    1.You are not superman.
    2.If its stupid but works, it isn't stupid.
    3.Don't look conspicuous, it draws fire.(This is why aircraft carriers are called,"Bomb Magnets".)
    4.When in doubt empty your magazine.
    5.Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than you are.
    6.Never forget that your weapon is made by the lowest bidder.
    7.If your attack is going realy well, it's a ambush.
    8.No plan survives the first contact intact.
    9.All five-second granade fuses will burn down in three seconds.
    10.Try to look unimportant because the bad guys may be low on ammo.
    11.If you are forward of your position, the artillery will fall short.
    12.The enemy diversion you are ignoring is the main attack.
    13.The important things are always simple.
    14.The simple things are always hard.
    15.The easy way is always mined.
    16.If you are shot every thing except enemy,you are in combat.
    17.When you have secured the area, don't forget to tell the enemy.
    18.Incomeing fire has the right of way.
    19.Friendly fire - isn't
    20.If the enemy is in range, "SO ARE YOU!!!!"
    21.No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection.
    22.Beer math is: two beers times 37 men = 49 cases.
    23.Body count math is: two guerillas plus one portable pluse two pigs = 37 enemy killed in action.
    24.Things that must be together to work, usually can't be shipped together.
    25.Raido's will fail as soon as you need fire support desperately.
    26.Anything you do can get you shot - including doing nothing.
    27.Tracers work both ways.
    28.The only thing more accurate than incomeing enemy fire is incomeing friendly fire.
    29.Make it tough for the enemy to get in and you cant get out.
    30.If you take more than your fair share of objectives, you will have more than your fair objectives to take.
    31.When both sides are convinced thay are about to lose, they are both right.
    32.Professional soldiers are predictable, but the world is full of amateurs.
    33.Murphy was a grunt.

    Ya i figured some one would have posted it by now. But when I looked about 5 pages back and I didnt see any so i figured we needed them.

    And besides I think I should be allowed to post that sence after all I have been playing INF a lot longer than you guys.

    You should look back further than 5 pages buddy. 5 pages is a few hours on this forum.

    But good try.

    I remember last time we did this we found over 150+ murphys laws. Hehe that was a few months ago and 5 pages back only goes 1 month back at the most I think.
