Sod's Law.

    The news has been dominated by the policewomen in Norfolk who tripped over the curb whilst investigating a possible burglary. She claims she injured herself so she is suing the garage owner. Pathetic is the most moderate language that springs to mind. If you want an easy life don't join the police force.
    I wouldn't normally be interested except that it reinforced a theory of mine that the world is ruled, not by a mysterious god on high, but simply by that mysterious force, known as Sod's Law over here and Murphy's Law by our American cousins.
Most of you will know the axiom 'Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.' Its a perfectly NATURAL tendency for things to go wrong wherever possible. Plus things don't just go wrong, they do so at the most annoying moments. (or when you least need it.) There are mathematical formulas for all this. It's all a bit clever for me, but if you are interested, look up NULL HYPOTHESIS; very scientific, very intriguing.
    When I was a small child I 'borrowed' a bike. I was going to take it back, honest! Only I wasn't very good at riding it as I wasn't used to riding one and I fell off. I broke my arm; definitely Sod's Law. I wasn't as big as the other kids. So I tried extra hard to do what the other kids did. I swung from the cricket roller like they did; only I fell off and broke my arm; definitely Sod's Law. When I worked for F W Woolworths we were all young and daft lads together. We sent the empty lift back down with a matchstick in a buttonhole. Only the lift came off its runners and there was no-one in the lift to stop it. One very broken lift and five very scared, hard to find stockroom boys; definitely Sod's Law personified.
    No doubt the policewomen is after a 'payout'. Its a legal situation, involving money, money and more money. But note I mentioned the legal situation, and the law is a funny thing; not 'funny ha ha'.   IF, note IF her lawyer can get Sods Law incorporated, officially into the British Legal System she's laughing. Everything and anything from hence on will be attributed, officially to 'Sod's Law'. Look at the possibilities; look at the potential! (Falling over a curb, no problem, it was bound to be there.) This is the future, remember, you've read it here first. 
    Stick your head outside the door, step outside and wait for something, anything to happen. Life will never be the same again. Hurrah for Sod's Law to be made official; I can't wait.......

folk will sue anyone for anything nowadays, which is totally a waste of time for not only most people but also the courts, but what do I know?

I can't believe a police person would sue for a misstep with a curb. Very expensive police call. I wonder if they solved the burglary?

First of all I would like to say excellent blog! I
had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was curious to know how you center yourself and
clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing
my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it
just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out
how to begin. Any ideas or hints? Cheers!

It was good to hear that the police force was not best pleased with that female copper. I do sincerely hope she loses her case.

Star said...

Either there's a similar case in Italy, or that's the very case I just heard about a day or so, ago. Sheesh!

I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having
a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

I'm not very internet smart so I'm not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

I think that everything said was very reasonable. However, what about this?
what if you were to write a killer post title? I ain't suggesting your information isn't
good, but what if you added something that grabbed folk's attention? I mean "Sod's Law.

" is kinda boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they write article titles to grab viewers to open the links. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people interested about what you've got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little livelier.

Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a
paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Cheers!
