Bill’s Law and Murphy’s Law and Sod’s Law

Ever heard of Murphy’s Law, or the UK version Sod’s Law? It says, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.” It is considered prudent to plan for Murphy’s Law when sailing. While thinking through Murphy’s Law, I began to think back to other Law’s … physics laws.

Having a BS degree in Physics, I spent an awful lot of time studying physical laws. One of the universal concepts you pick up is balance and how the universe tries to reach equilibrium. It does this by always having a set of opposing forces. Some pushing, some pulling. Positive charges and negative charges. In fact, what makes the universe so interesting is the imbalances and the efforts to become balanced.

When I thought about Murphy’s law, I began to consider it’s opposite. “Anything that can go right, will go right.” As the discoverer of this amazing postulate, I hereby name this Bill’s Law.

Going forward, you must look for and note the number of occurrences of Bill’s Law that happen every day. You will be surprised at the count! Happy Bill Law hunting!
