  1. Egg, Shoes Thrown at Creator of China’s Great Firewall

    Various news outlets are reporting that Chinese police are investigating an incident in which an egg and shoes were thrown at Fang Binxing, the computer scientist credited with creating The Great Firewall of China. While we in the U.S. enjoy nearly unfettered access to the web, Chinese denizens are often blocked from information deemed unsavory or dangerous by authorities. The attack occurred on May 19th, during a lecture Binxing was giving at Wuhan University. Evidence of the attack comes from Twitter user "Hanunyi," who posted a picture of an egg in a hand and a tweet saying that egg and one of the two thrown shoes missed. The user, said to be a student, is attributed with hurling the egg and shoes. Obviously, one angry man does is not a fair indicator of how one the most populous nation on the planet feels about Internet censorship, but other reports seem to indicate that some Chinese bloggers are very supportive of Hanunyi. For his protest, Hanunyi has apparently been offered cash and other gifts. Though surely one shoe is not going to end censorship in China, it will be interesting to see how this plays out and if it will inspire others as shoe-throwing activism has in the past.

  2. Pinhole Cameras Made Out of Hollow Eggs, Break Shell to See Picture

    Using blown eggs (basically empty, but complete, eggshells), Francesco Capponi made pinhole cameras that capture somewhat creepy negative photos. Dubbed the Pinhegg, the camera can only take one photo, because the eggshell must be broken in order to see the actual photo, thus destroying the camera. Head on over to Lomography to check out Capponi's instructions on how to make the camera, and head on past the break to see a few more of the photos.

  3. This Is an Actual Eggshell, Carved to Its Bare Minimum

    Instructables member bbstudio set out to carve an eggshell as much as possible while still retaining the shape and the image of the egg; this was the result. "Yes, it is a real goose egg shell. I use a high speed engraving tool called a paragraver and a very light touch. I hold them in my hand while I carve them ... There is no resin involved. As a matter of fact, this egg is still not treated with anything." (Instructables via MAKE)

  4. Big Egg Contains Smaller Egg, is Kind of Gross [Video]

    We've all seen two yolks come out of an egg before, but we've probably never had two yolks pop out of an egg because the second yoke was inside another egg, which is exactly what happens in this clip from Japan. I took the high road and didn't make any Eggception jokes, but you can go right ahead and do so. I'll help you out: "Yo dawg, I heard you like eggs, so [enter joke here]."

  5. Labeled Eggs Are Cool, Remind You How Much Cholesterol Eggs Have

    How many of us have been standing over a hot skillet, egg in hand, breakfast nearly made, and paralyzed with dread about the exact nutrition information for the chicken ovum you're about to prepare? Too many. But thanks to some clever folks on the Internet and your handy-dandy EggBot egg printing system, you can have all the egg-related nutrition information right at your fingertips! No longer will you wonder how much sodium (65mg) or cholesterol (215mg) is in each egg. Throw off the yolk (no pun intended) of oppression, and embrace the new egg-based knowledge economy! This is where I tip my hand and admit that I had no idea what an EggBot was at first. Thankfully, I do now. Having seen what they're capable of, I know that my future has a lot of instant noodles in it while I scrimp and save to buy one. (Makerbot via BoingBoing, image via Thingiverse)

  6. The Ocarina of Egg

    We already knew you could make an ocarina out of wood, clay, bone, gourd, or plastic, and that sometimes elf chicks or princesses will give them to you, but YouTuber heita3 has now shown us that you can make an ocarina out of an egg. (h/t Make ) Provided you have a couple different drill bits, a light touch, and probably a lot of patience.  Be prepared to hear every song from your Beginner's Piano Workbook
