This is a question Pointless Experiments

Pavlov's Frog writes: I once spent 20 minutes with my eyes closed to see what it was like being blind. I smashed my knee on the kitchen cupboard, and decided I'd be better off deaf as you can still watch television.

Crushing an egg in your hand by squeezing
This one time, when some eggs had gone past their sell-by date, I attempted to prove or disprove the theory that it is not possible to crush an egg length-ways in your hand by squeezing alone.

After much exertion this appeared to be the case; I could not crush the egg like this, so I then wondered if it was actually possible to crush it width-ways.

For a time it appeared that this wasn't possible either, but then I squeezed just that little bit more, and that extra pressure on the shell must have caused it to crack, and it broke.

Well I say broke, it actually exploded because of the pressure I was exerting on it, and it sprayed all the eggy goodness about 6 feet into the air, all over myself, and all over my good lady wife who was acting the part of an impartial observer to the proceedings.

I was quite unpopular for the rest of the evening.
