John Howell is back with another great Top Ten list. This one is the Top Ten Things Not to do According to Murphy’s Law. Check out the original post on his blog.

This naturally brought up the idea of mistakes and how often they are repeated down through history. Then the thought turned to specific laws governing natural phenomena.
