MURPHY’S LAW | Draw My Life ‘Anything that can go wrong will go wrong’


You have probably gone through this a thousand
times: the one day you leave your house without an umbrella, it pours with rain – you buy
something in the vending machine and it gets stucked – every time you drop a slice of toast,
it always falls with the butter-side down. You probably think it’s a conspiracy in
the universe against you, but nope, most of these misfortunes can be explained through
the Murphys Law, which says that “anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. We are not the first ones to realize that
these things happen. The famous scottish poet Robert Burns wrote in 1786 that The best laid
schemes o’ mice an’ men often go awry. In 1884 the novelist James Payn presented the
example of the bread and butter for the first time. But it wasnt until 1949 that Murphy’s law
or laws appeared as such thanks to the aerospace engineer Edward Aloýsius Murphy, after whom
they were named. Edward worked for the army in the US in big projects such as the Apolo
or the Apache Helicopter, developing security systems. He carried out a project for the US Air Force
to calculate the g-force (which measures the effect of acceleration due to gravity) a person
can tolerate when stopping abruptly. After several attempts, Edward modified the design
but didnt get any results. He inspected carefully the connections of the cables set by his assistant.
There were two possible ways of establishing the connection between the sensors and it
turned out they were ALL wrong. Not even one was right! So Murphy said: If there is a wrong way to
do something, then someone will do it. Little by little, the expression Murphy’s Law became
famous, and what had been born as a principle of security to take into account in engineering,
turned out to be a famous version of the inevitabílity of disasters. But… how much is it true when we are talking
about the Murphy’s laws? It all sounds like coincidence or superstition, however, tho
it might seem weird, science is behind many of these pessimistic statements. In 1996, the scientist Robery A. J. Matthews,
after several experiments, proved that the Murphy’s Laws are not about bad luck, but
about pure physics. He got an IG Nobel Prize for this. Going back to the famous slice of
toast that always falls with the butter side down, he demonstrated, based on the mechanics
of a rigid solid and the rotation speed, that for a slice of bread to rotate completely
and not end up smashed on the floor, the table should be more than 2’5 meters tall. Unfortunately,
Ikea doesnt sell any tables this high, it wouldnt be practical for human beings. Another Murphy’s Law is related to the negativity
bias and selective memory. We tend to remember bad things that happened to us and consider
them more important. If something goes wrong once, it’s gonna be stuck in our heads,
more than the other thousand times that actually went right. This is something inherent to
our human condition and our survival instinct. Matthews also talked about another foundation,
the illúsory correlation. According to it, when we are in a traffic jam, we always have
the feeling of being in the slowest lane. This happens because we spend more time looking
at other cars going passed us than looking at ourselves going passed others. Another reason he gives is statistics and
logic. If we get to a place where there are two lines, probably the one going slower will
have more people and there are bigger chances that we’ll be in that line. If there are
4 lines and we choose one, there is a 75% probability of one of the other lines being
faster. Also, if we lose a sock it’s more likely that, the next sock we lose is from
a different pair – because other complete pairs are the ones we are gonna be using.
Murphy’s Laws have become famous in order to explain negative incidents in our daily
lives that happen accidentally – to justify how jinxed we are or why the Universe is against
us… But truth is, if we investigate, almost all of these principles have an obvious reason,
as it has been proved throughout the years!!! Tiktakers, leave a comment telling us about
your experiences with the Murphy’s Laws!

Clarke and Dawe – The Government You Ordered Has Been Delayed. Should Be Here Tuesday.


