The difference between.
"Sod's Law" and "Murphey's Law"

  STREETWORK 18:52 19 Apr 2008

Sods Law = It was not ment to happen

Murphys Law = It was sods law that it was going to happen anyway...

If you have ever stripped down engines and rebuilt them without dropping your nuts! in the works you are lucky.
No it was not meant to happen "Sods Law"
but it usually did " Murphys Law"

So what's that got to do with: which side down your toast lands when you drop it?

Sods law - that you dropped it

Murphy's law - it lands butter side down.

That's wot STREETWORK said
dust it of and put the marmalade on just the same thats Noels Law??

  Noels 19:21 19 Apr 2008

That should have read "OFF"
Sod's Law?

Noels. Bit painful dropping your nuts in the works isn't it?

  Noels 19:32 19 Apr 2008

Because you had to go and get replacements from the stores which meant wating for a "Long Stand"
as well as your new nuts.
You are quite right.

Don't forget the elbow grease to keep the nuts from rusting.

In the engineering world Murphy's Law states that if there is a 1 in 10 billion billion chance of something being fitted the wrong way, upside down, inside out etc. someone, someday, will manage to do it.

Sod's Law says that out of 10,000 engineers I will be the one selected to sort out the mess.

The best Murphy's Law story is an apocryphal one dating back to the war. A particular Lancaster was know to fly like the proverbial brick outhouse.

A succession of pilots, some very experienced and senior, complained about it but the engineers could find nothing wrong, until a major strip down inspection.

It was then found that the elevator, the bit that makes it go up and down, had been fitted upside down, a feat hitherto thought impossible.
