Technically the egg came first subby. But yeah we as a society are far too seperated from our food sources. I remember someone explaining why chicken breast where so popular because there are these bloodless, boneless gobs of meat that resembles nothing of the animal it came from pack in plastic sitting on a store shelf, it sanatizes the concept of eating meat. The problems come from the not knowing what one's actually eating and how the animal is actually treated.

Sugar is kind of strange, too.
Solid (granular) becomes liquid, then becomes hard again as heat is applied.
Liquid glucose might go from liquid to solid, but I'm not sure. Anyone know?

I wonder how many towards the 4 were the 11% who thought chocolate grew on trees

This is stupid click bait

I apologize for not putting this in all caps but information about industrial chocolate production lines and livestock production workflows are pressing and vital knowledge constructs that, if not imparted to the next generation of internet posters, will result in the complete collapse of all societies everywhere and many old men shaking fists at clouds.

So sugar is weird because it melts at high temperatures and resolidifies  like ice, metal, plastic, CO2, or basically most elements/compounds?

Egg doesn't actuall change from liquid to a solid in the state of matter sense but instead just reduces the amount of liquid present until the disolved solids are forced to, in a sense, crystalize.

What I find weird is the protien structure of albumin can actually be coerced into a plastic state simply by whipping air into it.

Technically the amniotic egg did come first. Waaaay before birds. BUT! technically: the first chicken would have been laid by a non chicken bird and hatched out of a non chicken egg. So technically speaking regarding specifically chickens and chicken eggs the chicken came first. Technically.

I actually spent several hours with eggs today. Found a stash in the feed shed and was amazed they were still fresh. Our temperatures have been in the high nineties for weeks.
Made creme patisserie and an eggy short crust for a Gateaux Basque. Used the extra whites for a meringue for my father in law who doesn't eat wheat. Then helped my mother in law make deviled eggs at her house. That was tricky, as she had no ingredients commonly used. Ended up with ranch dressing, Cayenne, and fresh dill in the yolk mixture. No mayo, mustard, pickle juice, vinegar, or paprika since the man of the house (FIL) won't eat them.
Eggs are pretty awesome.

You're a quick one.  Reflexes, that's what you've got! Me, I've got brains.

vignette2.wikia.nocookie.net

I think that - like eggs - many biological mammal fluids become solids when cooked properly.

See also, blood, fats (that are presented as liquids), and amniotic fluid / afterbirth.  That makes for some good sausages right there.

No.  The non-chicken laid a chicken egg.  If the non-chicken laid a non-chicken egg, it would hatch a non-chicken.

The interviewed ages 4 to 12, and expected... what, exactly?

4 year olds don't know where chocolate comes from? They dont' know eggs come from chickens when nobody ever refers to them as chicken eggs when making breakfast?

Big surprise.

OgreMagi: No. The non-chicken laid a chicken egg. If the non-chicken laid a non-chicken egg, it would hatch a non-chicken.


Depends. Is it a chicken egg because a chicken laid it, or is it a chicken egg because it hatches a chicken?

Show your work.

Or, is the first chicken genetically distinct enough from its parent that you can say that offspring is a chicken while the parents are not?

The kind of egg is defined by what hatches from it.
