I love butter

Inspired by Alan Robinson, I decided to try if I do. And yes, I do love butter. And as usual, scientists often spoil the fun by finding an scientific explanation for this simple phenomena:

[T]he buttercup petal’s unique bright and glossy appearance is the result of the interplay between its different layers. In particular, the strong yellow reflection responsible for the chin illumination is mainly due to the epidermal layer of the petal that reflects yellow light with an intensity that is comparable to glass.

But no matter what scientists say, I really do like butter on my bread or in my food in general. And it really is not that unhealthy as some other scientists have claimed.

  5. One of the fundamental principles of Jewish cooking: "It's better with butter."Or, as my dad would say, "Of course I like cold butter! You get more that way!"
