Toast failling from hand

Jelly toast on floor

Research reported in TechSac about the physics behind toast falling butterside down:

The cause:

•  The buttered side is up after we butter the toast.

•  Kitchen counters are waist-high

•  When buttered toast falls from that height, it rotates half a rotation on its way to the floor.

•  So it lands butterside down.


•  Use a higher counter when buttering toast.

•  Or toast smaller slices of bread, small enough to rotate a full rotation before hitting the floor.
