There are three roads to ruin; women, gambling and technology. The most pleasant is with women, the quickest is with gambling, but the surest is with technology. -Georges Pompidou

Or perhaps the author was being subtle--toast lacks the ability and desire to _right_ itself, i.e., it cannot and does not wish to force itself to land butter-side up, rather, it has the ability and desire to force itself to land butter-side down. :-)

The wikipedia article states: "Toast, however, lacks both the ability and any desire to right itself." The author obviously does not believe (as I do) that there is no such thing as an inanimate object..... :-)

A variation on the Robin Hall quote would be: "Lawyers believe that a corporation is guilty until proven broke." The buttered cat paradox (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buttered_cat_paradox) results in perpetual motion.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
