<span style='color:blue'>What would happen if you attach a buttered piece of bread, butter-side up to a cat's back? Even if you are too lazy (or justifiably terrified) to do the experiment yourself, you should be able to deduce the obvious result. The laws of butterology demand that the butter must hit the ground, and the equally strict laws of feline aerodynamics demand that the cat can not smash its furry back. If the combined construct were to land, nature would have no way to resolve this paradox and the universe as we know it would cease to exist. Therefore it simply does not fall.gulliver wrote:If cats always land on their feet and toast always lands butter side down, what would happen if they collided in mid-air?
Congrats, you have discovered the secret of antigravity! A buttered toast cat will, when released, fall to a height where the forces of cat-twisting and butter repulsion are in equilibrium. This equilibrium point can be modified by scraping off some of the butter, providing lift, or removing some of the cat's limbs, allowing descent.
Most of the more advanced species of the galaxy already use this principle to drive their starships while within a planetary system. The loud humming heard by most sighters of UFOs is, in fact, the purring of several hundred tabbies.</span>
