    Murphy's Law of Lesser Known Facts:
    1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.
    3. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
    4. Those who live by the sword get shot by those who don't.
    5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
    6. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.
    7. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, five or six at a time, on a hill, in the fog
    8. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.
    9. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day drinking beer.
    10. Flashlight: A case for holding dead batteries.
    12. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.
    13. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.
    14. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

    Murphy's combat operations laws (first 20)
    1. Friendly fire - isn't.
    2. Recoilless rifles - aren't.
    3. Suppressive fires - won't.
    4. Your weapon was made by the lowest bidder..
    5. A sucking chest wound is Nature's way of telling you to slow down.
    6. If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.
    7. Try to look unimportant; the enemy may be low on ammo and not want to waste a bullet on you.
    8. If at first you don't succeed, call in an air strike.
    9. If you are forward of your position, your artillery will fall short.
    10. Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.
    11. Never go to bed with anyone crazier than yourself.
    12. Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
    13. If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
    14. The enemy diversion you're ignoring is their main attack.
    15. The enemy invariably attacks on two occasions:
    a. When they're ready.
    b. When you're not.
    16. No OPLAN ever survives initial contact.
    17. There is no such thing as a perfect plan.
    18. Five second fuses always burn three seconds.
    19. There is no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole.
    20. A retreating enemy is probably just falling back and regrouping.

    My favorite Murphy's law on combat is:

    "Incoming fire has the right of way."
