Deconstruction of the egg

At the State Fair this year, a woman working one of the exhibits told us of this egg phenomena. We did the shelling of an egg in vinegar before. She told us of a part the sequence I never heard of. Take the shelled egg and place it in corn syrup and the water gets sucked out (free energy thing I guess). Had to observe it. Frankie and I were on it as fast as we got in the door. Here are the observations. Very cool.

Day 1: Vinegar degradation of the shell in process.

Day 2: Egg after 1 day, residual shell brushed off.

Day 8 (or so): The shelled egg suspended in corn syrup for several days, dehydrated and leathery, ick.
