@Work 2010.11.15 (Review of 2008.05.30 edition)
Greetings! It's a real thrill to be starting a new week with you today!

About two and a half years ago, we sent our readers an @Work edition on MURPHY'S LAW, an often-mentioned and much-maligned “law of nature”. Well, we're going to revisit that edition today and use it as a springboard for the rest of the week. We hope you enjoy our latest WordMaster series!
Today's Lesson
 
MURPHY'S LAW   マーフィーの法則
Explanation
Murphy's Law is a rule of nature (often not really believed in) that says that if anything can go wrong, it will.
Murphy's Law とは、うまくいかない可能性があることは、うまくいかない、という(大抵あまり信じられていない)自然界の法則のことです。

b:  Well, that's Murphy's Law for you.
2 I don't think there's much truth in Murphy's Law. I take a more positive view of life.

b:  Perfect! I guess Murphy's Law took a holiday for a few days.
