Murphy's Law

Unread postby hebner20 » Fri Sep 20, 2013 4:08 pm

I think I stumbled upon the graphical depiction of Murphy’s Law. At first I was trying to draw a graph of the need for a loan and the availability or ease of obtaining one. Then I thought I would depict the need for a bathroom and the distance from one and they were the same graph. I realize I was drawing an inverse relationship. Upon realizing that I also determined that in essence I had captured the graphical depiction of Murphy’s Law.


The graph has 3 data points, A, B and C. With the explanation above, let’s have some fun with A, B and C.

Q: If we are talking about a Bank Loan and you are at point C what is your name?
A: Warren Buffett

Q: You are at point C and you just ate a steak dinner how many great restaurants are nearby?
A: Thousands

Q: You are starving and find yourself at point A, what do you see?
A: Nothing for miles but a vending machine that sells stale cheese crackers and only accepts Canadian coins and you are in Mexico.

Q: You are running late and are at point A, what is the “something”?
A: Green traffic lights.

Q: Does point B exist? (Moderate need moderate availability)
A: No

:cheers:

Because only a burrito loving emu fucker would say something like that.

That's right, DU has sex with large flightless birds.

So if you ever see a man-bird driving a crappy "muscle car", you'll be all like "boy that CDT sure was right and we should all buy him presents and stuff because he's so cool".

I've said it before, all I really want is cattle prod with a solid gold handle.

Gift cards are fine too.

Dude you have a spider for a pet, a spider that you need to keep in the dark and can't interact with or allow guests to handle.

Bang up job selecting a pet!

Fuck you might as well get a Komoda Dragon.

Actually I have 8 tarantulas.

Is owning giant spiders any different than owning fish? You can't interact or handle them. They don't stay in the dark 24/7. Most of them aren't hiders. They're display animals. And if any guest in my home wants to try and handle them, have at it.

We also have a dog and a very crazy cat.

Fish are homos.

Komoda Dragons and Piranha are where it's at...

Well it's "Komodo" Dragon.....

And Piranha can be hard to keep because they can be highly cannibalistic, especially during a feeding session.

You should google "Mantis Shrimp" and then buy one. They have the most advanced eyes on Earth.

They are actually shrimp-like crustaceans. So your extensive knowledge excludes invertebrate arthropods, which makes me question your tarantula knowledge.

Also, it takes a mantis shrimp less than 8 milliseconds to strike, which is about 50 times faster than the blink of a human eye.

My neighbor is a mantis shrimp.

Yes. They're stomapods. If I had a told to DU go Google "Stomapod" he would probably end up with Stormfront newsletters coming to his door.

The man is not smart.

The pistol shrimp is the only known animal with a faster movement...
