There are two commonly known facts:
1st: cats always land on their feets
2nd: buttered toast always lands on the buttered side
But now the question:
What happens if you place a buttered toast with the buttered side up on a cat and drop them both?
I mean the cat will try to land on their feet, but at the same time the toast must land on the buttered side, which is not possible if the cat lands on their feet.
I thought about the problem for some time and I think the cat will never touch the ground. I am just not sure if it will stay statical hoovering some centimeters above the ground, or will rotate with increasing speed, leading to incineration of the cat and toast, because of air resistance. The latter possibility, combined with the stupidity of my cat, prevents me from testing it.
