Laws that Parliament Should Pass: No’s. 1 & 2

While passing from one though to another I remembered the Law of Sod, or, as we call it in England, Sod’s Law.

In my mind it means: "If something bad is going to happen it will!"

So, if you are late for work and running for a bus you are bound to fall over or loose a shoe. It’s Sod’s Law.

But, I thought, what does the internet have to say about it? First stop wikipedia and it doesn’t disappoint...
Sod’s Law is similar to, but broader than, Murphy's law. It includes the idea that "anything that can go wrong, will", for example toast will always land butter side down, as well as other components.

Trust me to forget about Murphy’s Law...
"…a popular adage in Western culture, which broadly states that things will go wrong in any given situation in which error is possible. "If there's more than one way to do a job, and one of those ways will result in disaster, then somebody will do it that way.""

Understanding these Laws could go some way to understanding people from the British Isles. If you are still confused then this cartoon might help:
