Murphy's Law, Now With Equations

19.05.55 - Mark

Some scientists have devised a formula to calculate Murphy's Law you know anything that can go wrong will go wrong, and if it can go wrong at a worse time it will. Well the formula is:

((U+C+I) x (10-S))/20 x A x 1/(1-sin(F/10))

Where urgency (U), complexity (C), importance (I), skill (S) and frequency (F), and each given a score between one and nine. A sixth, aggravation (A), was set at 0.7 by the experts after their poll.

Personally I haven't tried to punch in numbers yet, but it looks cool.

So... what they're saying is...

If your incompetent, in a hurry, and aggravated while doing something complex and important, something is more likely to go wrong.

HOLY FUCKING SHIT!!! Scientists are so smart!

yeah, but now you have a formula to throw at inept, simple minded teachers and administrators when they ask you why you feel that they're screwing up your education. That fact alone should boggle the hell out of them making it nice and simple to stage a rebellion (or rather a second rebellion since MAHS could care less about the student body unless some sort of lawsuit or police needs to be adverted) ;)
