Nothing says SCIENCE like attempting an EGGsellent EGGspirement!
#Heatwave2017 was hot… like BLOODY HOT and instead of spending time at the beach like a normal Sydneysider, I decided to head to Canberra!
I don’t care what anyone says, I love Canberra! Mind you, if you’ve been to Washington DC, it’s nothing like it. However, Canberra is one of those places that’s a pretty relaxing place to hang out. I don’t know of many places in the world where you can park your car right outside, then go see exhibits at a totally empty museum.
My mate who is now a Canberran is as hardcore as me… so we decided to enjoy our breakfast in 41 degree Canberran heat. That’s how we came up with the idea to see if we could fry an egg outside.
The cafe we were enjoying our brekky said ‘absolutely no way’ to the public science experiment. The words, ‘gross’ and ‘disgusting’ were dropped into conversation. But, alas… not everyone thinks like us… we moved our experiment elsewhere.
We found a plate and a sacrificial egg, found some direct outside heat and cracked it. The yolk stayed intact… After six minutes, we noticed that the outside started to gain some white.. and then after twenty minutes the top of the yolk started to harden.
We left our experiment and when we returned, the egg had hardened. We’re not yolking. The egg crystallised. It turned to frickin dust – just like everything in Straya.
So there you go folks… Australia is the canary in the global warming coal mine.
A girl gone walkabout in the great big world!
