Totally off topic -- but for those of you who speak French, this is really funny...

Very funny, Steven. I was going to major in feline aerodynamics at one point.......

Are those cats bred and buttered in France?

In English:
The experiment shows in an irrefutable way that when a slice of bread and butter fall from a certain height, it is always the buttered side which touches the ground. The only change from the energy point of view is a reduction in the potential energy, since the state of slice of bread remains unchanged. That the slice of bread falls with the side buttered downwards or to the top, the quantity of lost potential energy is the same one. But if it falls the side buttered to the bottom, the entropy increases in a notable way. Indeed, by touching the ground, butter is not any more confined with slice of bread but is spread on the ground, which increases the entropy of the system. To respect the laws of thermodynamics, one can thus conclude that a slice of bread and butter will always try to fall with the side buttered downwards. This recall on the principles which govern the famous law of Slice of bread and butter makes it possible to better include/understand the research undertaken by the physicists in the field of the antigravity. Indeed, another law of physics stipulates that if you launch a cat by the window, and this whatever the height, it will always fall down on its legs. The question which emerges then is: that it occurs if one attaches a slice of bread and butter on the back of a cat (with the apparent buttered side, obviously) before launching it by the window. Is what the cat falls down on its legs? Is what the buttered side touches the ground? If you are far too lazy concluding the experiment yourself, some logical deductions should enable you to arrive at the result. The laws of Slice of bread and butter stipulate in a final way that butter must touch the ground whereas the principles of cat-like aerodynamics strictly refute the possibility for the cat of landing on the back. If the assembly of the cat and slice of bread were to land, nature would not have any means of solving this paradox. It is for that that it does not fall. It is in this manner that the secrecy of the antigravity was discovered. A Cat-Slice of bread, if it is launched of a window, will rise with a suitable height which will be the point of balance of the forces of cat-like reversal and butter attraction. This point of balance can carefully be modulated by removing a little butter to make it go up or by removing some of the legs of the cat to reduce it. This technique besides is already largely used by the species which undertook interstellar explorations, and the noise heard near the UFO is not other than the humming of thousands of cats. But this system is not without danger, because for little that the cat succeeds in eating slice of bread, the catastrophe is inevitable! The cats fall down on their legs but survive only time to receive on the head the gigantic spaceships carried to the red by atmospheric friction and full with extraterrestrial in anger. To find a solution with this delicate problem, several teams of researchers work like a navvy to synthesize a butter which the cats do not like. The peanut butter seems very promising, but the experiments are always in hand. Astonishing, not? Unknown author

Chris, thanks for the translation, but clicking the "english" button on the website could have been faster... [Big Grin]

It's just not as funny translated into English as it is in French....