Barnaby Joyce thanks for your time Good to see you Bryan An inconclusive election. What are the lessons
that come out of this do you think? I think it’s obvious we need to listen a
great deal more Who do you need to listen to I beg your pardon? Are you negotiating with the independents? We are yes. We do little else How’s that going? Well it’s…… No. It’s going quite well.
No. It’s hope…. You have good days and bad days Good way to think of it. There will be good
days, of course there will. Bound to be. What went wrong, do you think? A lot of people are just grumpy. If the gate’s
open and the weather’s no good, blame the government’s fault. Th internet doesn’t
work properly, blame the government Whose fault is it of the internet doesn’t
work properly? Bad example. If the budget’s a shocker,
your kids can’t afford houses, there’s no
hospital or education funding, blame the government And whose fault is it really? You’re missing the point a wee bit here
Bryan. I think a lot of people don’t understand what you can do in government and what you
can’t do Yes, I suppose your difficulty here is that
you’re leading the junior party in a coalition government Tell me about it. I’ve just spend a fortnight
dodging fruit Tell me, how does the coalition work? This is what I have to keep explaining to
people. The coalition is a natural alliance of
two political groups who have a great deal in common So what aren’t they one political group? They are So why are they two groups? There aren’t. It’s just that there are
two parties in the one group But how does it work in practice. Let’s
say you’re the Deputy Prime Minister. You’re the leader of the National Party. Let’s
say you want to increase the diesel rebate Yes. Good example. IN that case I’d go and
say ‘Malcolm, We want to increase the diesel rebate’ And then what happens? Then I explain to Malcolm what diesel is And what does he say? He says ‘How nice to see you Barnaby. We
must do this more often. Thanks for that. We’ll have a look at it’ And then what happens Then he goes and talks to all these other
plonkers from Woollahra and Scott Harrison and so on Scott Morrison I think Yes. Him. And they have a think about it And then what Good question. We’ve never got up to that
next bit yet. THat’s as far as we’ve ever got Yes. That puts you in a difficult position
I suppose It does How do you get on with Bob Katter? Very well. Bob’s a good bloke. (ring ring)
This’ll be him now Bob. How are they hanging? What are you doing Saturday? Want to run a
country? I’ll talk to him, don’t worry about it. I’ll tell him what diesel is.
Leave him to me.

Meet The Legendary Creator of Famous Daredevil Foe Typhoid Mary | Women of Marvel


[MUSIC PLAYING] Hey, guys.
I’m Judy. And I’m Sana. And we’re here from
the Women of Marvel. And we are back with a special
80th anniversary episode, and we’re excited to be
joined by Ann Nocenti. Hi. Hello. We’re so excited
to have Ann here. Ann is a very well known
editor, writer, filmmaker. You’ve done so much
across the board. But you’re such a
big part of Marvel’s history, the legacy of Marvel
in the ’80s in particular. And there was one
character, which is a personal favorite
of mine, that you created named Typhoid Mary. Uh oh. That is exactly
what you should say. What’s she doing in the room? Tell us about Typhoid
Mary and how she came to be. ANN NOCENTI: Well,
I think that a hero is only as good as its villain. When John Romita, Jr., and
I were working on Daredevil, we wanted to give Daredevil
a really good villain. He had a couple personalities. You know, he was a
lawyer and a vigilante, so if he didn’t solve
it in the courts, he solved it in the streets. He wore a devil suit. He was a lapsed Catholic. We felt like he was
full of contradictions, so give him a female that
had a lot of different sides. And so we created a
character where there would be an innocent Mary
who would seduce Matt Murdock, while
the wild Typhoid would seduce Daredevil’s darker side. It’s comics. Hey, you can have
lots of personalities. You already have an ego and
an alter ego and a mask. Why not have, like, five more? The conversation that we
had with you on the podcast really showcased all of
your different personalities as well, some of the darker side
of Ann Nocenti, which you guys should definitely check
out because there’s a great conversation. We learned a lot more about
the history of Marvel, all of the amazing things
Ann is doing right now. So Ann, thanks for joining us. And you guys, go check it out. This is Marvel. Your universe. Thank you. [MUSIC PLAYING]

Death in a Can: Australia’s Euthanasia Loophole – VICE INTL (Australia)


