    Please help settle a bet. We all know that a typical egg has a pointed end, and a round end. Which end comes out first when they're laid?

    [​IMG] I was betting on the large end coming out first too, but those xrays clearly show the egg emerging pointed end first. Now I have to tell DW she was right. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the responses.
