I have lost 1500 bucks in the past two weeks in cash and about three photocopies of my notes all of them amounting to about 100 bucks..

No i m not complaining...but still it would feel nice if Murphy(of the law fame) wouldnt always target me...i have had a really crappy week with everything going against me...

It all began on sept 15 when our dept symposium was scheduled...on sept 13 i was cutting a piece of thermocol with a blade at 12 in the night and i cut my finger deep with that rusted blade and the wound started bleeding like crazy and with absolutely no first aid or medical facilities i just tied my hand with a rag to stem the bleeding and had to go get a tetanus the next day
i proved one murphy's law
  • You will cut ur hand in the worst possible way only when there is a lot of work to do and when there are no medical facilities

And then all of us had worked our butt off for the symposium and were under extreme pressure to perform because we as final yrs were conducting the sympoium and as luck would have it, it rained on the night of sept 14th at first i just dint believe it..all our high profile decoration of the campus was getting washed away right in front of our eyes...the great database which had been developed by a couple of guys for online registration couldnt be used and we had to switch over to manual expected it did not rain on the days when the other departments had their symposiums...i have a strong feeling that had i been in any other dept it would have rained then...if there is one person who truly and wholly loves me it is Murphy..he might as well have written his laws for me...
i proved two laws

  • If there is a worse time for something to go wrong, it will happen then.
  • Things get worse under pressure.

Then came sunday and i had to give my mock CAT...i was talking animatedly to my friend and suddenly someone was said "u can start writing" and i furiously started working out without reading the instructions and i mistook all the two marks for one marks and vice versa..and for those two and a half hours i was so thrilled that i knew so many two marks..i should have known it was too good to be true..and i totally messed up my CAT..not that i would have done any better otherwise but my scores reached an all time new low because of this..

i proved yet another law

  • If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

After that i broke the news that i had lost 1500 bucks at home and i got jacked bigtime with ususal dialogues like "u do not realise how hard amma and appa work to give u such luxuries in life..u r careless,u r irresponsible......" and many more things but after about 25 seconds i just stopped mom then spoke for about half an hour about how responsible she was when she was young only because she cared about her parents

i proved another law

  • The effectiveness of a telephone conversation is in inverse proportion to the time spent on it.

And then there was a test on monday and since i had done miserably in the first two tests i actually sat and prepared for it...(a shitty paper called Environemntal scinece and engineering)..and i came on monday confident of passing and they told me that the test had been postponed
i proved another law

  • The probability of a test being held is inversely proportional to ur preparation for the test

There were many small things which happened that week but seriously i dont have the patience to go into all that..
everything seemed to go wrong all at once proving yet another law

Quantization Revision of Murphy's Laws Everything goes wrong all at once.
and finally
You never run out of things that can go wrong.

Sigh!!!Murphy i really appreciate ur concern for me but i really wouldnt mind if u shifted ur affections to someone else for a little while..i really wouldnt!!!

Murphy's Iterative Law:
If you take a Murphy's law into consideration and plan accordingly, Murphy's law ceases to function.

And remember, the law is iterative. So Murphy's Iterative Law applies to itself.

1. He is Omnipresent, Omniscient and all-powerful.
2. He loves all His children equally.

he might be omnipresent and omniscient but he is definitely partial when it come to me...he just loves me so much!!:(:(
