Hey Look theres a butterfly!

The Butterfly effect is the explanation that something small can affect a large systems. It comes from a speech delivered in 1973 by Edward Lorenz titled, "Does the Flap of a Butterfly Wings in Brazil Set Off a Tornado in Texas?". It is based of the idea of a ripple effect, that as things continue they can become bigger and bigger until they become large enough to make a difference, or a tornado at least.
