Nobody ever believes this experiment is going to work but I promise you it will! Go on, give it a try, it's an absolutely incredible feeling and all you need to get started are 2 six packs of eggs!
STEP1 - First off, it's time to build your confidence. Hold an egg in your hand vertically and start to squeeze it!
WARNING: Make sure it's vertical, not horizontal and you're not wearing a ring. Squeeze, harder and harder, the egg doesn't break!
STEP2 - Expect the best but plan for the worst! You might be best to do this experiment in the kitchen, that way if all goes horribly wrong (not that it will!) it'll be easy to clean up!
STEP3 - Lay your two packs of eggs on the floor, side by side, and get a chair or something to hold on to for support. The eggs will take your weight (I'm 80kg, 13 stone+ and it took mine!). Try and spread your weight as evenly as possible across the eggs, once you're settled let go of the chair or whatever is supporting you!
Congratulations, you are now in an elite group of people who has stood on eggs!
This is mother nature at her very best!
The shape of the egg is eggcellently designed (I'm really sorry, there's no way I could write this without one egg joke, I'll keep it to one, I promise!).
The shape of the egg distributes your weight evenly and as long as you spread your weight between them, 12 eggs is enough to take all your weight.
That's amazing, considering how thin eggs are!
