Laws of the Universe: Gallagher's Law

Gallagher's Law: If a demonstration can go wrong so that the first three rows of the audience will be splattered with something, it will.

Note that the amount it will go wrong is proportional to how difficult it will be to get out the substance, how much it stains, and how many audience members are wearing dry-clean only clothing.
