Re: Printing on eggshells - setting type

Yes, an old parlor trick is to soak an egg in vinegar for at until it's
soft enough to slip through the neck of a coke bottle half filled with
water.  When the egg hits the water it hardens again.  Guests can't figure
out how you got the egg into the bottle without breaking it.

I tried it but it didn't work--yolk and water all over.

I agree, Winston, it's been fascinating!
