The Buttered Cat Paradox

I came across this image and thought it was a great comic and worth sharing. The full Wikipedia article can be seen here. It also links in with Dave Mattingly's question on why cat's are able to turn themselves midair so they land on their feet.

Cool. It's not animal abuse, but I've noticed that if I shake my cat, and hehe give him some "flying lessons", that he usually doesn't land on his feet. Maybe my cat is special. :D Finn Hulse · 3 years, 1 month ago

@Finn Hulse Not sure whether upvoting this comment will mean I think it is funny or I approve of throwing cats... Daniel Liu · 3 years, 1 month ago

For what it is worth, this is my favorite gif of a falling cat.
