Misfortune Monday: It Goes On

Life is like a crayon box, and each color represents one of the many flavors of chaos. It's hard to predict what the next thing will be. Maybe you'll get a call that your home is flooded. Maybe you'll wake up to find that a steamroller has parked on your car. Maybe you'll just drop a cake. We learn to tolerate the misfortunes of life because we just kind of have to. So there's that.

Misfortune Monday: Of Course Things Are Like This

Life is a journey. That means there are ups and downs, twists and turns, mistakes, failures, errors and blunders. Expecting everything to go perfectly all the time is just a recipe for disappointment, especially when the only certainty is that life is uncertain. That's not to say we should just expect things to go terribly all the time. Far from it. We just need to realize that windows will break, toilets will explode, trees will fall, and that's just part of the merciless nature of the world.

Unfortunate Moments of Failure and Chaos

As much as we'd like the forces of darkness and confusion to leave us alone, mistakes, failures, errors and blunders still find their way into our lives. It's not a graceful life; one of dropped phones and exploded pipes, but it is the one we are given. All there is to do is take it in stride and sometimes expect that the world is merciless.

Misfortune Monday: Of Course It's Like This

Live life for a little bit and it becomes pretty clear that the world is merciless. Pipes will explode, lasagnas will fall, and keys will get lost in the sewer. While these aspects of life are no fun, it's at least comforting to know that everyone experiences them. Batten down the hatches and put on your seatbelt because life is uncertain.

In a sterling example of crap spatial awareness, these guys paid no attention to height specs and tried to park a U-Haul in a low-ceilinged parking garage. What started off as a "whoopsie" quickly turned into a "nononononononono" as they tried to turn around and burst a sprinkler pipe overhead. The moment of panic as that suspect brown water gets let loose is a thing of beauty.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos is Unavoidable

They say that life never gives you more than you can handle, but isn't that a bit of a logical fallacy? We're sort of built to withstand punishment, so just seeing how much we're willing to take is an exercise in futility. Like, of course people "handle" the merciless world around them if you count "handling" as just standing there and taking it. Sounds like some survivorship bias. Whatever chaos occurs, the world keeps on turnin'.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos is Unavoidable

We do our best to avoid accidents, but the world makes a pretty clear point that chaos is inevitable. Pipes will explode, trees will fall on cars, and glass tables will shatter unexpectedly. The world is merciless, but luckily bad things happen to just about everyone, so we can all gripe in frustration over the stupid things that happen to us.

Misfortune Monday: The World is Merciless

We need no more proof that misfortune abounds and life is uncertain, but life just keeps giving us more evidence every day. Cars roll into ditches, lasagnas get flung, and dogs try to eat bees. There's no stopping the misfortune that can happen in our lives, and if one thing is for sure, life has an incredible way of making up new ways for things to go wrong.

Misfortune Monday: Life Is Uncertain

For every small thing that can go right, there's about a hundred things that can go wrong. Trampolines get blown away, septic tanks explode, cars drive into lakes, and frisbees get caught in trees like way up there. We know that the world is unpredictable but that doesn't stop us from continuing to try to get things right. That said, bad things just keep happening.

Unwanted Moments of Failure and Chaos

As we trudge through life, we're met with almost too many flavors of chaos. It seems like anything can go wrong down to the last minute detail. Ovens can shatter, cans of paint can explode all over your car, and pipes can freeze. A crowbar can go through your tire, a tree can fall into your kitchen, and your dog can eat a bee. The moments of failure and chaos never end, but luckily they don't happen all at once.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos Has Many Names

Any resident of this planet is well aware that a lot can go wrong. Spaghettis will be dropped onto carpets. Dump trucks will explode. Frisbees will get stuck on roofs. At a certain point, all we can do is sit back and take in these many flavors of chaos while reminding ourselves that at least it doesn't happen to us every day.

Misfortune Monday: A Lot Can Go Wrong

We can't stop every bad thing from happening in our lives. We can do our best to mitigate errors of our own fault, but sometimes, for no good reason, there's a snake in your toilet and your tires explode. Sometimes we have to face that the world is unpredictable. And in that world, boy oh boy are there many flavors of chaos.

Failures, Mistakes, Messes and Errors

Life has a lot of good things going for it, but it wouldn't be life if there weren't also the potential for huge and stupid mistakes. We try to do our best, but mistakes, failures, errors and blunders are bound to get in the way at some point. It could be a frisbee through the windshield or the dropping of a perfect lasagna. There are just too many flavors of chaos to know what to expect.

Misfortune Monday: The Many Flavors of Chaos

It's not hard to come up with ways that things could go wrong. The world is unpredictable. You could find a dangerous animal somewhere you'd rather not want to. You could get totally covered in paint during an accident. You could spill a whole bunch of eggs or a boulder could crush your car. As many flavors of failure and chaos there seem to be, life just keeps inventing more.

Misfortune Monday: Uneventful Days Aren't Bad Days

Sometimes the days you don't remember are the best ones. Not because anything particularly good happened, but because a strange and specific mishap did not happen. You can never be too sure of what mess large or small will be just over the horizon, but if one thing is for sure, it's that misfortune puts things in perspective.
