11.10.2004 08:45 - Shit Officially Proven To Happen When You Least Expect It.
Murphy's law - "Shit happens when you least expect it" - has now taken on the slightly less catchy expression of
Probability = ((U+C+I) x (10-S))/20 x A x 1/(1-sin(F/10))
U = Urgency,
I = Importance,
S = Skill,
F = Frequency,
A = Annoyance (typically rated at 0.7)
This has apparently been researched by British Gas, who usually know when Murphy's Law has been tripped, as they are met with a loud bang when it does.
