    Is he the guy who said, “Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong”? (Murphy’s Law), because he doesn’t look ANYTHING like Eddie Murphy, (Beverly Hills Cop, Trading places, etc)

      That’s him. Apparently someone installed an aircraft part incorrectly and ruined a whole experiment.

      We must always count on people screwing things up.

    Murphy’s Law

      Murphy’s Law.

      Also, it seems there is another law dubbed Yhprum’s Law which states that anything that can work will work. (Being the reverse of Murphy, though I’m not sure how much I believe this one.)

    Murphy’s law…

      That’s it. Naturally it’s the kind of cynicism (or is it realism) that we would expect from an engineer.
