The following is a list of other laws I find are true, but are not necessarily useful.
- Plugging your ears with your fingers works dramatically well to dampen the sound of loud sirens, but not at all effective for loud snores in the middle of the night.
- Traveling with toddlers and senior citizens is like playing a not so addicting adventure game of locating and getting to a restroom every twenty minutes.
- When ordering a subway sandwich, saying the items you do not want such as “No olives or pepperocini, please” tends to give you exactly the undesired toppings. This gives credence to the instructions on how to use the law of attraction and to the notion that we should focus on what we do want rather than what we don’t want.
- In the private sector, good work is rewarded with bigger bonuses and in the government good work is rewarded with more work as if government workers need more incentive to do as little as possible.