Hi, I’m Ben Anderson from Vice-New York-office our friends are the vice Australia office And the company that sells products that help people end their own lives this is death, in a can. I can run you through how you actually use it if you like . the whole process [alright] the way the process works Connect the regulator and then with the plastic bag you put the hose that connects that to the bag? Inside the bag and stick it to the inside of the bag You put the bag on your head first of all and let it fill up By switching it on it’ll fill up. It’s full of nitrogen No, oxygen, then you breathe out totally get rid of every bit of gas in your lungs best you can Hold your breath a minute Pull this down and take the biggest breath you can and you’re swapping the gas in your lungs from air To nitrogen within fractions of a second you faint you faint straight away then you’re just in a fainted state , continue to breathe quite easily the bag just Expands and contracts and the gas is flowing into the bag, but you’re in a 0% Environment and you’ll die in about 3 or 4 minutes after that Max dog is a company we set up it really is a way to facilitate the distribution of these Nitrogen cylinders Which can be used for brewing which is why we call ourself max dog brewing but of course the main use for these cylinders is For people who want to have access to a peaceful and reliable death at the time of their choosing Hello I’m Betty from exit In my last piece of film I showed you how balloon helium gas could be used to provide a peaceful death This time I want to show you a new system. That’s now available One that has several advantages over the previous method The movement of Nitrogen as a gas to dispense beer with has become more and more of an issue over the last Few years I’ve been to a number of beer festivals around the world where they have nitrogen nights. We’ve got this idea that instead of using One of the traditional means for peaceful death was to use a gas, and I’ve traditionally people are using helium Why not use nitrogen and so that’s what we started to do so we set up a company to make [sure] that people have access to nitrogen. It’s very peaceful, and it’s totally legal and it has one other unique phenomena a unique characteristic and that is ,that it’s totally undetectable. I’ve seen several autopsy reports, and they’ve all come back cause undetermined Undetermined or inconclusive is how they describe it well? I’m going to ask yourself a question How does it do that if I’m in a room by [myself], and I’ve decided to use this [Mac’s] dog brewing I have to kill myself and I have a quick quick a glass of IPA And then I put the hood on and get on with it somebody’s going to find my body sooner or later with it with Paraphernalia on my head and it’s an empty cylinder next to me and it’s quite clear, then what happened So what we’re talking about really is where someone actually removes? The evidence the gas bottles and other stuff after the event for the sake of effecting this Undetectable death we’ve involved not one person But at least two and that’s in fact why I reported it to the medical board. I thought well You know it seems to me to be quite irresponsible to do that. Yes. I’m 63 years old. I’ve got a Chronic lymphocytic Leukemia, and I’m in the last stages of that disease and I’ve also got breast cancer. Well, I’m very sad but naturally, I’m very anxious about the end and Would like [to] have total control over The end of my life, I’d like to die at home. I’d like to die with my family Supporting me and I’d like to be able to say [goodbye] to them but unfortunately that’s not possible because of the way the law is they could be under suspicion [for] assisting me to suicide, so Unfortunately, I’m going to have to not include my family in my death [and] that’s very makes me very bitter suicide is not a crime But anyone who might attempt and might help you [end] your life That’s assist you advise or counsel you Can suffer serious criminal Sanction in fact two states of Australia still have a possible penalty of life imprisonment? For assisting someone to take that legal step of ending their life, and this is an anomaly. There’s no other example in law Where assisting someone to do something which is legal Attracts any penalty leave alone a penalty of such savagery if I came along and gave you the drugs and said here If you take these drugs you will die that [would] be assisting Giving people Mac’s dog nitrogen and saying you can use this and go and brew yourself some beer if you want to Or you can use it if you want to end your life Takes it right on the Edge because what we’re saying is that this can be used in that way But it can be used in other ways and because we’re not telling people to do this is effectively our defense] No one can tell you how long you’ve got but I know that I won’t live for much longer if I’m lucky enough to be home. I’ll have Probably a nice meal. I’ll probably have a drink of some Baileys Irish cream and I’ll settle myself into my [favourite] chair with my cats and I’ll peacefully go to sleep I I Think [sometimes] I do get painted as a bit of a ogre in the suggestion [that] I want people [to] live [on] indefinitely and you know at all costs and regardless of the pain that’s just not the case and Certainly that’s not the case in palliative services . palliative care is defined by two elements : that one is Reducing + relieving pain and one is to neither prolong nor shorten life So when we are talking about a natural situation, and we could care people get good advice as well So they get to weigh their choices maybe they do want to get another round of chemotherapy because of x y zed or maybe that’s enough so it’s not as if You know getting that kind of support is the end of choice. It’s not it’s actually an opening-up of choice Knowing you’ve got something in the cupboard That will give you a peaceful reliable death is immensely Sustaining in the context of serious illness people and we’ve know a number [of] them and to wake up every day with their serious cancer And say you know it’s dreadful But [if] it gets too bad, then I’ve [just] got to go to the cupboard get up my nitrogen cylinder And I can have a peaceful death and what that does having that knowledge having that ability is That it gives them the courage to keep on and I think it’s entirely consistent with harm minimization as a good medical principle Look, I’m not afraid of dying, but I am I am afraid of being forced to endure suffering and the indignity of being of being Totally dependent on other people while I’m dying and for that reason I [think] it’s my , should be my choice to actually Say enough s enough, and I want out Simple as that. It’s just a choice You can buy these cylinders we’ve been selling them all over Australia increasingly We’re selling them around the world once you’ve got them. You keep them forever infinite shelf life , it is not a prohibited substance Provided you’re comfortable of the process it will work well you

