If it makes no sense, blame Gumperson’s Law
By Byron McNutt

EVERYONE IS familiar with the Murphy family. They gave the rest of us a book of laws we commonly refer to as Murphy’s Laws. Well, over the years, my family always considered the Murphy family, who lived just down the road from us, as “the lucky ones.”
You may also be familiar with Dr. Gumperson. He is famous for Gumperson’s Law. It accounts for the fact that you can throw a burnt match out the window of your car while going 60 mph and start a forest fire, while you can go through two boxes of matches and an entire edition of the News-Review without being able to start a fire under the dry logs in your fireplace.
