  1. The Law of the irreproduceable problem: A chronic problem (mechanical, code execution, etc) will be impossible to reproduce when an expert debugger is present.

  2. Wilson’s law is why when we find something that we like, a particular shoe, or a deoderant or toothpaste, we buy several of said item.

    Of course, talking cheap Walmart shoes here, not expensive Italian loafers or something.

  3. You forgot the law of RBH ROVING BLACK HOLEs

    Anything you drop that is important will disappear into a Roving Black Hole to remain hidden while you desperately need that item and only will reappear when you do not need it any more. These RBH exist in laundry rooms (the dryer did not that sock) garages (that special screw that only comes in un-obtanium from a special temple in Tibet) or with any kit from Ikea…..

    This phenomena is sporadic and short term and appear and disappear at random.

    • Ergo why I have a dozen coping saws, six or so framing squares and half a dozen chalk boxes.

  4. Hey Old NFO;

    The Socks disappearing is explainable…there is an “alpha” sock and a “Beta” sock, during the drying feature, the alpha sock eats the beta sock and farts the remainder out as lint, that is why your lint trap is full and you are missing a sock……See? easily explainable.

  5. It ia a little known fact that when the dryer spins up, under certain circumstances it creates an electromagnetic field that causes a small rift in the fabric of time and space. That is why one of a pair of socks sometimes disappears. Then, after you throw away the remaining sock because it has no mate, the missing one will eventually reappear because you caught up to it in time. Then you end up having to throw that one out because you threw away its mate.