The Head of a Satanic Temple Explains Satanism


We do not sacrifice children. The foundation of Satanism
is built upon the self and carrying out
the devil’s work. Hail Satan! Hail Satan! Hail Satan! Hail Satan! Hi! My name is Zeke Apollyon
and I am the chapter head for the Satanic Temple,
London and UK. I think what attracted me most
to Satanism, I think how preposterous a lot of stuff that was coming from
people who call themselves Christians. These people are extremists,
they’re religious extremists. That use Christianity to
kind of further their extremism. Some of these people have
blood on their hands, and so I figured if they could do horrible
things in the name of Jesus then I could do wonderful things
in the name of Satan. It’s so liberating. It is so liberating. I don’t think I’ve ever felt as in
my own skin as I do as a Satanist because, I mean part of it is looking
at like ugly sides of yourself and being able to sort of
reconcile that and looking at
ugly sides of humanity. No. No. I don’t want to catch anything and I’m pretty sure
other people don’t either. People get in touch with us
and we just have a conversation. A lot of times what people want
is community, a lot of people feel like outsiders and so they come to us
because they’re looking for people
that are accepting. They do not come around anymore. They don’t come around anymore. They came over one time when we
were having a big ritual and they must have seen it
on my face or something ’cause I opened the door
to come out to get something and they were walking up the path and I was just like, no! And they just
turned around and left. And I haven’t seen them since. We still live in a time
when people who are satanists have to live incognito? But I think in terms of
misconceptions about Satanists I think people think that we
sacrifice babies, that we are engaged
in some kind of like underground sex trafficking. I’ve definitely met some babies
that I haven’t really gotten on with very well, but I’ve never
actually killed one. There’s a little girl
in the window right there. Satanism, it’s been a philosophy or a way of life for people
for a very long time. For me, Satanism is really about
not letting myself off the hook. And I believe for me that being a
Satanist is about trying to continually advocate for people
especially people who aren’t able to advocate for themselves. You could definitely go much worse
than to use those things as your way to
kind of move forward. Every day! In fact somebody is
probably right now, asking us to put them
in touch with the devil. People ask for riches,
they ask if we can allow them access to the Illuminati. Some of the weirdest interactions are people who like
send us satanic prayers. People will sometimes ask us to
pass on messages to the devil. And I’m like, we’re not the
devils answering service. I wish! Satanism is a love affair
with the self. Actually, I think one of the things
that the Satanic Temple wants to do is actually sponsor an orgy. We do, but like we would be there as
people who would fold the towels and we would make sure that there
was enough condoms and lube. And we would provide sex education. A lot of us are trained. Some of us are medics. And what we would do is facilitate what would be like a safe, consensual, group sex practice for people
and it would benefit something. I think it would be great if
Satanists went on Love Island. That would be amazing. I totally would. I would turn that party out.

