"Anything that can go wrong, will go wrong."

Why does this always seem to be the case?

You forget your umbrella - random rainstorm
You're late - car won't start
Favorite show on - cable won't work

We've all had moments like this before. Does the universe have a sense of humor?

The Fool: We tend to recognize more things going wrong because we are in a bad mood from the first incident,. I used to think it meaned hat things happens in three.
"The bud disappears when the blossom breaks through, and we might say that the former is refuted by the latter; in the same way when the fruit comes, the blossom may be explained to be a false form of the plant's existence, for the fruit appears as its true nature in place of the blossom. These stages are not merely differentiated; they supplant one another as being incompatible with one another." G. W. F. HEGEL

A quote best suited for a trip to MARS. Or any other complex endeavor.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Negativity bias combined with confirmation bias? Maybe if we were biased towards positive things we would find the same. Dno, that's my 2 cents.
Things that make me happy!
