Science is cool...



There was a science experient that I always wanted to try...yes, I am a total nerd. Anyway, I have always heard that you can stand an egg on its end at the exact time of the spring equinox. So, we gave it a go. We found out the exact time and began trying to get the eggs on their ends. Well, sure enough at that time, they stood up. These eggs were standing on our counter without any help! The black granite counter also have an awesome reflection. One of the eggs fell after about 10 minutes while the other one continued to stand for over 2 hours! I've also heard that you can do the same thing during the fall equinox, but I'll have to test that one out then.
