Hopefully it won`t prove to be non-toxic in the future.

"its funny how stupid americans are"

I`m getting really tired of this constant back and fourth bickering between arrogant f ucks who can`t seem to grasp hold of the fact that THERE`S STUPID PEOPLE EVERYWHERE.

The world would be a better place without ignorant people like you in it, thinking you`re all high and mighty based on where you live.

Now no need to call Americans stupid, you are one of them after all."

...It says he lives in America, perhaps he is not from there. which is what his post would seem to indicate. If someone from Europe moved to America when they were nineteen, are the American? Nope^^

"Meh. Can`t they just get a timer?"
Why waste money on a timer when you can get eggs with a built in timer. It`s one of those simple inventions that no one thinks about until now.

WTF? Do you honestly believe you`ll pay the same price for these spiffy eggs as you do for regular eggs? You can pay more each purchase on these `great inventions` or you can spend five bucks once on a digital egg timer: you set how you want your egg cooked, the timer beeps when it`s ready. I`ve had mine for about ten years now, since I left home.

*Looks at package*
"Hey, it says that the ink shows up after 3 minutes, which tells me that it`s done. So... that means I could buy these egg and have to check on them every so often to see if the ink is showing, OR I could putmy buzzer on to 3 minutes, and that will tell me when it`s done."

Not to mention the fact that regular eggs probably also cost less.

Taste and smell are pretty much the same thing.

What I meant to say is that eggs taste how a wet dog smells.

its funny how stupid americans are, they dont understand the beauty of this. i guess i really do have the european deep down in me, because i like soft boiled eggs so that i can dip soldiers in the yoke. and for the people in america that dont know what soldiers are, they are toast that is sliced into sticks.

and for anyone who thinks that the lion on there is just for company promotion, its actually a stamp they put on all the UK eggs to say it came from chickens that have all their shots.

turn on NPR from time-to-time to learn something.

"And I think they`ll soon get banned by some health-security things because the ink contains poo that gets in your egg when boiled and people die of it."

Umm... obviously they wouldn`t put the eggs on the market without taking that into consideration. Of course they`re going to test the ink to make sure it isn`t harmful, thus avoiding countless lawsuits. People these days are so damn sue-happy, they`ll do anything for money.

I can`t imagine not being able to boil an egg properly, but for those that can`t, it`s a pretty cool invention.

Just seems so pointless, I am seventeen now and have been cooking and baking so long I guesse this sort of thing never really seemed like a problem for me. I suppose if it will help some people it`s an all right idea.

You 13YO punks don`tknow the first thing about cooking. Boiling an egg correctly takes some practice and skill, especially if you like a yolk that`s not solid but you like solid whites. Yah anyone can throw eggs in a fucl<ing pot and boil them for 8 minutes. But can you *cook* a boiled egg? Bet not.
