wow never would'a thought of that...
That's interesting! Can you eat it?
XD
The egg is raw at the end of the experiment, But you can hard boil it (Or pop it and cook it any way you like) as it is. It will have a vinegar taste, but if you like vinegar it can be nice (The vinegar taste was a bit strong for me, But I added the egg to potato salad and the vinegar actually worked nicely with the potatoes)

If you do boil it, there is no need to peel it when it's cooked.

Vinegar eats away at calcium, what the vinegar has done to the egg is slowly and delicately eat away at the shell, The shell is no longer there, what is encasing the egg is the membrane that sits under the shell.

If the egg is a few weeks old it will pop very easily as the membrane is weaker. Fresh eggs work best.
if you want to .

how long does it last
After the vinegar has dissolved the shell, take the squishy egg and put it in a bowl and cover it with water. Wait a few days and the egg will absorb the water and get HUGE. Fun times

Soak the egg till soft, then light some paper on fire and drop the burning paper into a glass pop bottle and sit the softened egg on top. the egg gets sucked inside by science, and will harden eventually, the purpose of which is to perplex your friends over how you got the hard boiled egg in the bottle.
I say "WOW!"
