    Honestly I don’t believe in murphy’s law at all I believe we are in control of the outcome of all situations whether we realize it or not.

    Which is why this is filed under the Fun and Humor section. It’s not to be taken seriously but rather, designed to allow us to reflect about the perspectives of the helpless.

    It’s a lighthaerted and a tongue-in-cheek way of looking at our lives. A little entertainment and mini-satire to how life can be in general… for those who are not in control…
