I just Balanced an Egg :( Right... so the ability to balance an egg on the equinox is a myth. Everyone knows this. So when, at approximately 8:15pm DST in Atlanta, GA, my husband pulled out the eggs to balance one, I was not impressed. Then he got one to balance. I was looking for the trick. He repeated the event, then I managed to get the damned egg to balance. WTF??? Repeated the balancing a few times until 8:22pm, when husband regretted waking the monster and got all pouty because dinner was ready and we were eating not. I will try again tomorrow, but I am deeply unhappy. Seems to be a normal egg, with no particularly flat bits. We balanced it on a wooden table covered with a smoothed tablecloth. It seems to me that the tablecloth was not capable of compensating for the egg's curvature, thus balancing it. I would have liked to try on the bare tabletop, but ate the aforementioned dinner instead. Maybe it was the cloth? I'd say I'm shaken, but scrambled might be a more apt description.
