View Full Version : Butter Side Down

"When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped it always lands buttered side down. I propose to strap giant slabs of hot buttered toast to the back of a hundred tethered cats; the two opposing forces will cause the cats to hover, spinning inches above the ground. Using the giant buttered toast/cat array, a high-speed monorail could easily link New York with Chicago."

I am starting to get how you were feeling though, My husband decided he needed a shop building and we had to skip diving last weekend and only to get rained out! I told him we had to get it done this afternoon and tommorrow cause I am going diving this weekend!He must have believed me because every friend he has that isn't working is showing up today!:smiley2:

The whole premace of this argument is absurd as Myth Busters CLEARLY busted the notion (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ute-c-WAn7U) of bread always falling butter side down. On the other hand, I would gladly strap as many cats as you would like to the underside of a high speed train in the interests of science...

my little dog lands butter side down all the time, when he gets out the the back seat of the car it's a train wreck waiting to happen.

I am diving this weekend! woohoo!

Why would you put butter on your dog?

My mom feeds the "little fat man" buttered toast and bacon when I go visit them. So he has picked up "butter butt" and "bacon butt" for nicknames now. He is estatic to see her when we go visit :smiley36:

It is so much clearer with an illustration! That cat may resist gravity but it'll still puke.