Q&A With Grey for 500,000 Subscribers


Hello Internet, Here we are: 500,000 subscribers — well,
actually… by the time I finished this video it’s a bit more than that — but who knew
that after I promised to do a Q&A that the pope would resign? Anyway… When I uploaded my first explanation video
just over two years ago now, I would never have expented this: over half a million subscribers
and 16 videos with over a million views. Who knew rapidly spoken educational videos could
be so popular? Thank you, Internet. Now, as promised — though slighly behind
schedule — it’s time to answer some of your questions. ## “What’s your educational background?” Rodrigo,
Campo Grande, Brazil I went to school in New York where I earned
two college degrees, one in physics and one in sociology. After that I moved to London
and earned a PGCE in Science Education, and became a qualified physics teacher in England. ## “How long does it take to create a video?”
Tracey, Ohio I’ve tracked my time to get an accurate answer
and every minute of final video you see takes me between 10 and 20 hours of writing and
animating to make. So a typical 5 minute video is 50 to 100 hours of work. While that’s a lot, it doesn’t include the
research phase which is difficult to quantify — some of the videos I’ve made I’d been collecting
notes on for more than a year before starting. ## “What was you favourite video make?” Brittany
P, UK The 2012 video was the most fun by far — mainly
because I didn’t have to do a lot of complicated research and I got to complain about things
I don’t like. ## “What change would you make to the education
system?” Lumbajack Gangsta, Austin, TX Instead of grouping kids by age, I’d group
try grouping them by ability instead. The idea that just because a kid is 14-years-old
they’re ready for trigonometry is weird. No other part of human society oranizes itself
this way and for good reason: it artificially slows down the best and brightest. ## “What is do you think should be in the
curriculum but isn’t?” Jamaal, Arizona Computer programming. I was kind of shocked
and horrified when I started teaching in the UK to discover there were no real computer
programming lessons. Of course, there are only so many classes
in the day, and everyone wants their pet subject taught in schools, so the equally important
question is what to get rid of to make room for computer programming and, without the
slightest hesitation I’d ditch the foreign languages classes — after all, computer programming
is getting us closer and closer to a universal translator anyway. ## “What do you do when you receive pennies?”
johnjac, Owasso I die a little inside thinking about how political
systems can distribute tiny costs across large numbers of people to the benefit of a few. ## “What’s your favorite element?” Rasmus,
Denmark I don’t have a favorite but I’m irrationaly
fond of Tungsten mainly because my wedding ring is made out of it. ## “What’s the story behind your logo?” Joshua
B. It’s basically a personal flag for my love
of science and technology. When I first started this channel, I thought
that I would make videos mostly about those two things, but for various reasons, that
hasn’t happened yet. And besides, it’s not like there’s a shortage
of good science channels on YouTube. By the way, If you really like the logo, you
can get it on T-Shirts and now coffee mugs — which is particularly appropriate as coffee
is the fuel that without which these videos could not be made. ## “What do you do in your free time?” Sam
L, Higginsville, MO I like to horseback ride through the mountains. Nah, it’s mostly just reddit. Speaking of which… ## “Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized
horses or 1 horse-sized duck?” techtakular, Alex, va One horse-sized duck. The cube-squared law
means the legs of a horse-sized duck probably wouldn’t be structually sound. Easy fight. ## “Are there going to be more “politics in
the animal kingdom” videos?” Oli Yes, I’m sorry, I know this playlist is unfinished
and, if any of the videos videos I’ve ever made can be said to be important, it’s these. I promise at least one more about the single
transferable vote, but I don’t make any promises about when that will happen. ## “Do you think third parties will ever gain
ground in the United States?” Kerl, Florida No. The problem isn’t politics or voter apathy,
it’s the system that creates the politics and voter apathy. The US election system is pretty much the
worst in the civilized world — often voting for a 3rd party isn’t just a waste it’s also
a vote *against* your own best interests. 3rd parties really can’t thrive under those
conditions. ## “What’s one technology you wish to see
before you die?” zigonick, MO, USA Immortality technology. ## Where do you get your ideas? It’s been my experience that creative projects
are self-sustaining. The more you write, the more things you want to write about and the
more you program the more programming ideas you have. For me each video spawns more videos. The
daylight saving one, for example, originally contained spots for information about longitude
and time zones and the seasons that got cut but will probably become their own videos
at some point. Also, I listen to a monstrous number of audiobooks
and podcasts. If you’re interested, you can see some of my favorites here. These help
me keep in touch with the wider world and expose me to ideas and information that I
would not have come across on my own. ## “If you could live at any time in history
when would it be?” Bonnie, Scotland I wouldn’t. Allow me to summarieze all of human existance
with this single graph. ## “What’s the best way be successful on YouTube?”
Joe Kowalski, 44074 Make videos people want to watch. I’m not trying to be glib here but when asked
this question I see many YouTubers talk about the importance of upload schedules and managing
your social media and colloborations, and my experience says that’s completely backwards. If your videos aren’t interesting, no one
will care that you upload them regularly. And twitter followers don’t get you views,
views get you twitter followers and people who want to collaborate with you. I know it’s not very helpful advice, but it’s
the most truthful advice I can give. ## “What is the most interesting fact you’ve
ever been told.” Stu1278, England It’s difficult to pick just one from an entire
lifetime, but last year Veritasium visited me in London and walked me thorugh the process
by which trees get water from their roots to their leaves. That sounds really boring but it was one of
the most mind-blowing conversations I’ve had in a long time. ## “How often do you engage with profesionals
while you research?” theLarom, Washington, DC For me, being confused and frustrated with
a topic is a vital part of figuring out how to explain it to others so I’d say 95% of
research I do on my own. If I’m really out of my depth on a topic — like
the debt video and the pope video — I try very hard to find an expert to look over the
final draft of my script but time constraints and finding trustworthy experts is sometimes
a bit difficult. ## “What is your favorite internal organ?”
trint99, DFW, TX The Brain — because it’s the one that’s me. ## “Is there any part of science do you want
to be proven wrong?” Jrod N, Massacusetts Yes, the current interpretations of the ultimate
fate of The Universe all make me sad. ## “Can you answer 10 questions in under 30
seconds?” YouReadMeName ## 1: “What is your favorite scientific study
ever published?” Marie, Reno, NV Unskilled Are Unaware: Further Explorations
of (Absent) Self-Insight Among the Incompetent Link in the description. ## 2: “Hogwarts house?” Zeinoun Awad, Lebanon Ravenclaw. (I’d hope) ## 3: “Celsius or Fahrenheit?” Kubez Fahrenheit. ##4: Kirk or Picard Picard. ## 5: “Do you wear glasses?” Spartacus McFancy
Pants Uh, yeah. ## 6: “Favorite empire?” Caleb Glickman, USA The second one. Those monks were awesome. ## 7: “How can a country be totally self sufficient
— as in no imports or exports?” Amberjack1973 Simple, resort to a midevil level of technology. ## 8: “Favourite sport?” soccernhlfan, Canada No. ## 9: “Should science play a bigger role in
politics?” Dip, London, UK What, you mean the method by which we determine
truth? Yeah, I think it should. ## 10: “Can you answer 10 questions in under
30 seconds?” YouReadMeName Apparently. Alright, thanks to everyone who submitted
questions — it’s been fun, Internet.

