Murphy's law states that there's no such thing as an aethist in a foxhole. For you Army men, is this true because it's gonna 6 years until I'm done Officer School and Royal Military College so I can find out.

Don't blame Murphy, he was too smart for that. Murphy's law says, "If anything can go wrong, it will".

When in a truly dangerous situation the last thing any sane person would do is to throw his lot in with an invisible friend that has a success rate with miracles of about 0.001%

Ha!... If Murphy were smart, he wouldn't be in that damn foxhole.

Yeah, you have to remember...that statement isn't an argument against atheists. It's an argument against foxholes.

And with the exception of on CAP (and trade depending, your Phase 3 and 4), you won't be in a trench (Canadians dig slit trenches, not foxholes...and yes, there is a difference) because we've stopped using them in combat because the CF is too mobile a force to dig in (besides, why dig in when you can hole up in a LAV?)

The more important and relevant Murphy's Law of Combat should be:
- the KISS Principle (Keep It Simply, Stupid!)
- the important things are always simple
- the simple things are always difficult
- a battle plan never survives the first 30 seconds of enemy contact
- never share a foxhole with someone braver than you

How about "tracers point both ways" and "if the enemy is in range, so are you"!
