The effect is called the 'Murphy Factor'. Its has been thought, by
leading specialist around the world, to be a subset of the basic laws
of Murphy.

The actual law states, "The statistical probability for successful
presentation of a concept or idea seeking general acceptance is
inversely proportional to the number of observers observing an
experiment or project".

Although not generally accepted as a fundamental law of nature by the
majority of scientific minds around the world, a growing number of
intellectual researchers have indicating that it should be. The
prospect of this law becoming an accepted standard in the scientific
community is growing.
