Stop the presses! I've just come up with the perfect solution to the classic engineering challenge of dropping an egg from some hideous height and having it survive. Nothing that I've seen in any rules precludes it, and I can't believe that nobody has done it (or at least wasn't publicized as doing so). Attach a large parachute or parawing to a pregnant hen and let 'er go. The combination of artificial floatation and rudimentary wings should cause a pretty casual descent, and the container is designed by its evolution from its dinosaur ancestors to protect eggs. Can I patent this?
