The self-timing egg
The Times (UK), npr: the British Egg Information Service will introduce eggs with an ink printed on them to tell you when they're ready. The radio story has a lovely bit of cultural mixup when the American host doesn't understand what the British guest means by "soldiers."
Meanwhile, CBS is going to run ads on eggs. All those DVRsters who ffwd past network promos will learn that Survivor is on at 8 on Thursdays one way or another.
All this is fine with me. I have no snarky reply, no jokes, no rants, no resigned cynicism. Writing on eggs: I'm for it. Indeed I do it all the time, marking the cooked eggs in the carton to distinguish them from the raw ones.
