Why The Toast Always Lands Butter-Side Down


Murphy’s Law is the most important law in science: “Whatever CAN go wrong WILL go wrong”. Why does your queue go slowest? Why do buses go round in threes? Why DOES that toast always land butter-side down? There are many weirdnesses to be explained, and the explanations show that the world is often counter-intuitive. Science has the task of sorting out reality from illusion. The book of the same name is published by Constable & Robinson. (Ages 11 and up).
