Tell a man there are 300 billion stars in the universe and he'll believe you. Tell him a bench has wet paint on it and he'll have to touch it to be sure.

Murphy's Law:

Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
Corollary: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong at the worst possible time.
Quantization Revision of Murphy's Laws: Everything goes wrong all at once.

If nothing went wrong, you missed it and now it's worse.

In my family they would say "he don't know shit from shinola" I had to look it up.



Someone might be said not to know shit from Shinola if they display poor judgment or knowledge.

my Mom's equivalent was
