Archive photo of the day: Magical Eggs

Magical Eggs by The Bacher Family
Magical Eggs, a photo by The Bacher Family on Flickr.
You would never guess it, but this is one of the most popular images on my website! It just goes to show the power of a well-placed link.

I couldn't figure out why this image, of all images, had risen to the top of my photo set, until I started investigating the web links people had followed to get there. Turns out my photo of David's science fair project, looking at the effects of soaking eggs in various liquids including water, soda, and vinegar, had ended up on a web page called "35 amazig science fair projects," including "star wars vs barbie" and "what do my farts smell like?"

The web page is:

In this photo, David and his friend Tyler are explaining their science fair project to some friends. David explains that the water had no effect on their eggs, while the vinegar turned the shell thin and rubbery, and the rootbeer made the shell brittle, cracked, and brown.

Just goes to show, you never know where your pictures will end up...
