    Awhile back someone posted a thread about how you could submerge an egg in vinegar overnight and the vinegar would dissolve the eggshell, leaving the membrane and inside of the egg intact.
    I was really REALLY bored last night, so I tried it. We only have apple cider vinegar and the egg still looked normal this morning, so I thought I'd give it more time.
    I just drained off the vinegar and it worked!
    The result looks and feels really weird and it bounces when you poke it. [​IMG]

    [​IMG] My son did this as a Science Fair Entry last year... all the kids and teachers thought it was WAY cool!

    Did you do it with a raw egg? We used a raw egg and DS bet other kids he could peel a raw egg and keep it intact. They all said "NO WAY - a raw egg?" DS: YEP! [​IMG]

    It took a little over 19 hours in white vinegar to peel - and was awesome! I'll post pics of what it looked like when I find them on my system.

    Quote:Yep, used a raw egg. Really smart bet for your DS to make.
    Something tells me that if I tell my SO about the bet your DS made, he'll have to try it on some of the guys at work.
