FWD: Sod's Law as it is known in the UK)

I hope you don't think this posting should be struck off as irrelevant as so many of these seem to apply to Syncro repairs and ownership (particularly the 2nd last).
Still could be my last posting as I am off later today for just over a week on the Great Victorian Bike Ride and am worried I might have covered too much mileage with my current motor and drive shafts.

1. Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee.

3.
Law of Probability
- The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of your act.

4.
Law of Random Numbers - If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal and someone always answers.

6.

They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early, never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.

Oliver's Law of Public Speaking - A closed mouth gathers no feet.

18.
Wilson's Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy - As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it.

19.
Doctors' Law
-
If you don't feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by the time you get there you'll feel better.. But don't make an appointment, and you'll stay sick.

Good luck Roger and i hope the weather stays dry.

Love this post Roger.

All items seem to have proven themselves extremely true over my experience anyway.

Enjoy the bike riding - be careful of the chafing!.
