Boiled scrambled eggs? #FAIL

I was inspired by this video of a week ago

So I decided to give it a try.

The photos speak for themselves.  Cam says I’m too limp wristed.

It’s difficult to mount a case to the contrary.

  • In the second photo it looks like the egg is just ‘loosely’ in the shirt sleeve – whereas in the video it was a lot tighter; perhaps that is the reason?

      Im hearing ya…. I reckon a stretch type material would be better than a cotton shirt, especially on the “pull tight” after the swinging circles.

  • PlanetOrphan

    You could just shake it in your hand m8 :-)

Something along those lines anyway…whatever it is you need to stop using the crap you are…go for a run when you are angry or depressed…stay away from the herbs…up to you of course…wouldn’t dare dream of telling you how to live.

            Back at ya troll boy.
            And there should be a law against asking for someones address on a Blog, a $1000.00 fine would shut your mouth for you.

        • Bunswalla

          I call bullshit on your fantasy.You can carry 350kg deadweight across a valley on a bad day?

          Prove it.

          • PlanetOrphan

            Me and a mate, 20mm steel twin oven steel woodburner, It read 350kgs on the hoist.
            Bit of help from 2 others, but most of the way there was only room for single file, so they couldn’t get in the sides.
            My right shoulder slants down 1/2 inch because of it.

          • Hazards001

            Fuck you are so full of shit..i saw the original post you made you lying this a story you heard someone tell? Keep adding to it…can only get better…what a fucking wanker!

          • PlanetOrphan

            Which original post I’ve made a few.

  • Dumrse

    Whilst I doubt it made a difference, starting with cold water will prevent your eggs blowing out, cracking up, looking ugly and becoming water logged…….
    Just saying………..

  • stick to academia

  • Graeme

    I just tried this and it worked perfectly.

    Farmer Brown size 7 egg, at room temperature not from the fridge. Rolled it up in a tea towel and tied it tightly like in the video. Boiled from cold water, no cracking. If anything I spun it a little too much the whole egg was well scrambled.

  • unsol

    How random Petal – very funny! Must give it a try although it does seem to make such a simple meal far too academic :-)

    Allowed back in the kitchen again for a second go?
