Законы Мерфи для военной службы....

Знаю, что баян, но решил перечитать, и очередной раз поразился мудростью изложенного. Ссылка на полный вариант тут. Перевод - тут.

Murphy's war law
Friendly fire - isn't.
Recoilless rifles - aren't.
Suppressive fires - won't.
You are not Superman; Marines and fighter pilots take note.
A sucking chest wound is Nature's way of telling you to slow down.
If it's stupid but it works, it isn't stupid.
If at first you don't succeed, call in an air strike.
If you are forward of your position, your artillery will fall short.
Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.
Never go to bed with anyone crazier than yourself.
Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder.
If your attack is going really well, it's an ambush.
There is no such thing as a perfect plan.
Five second fuses always burn three seconds.
No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection.
No inspection ready unit has ever passed combat.
If the enemy is within range, so are you.
Napalm is an area support weapon.
Mines are equal opportunity weapons.
Sniper's motto: reach out and touch someone.
Killing for peace is like screwing for virginity.
The one item you need is always in short supply.
Interchangeable parts aren't.
When in doubt, empty your magazine.
Combat will occur on the ground between two adjoining maps.
