: O.K. Permit me to take this forum from music to science for a moment. Most of you know that Spring begins in the northern hemisphere tomorrow morning at
: 8:31 am Eastern Standard Time. And most of you may remember the little trick
: you can do with a raw egg: Balance it on its end. You can do this because the
: Sun is directly over the equator and its gravitational pull is equal at both
: poles allowing an object with a solid exterior and a liquid interior to balance
: on its end. No, you can't do it with a hard boiled egg. For added excitement,
: try balancing the egg on its pointy end on a mirror; it can be done. Also you don't have to wait for 8:31 am exactly; it will work right now, and up until
: about Wednesday night. Afterwards, make an omlet!

: I await your reports.

A hint on how to do this: Take the raw egg, place it on its wide end, and hold it between the tips of your thumb and forefinger of both hands at the very top of the egg. Hold it for a few seconds 'till the inside stabilizes. You can almost feel it "CLICK" into position. If you don't succeed at first, keep trying. It will also work on the pointy end, but it's much harder.


This may be dumb, but you can only do it two days out of the year.
