Murphy's Law applied in medecine !

A math teacher wanted to demonstrate the laws of probability to their students. It spread 30 slices of bread with peanut butter and threw in the air to see. 29 landed with the buttered side on the ground and the thirtieth remained glued to the ceiling.
This is the demonstration of Murphy's law: "if something should happen, it will go through and at the worst possible time and the worst way"

ça ne peut pas être si vraie. ça serai catastrophique que tout doit se produire pour le pire. " la loi de l'emmerdement maximal"!!!
il y a une autre vision qui ne consiste pas à considérer la loi de Murphy comme vraie mais comme une règle de conception. les équipements conçus doivent être mis à l'épreuve des plus pires accidents pouvants arrivés ou des plus stupides utilisations!! mais heureusement ça n'arrive que très rarement!!!
