Murphy's Law

Murphy's Law states, as it were, that if something can go wrong it will go wrong. While a prima facie investigation of life might reveal this Law to be true, it lacks a certain amount of detail that can render its theory rather tame when compared to the reality. For instance, at any given time, there is a veritable multitude of ways in which things can go wrong, often in varying degrees of severity. Given that failure is the epistemological reality of human existence, one might amend Murphy's Law to state that, given a way in which something can go wrong, it will always go wrong in the worst possible way.
