That's actually pretty cool.

Agreed.

File "Crack An Egg Under 60 Feet of Water" under "Much Groovier Than Expected" along with "Mose Allison" and "Sex With Homely Women." .

Really impresses on you that an egg is a cell. also looks like a lot of sea critters.

Before or after it was cracked?

That proves... what exactly?
 
2012-06-28 06:11:01 PM
You guys are too easily amused.
 
2012-06-28 06:14:17 PM
For science eh? It was interesting but there was nothing for science at all.

That waterboarding does make them crack eventually... given enough water.
 
2012-06-28 06:30:43 PM
I'm guessing two feet of water would have worked just as well.
 
2012-06-28 06:38:48 PM
Clicked because I thought, "That doesn't sound deep enough for the pressure to crack the egg."

/Was right
//Sorta cool, I suppose

I actually was gonna say it was LESS cool than i expected it to be. I thought it gonna implode or something, like Michael Biehn in The Abyss.

\still neat.

That sound you hear is several hundred thousand pool filters clogging as children and teens everywhere try this at home.

casual disregard:

Well, to be fair a lot of us don't do the "float it around by waving the hand underwater" thing in the bath. More like "aaaaaaah... ooh don't stick to my leg hairs :/"

skepticultist:

Because your average jellyfish is... an amorphous blob held together by surprisingly strong protein-protein interactions, just like this egg when you shell it.

Followed by the classic dance of "AAGGHH get it all cleaned up and gone before my sister takes her bath 'cos she'll get pregnant AAAGGGHH"

Opposed to just leaving it stuck in the hair tangled in the drain, right.

In fact, it was the only time I've ever taken a shower after I already took a bath.

it proves the surface tension of a chicken fetus can hold itself together in seawater at @2 atmospheres. (-ic pressure)

Should've been an ostrich egg.
 
2012-06-28 09:09:28 PM
That's the chalazæist thing I've seen all day.
 
2012-06-28 09:24:44 PM
It's so natural. It's almost like the egg belongs in that environment, like... somehow... it used to be there naturally and then, like, I don't know... "changed" to have a shell through some unknown and frightening process.
 
2012-06-28 10:15:47 PM
Do you remember the "Mythbusters" episode, where they found out what would happen if an old-fashioned diving suit lost pressure, using a pig with extra viscera? Nasty!

Soak an egg in vinegar for a day or two and the shell dissolves leaving behind something not unlike a water balloon.

The video with the Greek chick on the "suggested videos" feature was much more entertaining. SFW where I work, but standards may vary.

Weird eggy jellyfish is cool!

It's like a tiny floating delicious breakfast jellyfish.

Was I the only one waiting for a large fish or shark to come out of nowhere and eat everything and everyone in sight?
 
2012-06-29 03:17:06 AM
Heh...the whole thing was pretty neat, but I was glad I watched through the end. Finally squashed it!

I'm surprised something didn't swim up and eat it during the taping.

A GIS for "Nastazia Mitropoulou" is quite informative. And pleasantly NSFW.

Haven't watched the video but I assume it's similar to this:

4.bp.blogspot.com

Did this on the last underwater inspection I was on. We got the ROV to bring a bag full of 16oz styrofoam cups to about 4,800' depth and this is what they ended up looking like. Pretty cool if you ask me.

Nope. Water doesn't compress until you reach ridiculous pressures. You could take that egg way down deep and it would still look pretty much like it does in the video.

Water doesn't have to compress in order to exert high pressure.

But it would have to compress to deform the egg. The egg is mostly water, just like you are.
