      Why is that?

      Why is it among the host of emoticons you are looking at the one you want is always the last one you find?

      That is a direct result of Murphy's Law, or, to be more specific, of its "The time required to find a necessary or desired item is directly proportional to your need for it" corollary. Murphy was obviously an absolute bastard for making publicly known such a depressing truth about the universe; however, I suppose he deserves props for discovering one of its most universal laws. <-- that emoticon was, incidentally, #37

      I have obtained a resentment toward this Murphy character!
      He follows me every where I go.
