All hail the great Anti-Gravity Device! May your buttered toast always adorn your falling felines.

I don't get it. Cats always land on their feet. Toast always lands butter side up. In this case, if the cat lands on his feet the toast would be on his back, butter side up.

Maybe everyone else's toast lands butter side down. Not mine.

As an inventor, I will admit that not every invention works, but I can't let that stop me from trying.

You're so lucky! My toast always lands with condiment-side down.

I once read an honest-to-goodness scientific study on the "toast always lands butter-side down" adage. Basically, the extra weight on the buttered side of the toast does in fact cause it to land on that side more often (though not always, of course). The study examined the probability of the event as well as the reason behind it all, taking into account issues like the non-uniform density of the buttered toast, air resistance and what have you. A careful google search may be able to turn it up; I tried finding it quickly but was unsuccessful. =)

By the way, this isn't a new idea. It's all over the internet. Still, one of my favourite jokes.

They did it on Mythbusters, as well. They even designed a toast dropping machine. :-)

Mythbusters, as entertaining as it is, is not scientific. Not even in the slightest. XP

That IS where I got the idea from for mine.
