    Iiiii`m gonna weigh right in there and call a big steaming bucket of bullsh*t all over this.

    "Remember, the glowing egg will NOT be edible." As in, harder to swallow than this rampant, strident horsewank? Doubt it.

    Fellow IABers: follow the instructions and submit the unedited video of the luminescent, glow-in-the-dark egg. The prize? One Modship, handed directly from me to you. I`ll even throw in a blowjob.

    To all of the people that believe this crock of poo, you are WAY too gullible. why would only ONE egg be glowing after they all just went through the same treatment? Even if there is a reason for that, how is it chemically possible for a microwave to cause normal egg paint to glow?

    I don`t know why I clicked this. It was the last link I hadn`t checked all day, and it led to the exact disappointment I knew it would... then I read the comments and realized I wasn`t the only one.

    Ovotransferrin is a protein involved with the transport of iron atoms into cells. It has no bioluminescent properties that I know of. All the heat would do is deactivate the proteins, but only 10 seconds of nuking would have virtually no effect. This trick will probably work only if you use a phosphorescent dye.

    Batmanners, You`ve been turned down one too many times haven`t you? You`re sounding a little bitter. I didn`t realize until later on reading the other comments that this website is well known for tricking people and seeing as I wasn`t about to waste 20 minutes of my life trying it out, I didn`t really have a reason to doubt it until someone with better knowledge on it came along.

    In otherwords, shut the f uck up! :)

    2. Egg die
    3. And a simple microwave?

    Since when did a microwave become the most "simple" thing on that list? What a world we live in.

    I`m calling shenanigans. I did this last year, actually: I used the microwave to speed-dry a couple dyed eggs.

    Out of 20, I had about 5 or 6 raw ones in there, solely because I wanted my friend`s nephew to smash one by accident. XD

    Well, none of those glowed in the dark, or I would have been crapping bricks. XD

    I`m tempted to film it and submit it up here, but I don`t feel like finding an open store to purchase egg dye. >.<;;

    I`m backing simim23`s call of shenanigans, with an added helping of BS.
    My guess is that he swaps the top egg out, as the timer once he puts them down on the hob says "10:41" whilst when the lights are out they read "10:58".
    I also can`t think how this chemically or... physically makes sense.

    "..if it made them radioactive you wouldn`t be able to touch them either."

    Except that microwave ovens don`t use ionic radiation to cook, they use electromagnetic radiation in the microwave frequency band(hence their names). It`s the same stuff your cell phone uses just at a MUCH higher power level, and there`s no danger of cumulative exposure or of your food turning you into the incredible hulk.

    You don`t like eggs so you refuse to eat milk, honey, cheese etc?

    Oh... How does an egg do not explode in a microwave?! :D hahaha I don`t believe this one. It looks like a prank video, just secretly putting the microwave on "grill" mode so it will look like it`s working.

    Anyway... it could be true. I wouldn`t try it. I hate cleaning the microwave! :D

    An egg will definately explode in the microwave after about 30 seconds, I did this in my mom`s microwave when I was 8 or 9 years old, blew the door off, and made a huge upward dent in the top of the microwave.... it wakes a great deal of pressure to break the arcing eggshells.
