Peel an Egg

After watching the "Sprint Cut" on how to peel an egg at I was intrigued. I thought this might be useful for Tim and me considering how many hardboiled eggs we eat. So we gave it shot. Results are below (unfortunately, I didn't realize the digital camera doesn't record sound). We're not certain whether it belongs in Handy Tricks or How Not To...

Does anyone else think of factories filled with poor women doing this all day, into jars of vinegar? L
yes : (
. You spend too much time at the dram shops. LOL . That's the only place I see those _nasty_ things around this area.
I don't know what a 'dram shop' is, but I'm interested. ? L

Dram shop or Dramshop is a legal term in the United States referring to a bar, tavern or the like where alcoholic beverages are sold. Traditionally, it referred to a shop where spirits were sold by the dram, a small unit of liquid. Dram shop liability refers to the body of law governing the liability of taverns, liquor stores and other commercial establishments that serve alcoholic beverages. Generally, dram shop laws establish the liability of establishments arising out of the sale of alcohol to visibly intoxicated persons or minors who subsequently cause death or injury to third-parties—those not having a relationship to the bar, as a result of alcohol-related car crashes and other accidents. TMI ?
Thanks for the vivid image Lemonie. I don't think I will ever be able to view pickled eggs in quite the same way! :-/
Yea, it's an image I'm not going to be able to shift easily... L

Eric-- you were too gentile! Tim really hit it hard! I was just about to make a topic saying how great these ads are... I actually pay attention to them, and watch them! (I think its funny how you both "stop" in the same position :P) By the way -- the shirt thing didn't work for me, the holes are wayy to small. Maybe if you wore a size too big. How to tie shoes quickly is already on instructables... so that works...

Something the video didn't capture but might be of interest: Tim found these eggs in the bottom of the fridge. They were probably at least a month old, and were completely green on the inside. Some of my hesitation was in not actually wanting to find out what was inside the egg...
Wow :P How did they not smell?!