Ben Platt Teases Season 2 of ‘The Politician’ | THR News


– That is why I’m proud to
introduce my running mate today. Infinity Jackson. (cheering) – She already has a 80% approval rating. – If you binged The Politician on Netflix, you know that Ben Platt
stars as Payton Hobart, a privileged teenager determined to win the student body elections
at his high school, you know, as a first step
on his way to becoming the President of the United States. The Tony Award winner spoke
to The Hollywood Reporter about taking on the part
and what fans can expect from season two. Platt, of course, headlined
Dear Evan Hansen on Broadway before starring in the
Ryan Murphy Netflix series. As for what it was like to transition from the stage to the
small screen, Platt said, “A lot of it is in the
practicality of showing up to work “and having someone
four feet away from you “and pointing a camera in your face, “as opposed to walking into a
large room with lots of people “sitting and listening to you. “And particularly in this show, “the writing is so verbose and heightened, “it’s so reminiscent of the theater “that I felt very much at home.” (upbeat music) – See, gentlemen, I’m gonna be President of the United States. I’m merely stating a fact,
I will be president someday. I’m warning you, do not
screw with my dream. – [Tiffany] Platt’s costars
include Gwyneth Paltrow and Jessica Lange. The actor who was also a talented vocalist had plenty of musical
moments in season one, but will there be more in season two? He revealed, “I’ve only read
the first couple of episodes, “but so far, season two isn’t musical. “And if it is, it’ll be
a very similar situation “where only when Payton
would organically be singing “in his life would we try
to put a song in there.” – It’s so hard to have to
try so hard all the time. – You’re gonna change the world, Payton. – How do you know? – For the full interview with Ben Platt, head to THR.com. Until next time, for The
Hollywood Reporter News, I’m Tiffany Taylor. (whooshing)
