::Break it if you can::

One of my colleagues came up with a curiosity again today. (..and btw, she's not a Geminian.) She was walking around with an egg in her hand and came up to me and the others. She's gonna give a $100 to anyone managed to crush the egg with just one hand. $100?! Seriously?!

Put the egg in your palm and try to squeeze with mighty force. It's impossible. My colleagues were trying their lucks though. :O I didn't participate. I was more interested with the theory as I'm labeled as the Googler at work. Hehee..

Here's the best answer that I found:
Because if you apply equal force to two ends of an egg it wont crack. It is physically impossible.

However...(another extended answer):
It will break when you overload pressure at one side instead of both.

Hmm...I better try my luck and claim that $100. *Hoping the bet is still on* Hehe.

I'm off to practice now.
