Step 1: Squeezing An Egg without breaking it

Most people think eggs are fragile and easy to break, but think again.

An eggs unique shape actually allows weight and pressure applied to it to be distributed evenly.

It is also shaped almost like an arch and this transfers pressure down throughout the entire egg so it does not break.

Now if you are brave enough you can go on to the next step....


Step 2: Squeezing the Egg...

Place the egg in your palm. Then with your thumb and forefinger squeeze the egg vertically (like in the first picture). Good luck!

If you followed the directions correctly then you are clean! Good job you have completed the first challenge succesfully! If you are covered in egg then read the directions more carefully next time.

Now put the egg in your hand again. Close your hand so that your fingers are completely wrapped around the egg and squeeze the egg with even pressure on all parts.

Good job, you succesfully did what you previously thought was impossible and you have vanquished your fears of broken eggs!

Step 3: How to tell If an egg is cooked

Say you go to the park on a picnic with your girlfriend. You take out your food and then you arrive on the eggs. You don't remember if you cooked them or not because you were in a rush, so what do you do?
This amazing experiment will show you!
You spin the egg and if it spins well it is hardbroiled so eat away. However, if the egg is raw it will spin wobbly and then I suggest you chuck it into some nearby bushes.

If you want to know why this works then go on to the next step...
