Zimmern's bizarre foods stuck in my head on that egg.


That cat is no joke...... BUT Bear Grylls can give him a run for his money!

Right you are, I saw a video of his get out of barren islands where he ugh used his colon to absorb water from a brackish soup

Missed that. I guess that's one to filter water. The one that comes to mind for me is in a desert where he takes some sort of a camels stomach contents and squeezes the water out into his mouth.

Ahem, dearest iceng...

Your list is pretty thorough... but you overlooked "basted" eggs. ;-)

We can try that at Basting some
yokes at Burning Man come
the next year's eventual desert fun
under the Nevada burning Sun :-)

I look towards the photos!

Why cook them? Just incubate them for a while and hatch them into chicks. (assuming they are chicken eggs)

:-) Most chicken eggs are infertile unless you have a cockerel. Added to which you then have to grow them to chickens when at about 26 - 28 weeks they begin to lay eggs. - Lets see,

A chicken can be reckoned to lay an egg about every other day (some every 24 - 28 hours) so a clutch of 12 eggs leads to 12 chicks, 1/2 are cockerels so 6 chickens.

in 28 weeks 6 chickens are laying a minimum of 21 eggs a week in 28 weeks you have potentially 588 chicks, half are cockerels so 294 laying hens.

In 28 weeks you have 8232 chicks so in a year you go from 12 eggs & perhaps 2 chickens to over 8000!!! you don't want to see the food bill unless you sell the eggs

That's why we eat them! :-)

No chickens were harmed in this experiment.

Yep, they multiply faster than cats.
We had chickens years ago. They were fun but also a pain. The eggs used to freeze in the winter time unless you got them very quickly. We had a rooster that was a very big pain. He used to go after my children. we named him soup, as we determined that was his fate. It was delicious, with a touch of revenge thrown in.

The ways of using eggs is almost endless.

Another interesting note: the eggs will taste different depending one what the chickens have been eating. "Free range" chickens, which eat virtually everything can have some not so tasty eggs. A friend of mine who has a cattle ranch used to let his chickens run in the cow pens but he stopped doing that after people commented that his eggs tasted, or rather smelled pretty strongly of cow manure.
