UK magazine recently held a competition, inviting its readers submit new high fundamental scientific theories on ANY (Any means...ANY) subject. Below are the winners:

4th place (Subject: Bio-Mechanics)

Why Yawning Is Contagious:

You yawn to equalize the pressure on your eardrums.
This pressure change outside your head unbalances other people's ear pressures, so they then yawn to even it out.

3rd place (Subject: Symbolic Logic)

The Chinese are technologically underdeveloped because each of their alphabetical characters represents a whole word or phrase, rather than a single letter.

Thus they cannot use acronyms to communicate technical ideas at a faster rate.

2nd place (Subject: Newtonian Mechanics)

Deforestation may cause earthquakes, tidal waves, or even the total destruction of our planet. Just as a figure-skater's rate of spin increases when the arms are brought in close to the body, the cutting down of tall trees may cause the Earth to spin dangerously fast on its

axis with disastrous results.

Winner (Subject: Perpetual Motion)

When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is dropped, it always lands buttered side down. Therefore, if a slice of toast is strapped to a cat's back, buttered side up, and the animal is then dropped, the two opposing forces will cause it to hover, spinning inches above the ground. If enough toast-laden felines were used, they could form the basis of a high-speed monorail system.
