    People say that, no matter how hard you squeeze an egg, the shell won't break...

    Well, that is apparently not true.

    I decided to try it today (stupid me). I squeezed it with my hands as hard as I could...

    POP! goes the egg. Yolk and white all over the grass, and me.

    [​IMG] Now I know,

    NEVER to do that again.

    So from someone with experience,

    DO NOT try it. You will be covered with egg,

    as well as your grass.

    Side to side it will bust. Longways its harder. Dont palm it use a thumb on the bottom and a finger on the point.

    Squeeze it with ONE hand, not both. [​IMG]

    It also depends on if you're squeezing it evenly and how large the egg is to your hand.
