If Anything Can go Wrong, Pass it on to Someone Else! = Florentin’s Laws =

Authors: F. Smarandache

Being paradoxist in nature, Florentin’s Laws are especially deviations, modifications, generalizations, contra-sayings, parodies, or mixtures of the previous Murphy’s Laws and Peter’s Laws. And also of aphorisms, proverbs, known citations, clichés, scientific results (from physics, mathematics, philosophy, ...), etc. Alternatively, collations of opposite ideas - gathered from folklore, from ads, from literature, from familiar speech. For example, Murphy’s law “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong” which in Peter’s law is stated as: “If anything can go wrong, Fix It!” becomes in Florentin’s law, through deviation: “If anything can go wrong, pass it on to someone else!” in a Machiavelli way, as a mixture of pessimism / optimism and laugh! In the above example, while Murphy’s law output is negative and Peter’s law output is positive, Florentin’s law output is indeterminate [perversity] as in neutrosophic logic (i. e. the problem has not be solved, but passed to another person!... it’s a trickery (deception, cunning, dodge, swindle, caper, subterfuge). Each Florentin's Law should include: negative (pessimism) and positive (optimism) attributes, while its conclusion should be moderate – often trickery bended with humor.
