Slow Motion Egg Destruction [Video]

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: everything is better in slow motion. In this instance it’s twenty two eggs made interesting by meeting their demise in a variety of ways.

Of all the egg smashes in the video, we’re particularly fond of the tennis racket segment. Have a cool slow-mo video to share? Throw a link in the comments!

Slo-As-A-Mofo-Sho – Egg Destruction [via Boing Boing]

Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on if you'd like.

    It’s funny how no one ever wants to bring up topics like pre-term abortion when witnessing the destruction of eggs. But make no mistake, that’s what you’re seeing here. So is it just because we’re only dealing with chickens? Or what? (Don’t answer.)

    With so much suffering and starvation in the world, I can’t see how wasting food like that can be considered entertaining or even therapeutic. Sorry for being such a buzz-kill. But when you think about it, this kind of waste is pretty shameful.

    Actually the eggs you buy in a supermarket have no chance of turning into a chick someday — they’re not fertilized.

    But your point about waste is well-taken and I agree. I’d hope the eggs were expired already, but I doubt it.

    God I hope you are just a troll, Omlett Guy. If you are seriously having angst about breaking eggs I pity you.

    If you think this is wasting food, just go to a fast food joint at look at the “supersize meals”. Way more wasteful and harmful than breaking a couple of eggs.

    I think Omlett Guy needs a biology lesson…

    Great video. Even the music fit perfectly.

    Only the 12 year old troll detracted from it.

    lol

    Nothing at all wrong with having a little entertainment. Ido have a problem with the wasting of food, especially in light of the fact that there are so many people in the world with little or nothing to eat.
