  1. I object to eating eggs, not for a moral or political reason, but because they make me vom a bit. Probably has something to do with the fact that, under different circumstance, the eggy could have been a little birdy, with a beak and everything. Also, seems like eating eggs would dent your reproductive karma.

  2. I saw your photo sketch on eggs and thought I need to find and send you my photo of an egg-vending machine from when I lived in Japan. I was quite surprised to see you could walk down the street and buy eggs from an outside vending machine. But probably if you did a google image search you could find one online!

  4. Very cool. It’s amazing how the whole world depends on basically the exact same things for survival. I guess I knew how important eggs are, but never really thought about it before today. Thanks! :)

  5. The first thought that stroke me was “what a nice way to demonstrate the versatility of our world through… eggs!” )))) Different colors, sizes and styles of eggs made reminded me how big and diverse this world is ))) And made me crave not exactly for an omelet, but to learn more about the countries )))
