Default RV Law

No matter how hard you try before getting under the instument panel, you will have to empty your bladder.

But first, you will get an immobilizing cramp.

The odds of irreparably bungling a part or assembly can be stated as 1:SCT(1+F)/P, where S = volumetric size of the part/assembly, C is the cost, T is the time invested so far, F is a measure of your fatigue, and P is the percentage left to completion.

F is the only factor that can be controlled and varies by person and situation, being a scale of 100 and maxing X minutes after starting work. Personal observation has shown X to range from 10 minutes to 3 hours, with 70 minutes being average. Indications of Fmax can include: searching five minutes for the part/tool that is on the worktable in plain sight ready to be used, reheating your cold coffee for the third time before taking a sip, not being able to find a pair of safety glasses despite having several kept around the shop, and so forth. It can also be measured by the rude word ratio: when the ratio of rude words to normal speech approaches 1:1, Fmax is near. If the ratio over any 2 minute period reaches 5:1 (such as after dropping a bucking bar on your sandal-clad foot), Fmax has been reached.

Default The law of remembering parts to order

You will always think of something else you needed from Spruce (or Van's, or Stein, or whomever) right after you click on "send order."
