The Laws of Construction

Corollary 42a to Murphy's Law of Construction

When exercising a new skill, say, re-grouting a tiled bathroom, the correct technique will always be found when 4/5 of the job has been done.

Corollary 42b

The correct technique will never be the one they tell you on the box.

The technique on the box is usually written by somebody that's never actually done the task, and is trying to recreate the process using nothing but their own imagination and badly remembered snippets of information overheard in the staff lunch room.
