5 Buttered Toast Phenomenon

For real, the article talks detailed stuff explaining how a buttered toast seems to almost always land on its covered butter side

I should write a post on this.

6 Buttered Cat Paradox

Combining the buttered toast phenomenon and the cat. Cats tend to land on their feet on a long fall, buttered toast tends to do the opposite. Buttered toast is attached above the cats body. The main question is what happens if you drop a cat with buttered toast attached to it? This spawned some humorous speculations.

This is not weird at all
