Physicist: The mathematical statement of Murphy’s Law, as used in scientific communities, is tremendously complex. The short answer is: yes, Murphy’s Law is real. We can clearly see that Murphy’s law is both real, and unfairly applied to people colloquially known as “clumsy”. Many people known to be “unlucky” or “followed by a black cloud of misfortune” are the sad victims of the fact that Murphy’s Law is demonstrably unfair. So, Murphy’s Law is certainly very real, and can even be measured qualitatively.
