    Default It's Murphy's Law

    If I turn up for tea with my good jersey on, I'm certain to spill something down it.

    If I get changed and wear my old jersey I don't spill anything down it.

    That fellow Murphy has a lot to answer for.

    Your SWMBO is kind to you for letting you blame Murphy.

    My SWMBO tells me I'm a mucky old coot who is showing indications of advanced senility.

    Maybe she's right?

    I no longer have crumpets for breakfast before going to work for that reason.

    I've always liked a good bit of crumpet.

    But I can't see what that has to do with my dilemma.

    Crumpets in the weekend with t-shirt on = no spillage.
    Crumpets during the week with work shirt on - jam and butter everywhere.

    Speaking of optimism, anyone noticed the forum has been up without issue for quite some time now?

    Fixed at last, or have I just jinxed it commenting....

    This talk of crumpets bring us to another undeniable but controversial paradox!

    Crumpets, when dropped ALWAYS lands butter side down. Cats when dropped upside down ALWAYS land on their feet.

    If you tie a buttered crumpet to a cats back, then drop the cat upside down would they not hit the ground, but stop just above the floor and slowly rotate?

    Have I just invented perpetual motion?
