Kate's Corner: Walking on eggs

By  | 

BRIDGEPORT, W. Va. (WDTV) - Did you know that you can walk on eggs? Yes, you can put all your weight on eggs and still not crack them.

Here's what you'll need:
- Your two feet
- At least 2 cartons of eggs

You can do this barefoot or with shoes on. Just make sure if you're barefoot, you have someone to help you balance or shoes that even distribute your weight.

Have your cartons on the ground and when you're ready, put your whole foot down at one time on the eggs. when you're balanced, place the other foot on the other carton.

If you want to take it a step further, use more carton in a line and keep walking.

How are you walking on eggs without cracking every single one?

Well, first it has to do with the shape of the egg. It's basically a three-dimensional arch. The strongest parts are the top and the bottom.
It doesn't break because you are putting your weight on the top, the strongest part.

You are also not putting all your weight on just one egg. Instead, you are evenly spreading out your weight on 24 different eggs.

The egg carton itself is also specially designed to protect eggs. The individual spots support each egg from the bottom and also keep them separate from each other.

Try it out for yourself and see if you can do it too!
