Boy, was he right. It IS a myth. The equinox has no effect on an egg.
After all, I can balance eggs ANY TIME OF THE YEAR.
In the 80's I was writing a short story (SF) and the crux of the matter was that something only happened as long as an egg stood on its end.
Not knowing any better (that myth thing), I grabbed some eggs from the 'fridge so I could see how long an egg COULD stand up. That way the story would have some truth.
|Eggs balanced - 6/1986|
|Eggs balanced - yesterday|
So, yesterday after Castle, I grabbed some eggs from the 'fridge and voila!
How egg-citing that eggs still have legs. LOL
(P.S. I never finished the story. That the eggs stood so long totally messed up the plot. *heh*)
** Since 1986 I think I've figured out how eggs can stand up and why the pointy end is better for balancing, in case anyone wants to know...
