Building a Butter Algorithm

There's another routine somewhere in there about washing and drying the butter dish, too.

In my house, there's actually an extra step because we keep a spare, unfrozen stick of butter in the refrigerator, which goes in the dish, and then a frozen stick replaces the unfrozen stick.

Come back often for more funny math and geeky comics.

The joy of growing older. When I was a child, I never understood why adults didn't do certain simple things, like buttering your toast as an example. How could it be too much work? Just spread it on there with a knife and enjoy!

Then I grew up and got my own house and became responsible for keeping the entire place clean, stocked, etc.

"If I have toast with butter, I'll have to clean the crumbs off the counter and I'll have a plate and knife that need washed later.." plus all the logistics you mention in the comic.

I lost a lot of weight when I got my own house. Eating was too much work.
