LAW OF THE PERVERSITY OF NATURE:
- You cannot successfully determine beforehand which side of the bread to butter
LAW OF SELECTIVE GRAVITY:
- An object will fall so as to do the most damage.
Jenning’s Corollary: The chance of the bread falling with the buttered side down is directly proportional to the cost of the carpet.
Klipstein’s Corollary: The most delicate component will be the one to drop.
