Biology Again

Emily had to do an experiment for Biology this week.  It's one we've done before, several times actually, so we knew what would happen.

She had to take a fresh, uncooked egg, cover it in pure vinegar, and let it sit for a week.  

What happens, as we knew it would, is that the vinegar eats the shell off the egg.  

It's very interesting to see a shell-less egg, still in egg-shape.  You can see right through that thin white membrane that always makes it so difficult to peel a hard-boiled egg.  

I was planning to take a picture of it to share with you.

Instead, I have a picture of this:
 The splat that it makes, as Emily tosses it from one hand to the other and misses.

And a picture of Emily washing the splat off her feet after she cleaned the kitchen floor.
