Laws Of Aerodamnics

Aerodamnics — how the air moves and the way it interacts with objects that are in the air according to Murphy.

1. A piece of buttered bread usually falls to the floor with the buttered side down.
Corollary: The probability of this happening is directly related to the price of the carpet.

2. juice squirting from a grapefruit tends to go directly into one’s eyes.

3. A wind always blows out your last match when lighting a campfire.

4. When the plane you are on is late, the plane you want to transfer to is on time.

5. Any tool, when dropped, will roll into the least accessible corner of the workshop.
Corollary: On the way to the corner, any dropped tool will first and always strike your toes.

6. No matter which direction you start, it’s always against the wind coming back.

7. The most powerful force in the world is that of a Frisbee disc straining to land under a car, just beyond reach. (The technical term for this force is “car suck”.)

8. The strength of the turbulence is directly proportional to the temperature of your coffee.

9. When the weight of the paperwork equals the weight of the plane, the plane will fly.

10. If you want a track team to win the high jump you find one person who can jump seven feet, not seven people who can jump one foot.

While the Laws of Aerodamnics are corollaries of Murphy’s Law, the word “aerodamnics” is coined by yours truly, Edmark Law!

    Clever! The corollaries added for #1 and #5 especially added to the humor of the buttered toast and dropped tool “aerodamnics.” (The cat+buttered toast photo made me smile.)

    1) A lost object is always found in the last place you looked for it…
    2) The amount of coins found behind the sofa cushion will always be one less than the number needed to get the laundry done.
    3) Supervisors will only evaluate you on the one day of the year you have arrived unprepared.
