The Buttered Cat Paradox
If you drop a buttered piece of bread, it will fall on the floor
butter-side down. If a cat is dropped from a window or other high
and towering place, it will land on it's feet.

But what if you attach a buttered piece of bread, butter-side up to
a cat's back and toss them both out the window? Will the cat land on
it's feet? Or will the butter splat on the ground?

Even if you are too lazy to do the experiment yourself you should
be able to deduce the obvious result. The laws of butterology demand
that the butter must hit the ground, and the equally strict laws of
feline aerodynamics demand that the cat can not smash it's furry back.
If the combined construct were to land, nature would have no way to
resolve this paradox. Therefore it simply does not fall.

That's right, you have discovered the secret of antigravity! A
buttered cat will, when released, quickly move to a height where the
forces of cat-twisting and butter repulsion are in equilibrium. This
equilibrium point can be modified by scraping off some of the
butter, providing lift, or removing some of the cat's limbs, allowing
descent.

Most of the civilized species of the Universe already use this
principle to drive their ships while within a planetary system. The
loud humming heard by most sighters of UFOs is, in fact, the purring
of several hundred tabbies.

The one obvious danger is, of course, if the cats manage to eat
the bread off their backs they will instantly plummet. Of course the
cats will land on their feet, but this usually doesn't do them much
good, since right after they make their graceful landing several
tons of red-hot starship and pissed off aliens crash on top of them.
