

Election time in my university. Lucky that the elections are at a Hostel level alone (max stake of 400 people), else it could be nastier.

Had read somewhere before that, there is no such thing as a rational buyer, so goes the case with election candidates trying to sell themselves to the constituency, their cant be rational voters, just issues touching the emotional strings of the voters.

In an election scenario, accusing someone of Nepotism is like buying a lottery ticket, losing money and crying "It ain't fair, I do not deserve it".

For I always thought that Politics is nothing different from Nepotism, albeit legalized and at a much grander scale.
