Gumperson's Law

Posted by Helge Skjeveland on December 02, 2008 at 11:12

A variation (more formal) of Murphy's Law is Gumperson's, to wit:
"The probability of something happening is inversely proportional to its desirability."

Who Gumperson was, I have no idea; but certainly the Law is the expression of a frequently to be lamented reality. Anyone heard of this before? You might want to add it to your archive.
