It's even a duplicate

EF - no stone unturned when seeking Swiss trivia to discuss.
Hmmm, but in that old thread of 2014 OP asked <Why are hard boiled eggs in the frig section of the supermarket?> Did EF have an influence of how those eggs are store these days?

I mean this forum is ruthless: It made me boil eggs at 1.30h am.

Re: Why don't hard boiled eggs need to be refrigerated in Swizerland

There is a simple way to tell if an egg has been hard boiled or not. You put it on a flat surface and spin it. The boiled egg will spin for a long time because it's solid, and the raw won't because there's liquid inside and one of the laws of physics will slow it down.
There is a faster, simpler, and more mind baffling way:

Slightly spinn the egg and stop it with the tip of your finger. As soon as stopped release the finger. A hard boiled egg will remain stopped, the raw egg will start to rotate again.

take your time to reply.....

That method can also highlight raw eggs that are off; fresh eggs will have the yolk continue spinning more freely than one that's gone off.
