    The reason toast lands on the butter side is because it's heavier. It's like when you take a penny and put on one side so it falls on that side (my brother did that to me when I was little as a trick)

    I haven't studied Murphy's law... but it sounds like complete bullshit.

    Why would something go wrong if it can go wrong?

    Example: I'm making a dam in a random country. The only way it could go wrong would be setbacks, or a war or whatever. If there could be a war, there is no certainty it will happen.

    i'm not entirely sure that the weight of the butter is significant enough to affect that, but it works for me.

    It's kind of a joke, but it does seem to happen quite often. Does it not?

    Murphy's Law isn't an ACTUAL law of physics. It's more like something that is generally accepted to be true. it's like saying "women get really nasty on their periods". it doesn't apply to every woman, but it does to a fair amount.

    That is correct. and because you rarely have the buttered side face down on the table. its most likely to do one rotation landing on the buttered side when brushed off a table.

    However if a buttered piece of toast is dropped from a neutral angle and a greater height, it will most likely land on the un-buttered side due to the dip caused from buttering the bread forming an air pocket.


    side note:
    Murphys law is only accepted as true by pessimists.

    Murphy's Law is a satircal piece of work. It is basically a number of laws devised from a cynical point of view for the sake of humor.

    For example: "Everything good in life is either, illegal, immoral, or fattening"

    That is Murphy's Law for you.

    That's actually very clever.
