**UPDATE** I've done some research. The actual name in Japanese is
�rD�gu � or MD�D�g_~T which means Yellow Boiled Egg. Pretty straight forward name. I guess Golden egg is just the poetic version. (Instructables apparently doesn't support non-roman characters, so the Japanese didn't show up.)
**EDIT** It's been suggested that what I'm really using here is one leg from a pair of stockings. This could very well be true, as I know literally nothing about nylons or stockings. If so, just replace each instance of "nylons" with "stockings", and go at it!
**EDIT #2** Apparently the type of stocking / tight / legging / nylon may play a larger role than I knew. The stockings I use have a relatively low level of stretch. If the material is too stretchy then it won't spin properly. Also, it took me 4 eggs before I finally got a Golden egg (before I figured out the flashlight check in Step 3), so hang in there if it doesn't work on the first try!
