Curram / Offigan Law

Post by Howdy Doody Time »

Does anyone else fall foul of the Curram/Offigan Law of Cable Tie Arrangement, where the likelihood of removal within the hour is directly proportional to the length of the cable run?

I assume that Curram and Offigan are fairly closely related to Murphy and Sod?

Only indirectly. Murphy's law becomes effective when 'within the hour' is extended, which allows for several post cable tie activities to have obscured access to the cable run. All such obstacles will have to be removed to facilitate Curram Offigan.
