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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Timesí Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
