Snark’s law of the internet: some people just don’t get it.
You forget to allow for Einstein’s* Law: any post relating to any scientific law will be incorrect or contain at least one inaccurate attribution.
*Or O’Reilly’s Law. Whatever. Google it.
I first read it as Your ‘in America’ bot.
In America, bank robs you.
Can you walk down the street feeling your nuts without feeling your nuts?
Muphry’s Law seems to predate Skitt’s Law by 7 years.
It’s a bot. Mine? Not.
Is this a timeslip? The last tweet was 2013.
I’ve seen many of these start to smoke:
ETA: Supposed to be a potentiometer (POT for short. Not sure why it’s showing up as a link and not a picture)
Broken link; can’t see it.
Showing up as a picture for me.
If it’s smoking you’re putting too much voltage through it.
I can see it now.
Yeah, this seems altogether too forgiving to attribute it to Muphry’s Law. It does seem to be a more a general consequence of the fact that people saying this sort of thing unironically are, well, ignorant idiots.
How sad - we need it now more than ever, too.
Far too much understanding of the initial tweets and nuanced references for a bot.
It took me several tries before I got this.
Is it weird that I pronounce are and our totally differently? Maybe “our soul” sounds like a dirty word in Dudley Moore’s accent, but in mine, it just sounds like “our soul”, and the dirty word in question doesn’t even exist.
I think that whether “our” sounds more like “are” or “hour” is a regionalism.
I’ve pronounced it both ways, even though I think that “are” and “hour” sound very little alike.
