Knowing Which Side Your Bread Is Buttered On

After years of wondering — and lord knows how many cushy government grants that didn’t solve the problem — we finally have a solution to keeping your toast from landing on the floor butter side down. Thanks to Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of the TV show Mythbusters, it turns out that if you press the knife firmly and quickly as you spread, a dip is created on the toast which affects the way it falls. In tests using this method, the toast landed butter-side up 29 times out of 50. Now if they can only figure out why hot dogs come 10 to a package and buns come eight to a package we’ll all be able to sleep much better at night.
