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.
