Fake eggs?!?! What'll they come up with next?????

In related news, I really want to try a real 100-year egg. Granted, the eggs aren't really 100 years old, they're just packed with lime (as in calcium oxide/hydroxide, not the fruit) and wood ash and buried for a couple months and they end up looking like this. The mind-boggling chemical reactions that must take place for an egg to turn into that have everything to do with the intense alkalinity of the packaging materials. Very intriguing stuff.

You are far braver than I.
