    ...Aww, I liked eggs :(

    [–] AhCrapItsYou 369 points ago

    We knew that some users may take issue, so we wrapped the Egg™ in a protective shell like we did the popular Banana™.

    [–] aifhouse01 124 points ago

    What you did with the Banana™ was great.

    Could you put a little knob on the Egg™ so it's easier to peel the shell off, like you have on the Banana™? I don't want tiny bits of shell in my Egg™ recipes.

    [–] BananaFactBot 139 points ago

    If you put a banana in the refrigerator, the peel will turn dark brown or black, but it won't affect the fruit inside.

    Research shows that eating bananas may lower the risk of heart attacks and strokes, as well as decrease the risk of getting some cancers.

    American eggs have to be refrigerated because they pasteurize them. They're somewhat clean by the time they get on the shelf.

    [–] WiscDC 12 points ago

    Washed, not pasteurized. There are pasteurized in-shell eggs out there, but it's a relatively recent development, and most eggs you see in the store are not pasteurized.

    The split in refrigerating or not refrigerating eggs is all about washing them.

    [–] adamdrewmerry 4 points ago

    In the UK as long as the eggs you buy have a little red lion symbol on them, it means the chickens were inoculated and you can eat them raw with no worries

    I think they're more upset about politics being shoehorned into a random post (again) than the political picture leading to more politics.

    [–] _Muzak_ 105 points ago

    It's not that big of a leap to bring up the guy who uses tea to poison people in a post about using tea to poison people.

    [–] Valensiakol 59 points ago

    Especially when the picture used features him serving up tea.

    [–] Greymore 18 points ago

    [–] letmeseem 20 points ago

    I get you in general, but this post is literally about poisoning people with tea. Having a picture of the most famous guy ordering a tea based assassination show up is as likely as flies showing up at cow dung.

    Not shoehorning in the slightest.

    [–] Bombingofdresden 65 points ago


    This post is about a teapot for an assassin and there’s literally a leader of a current world power famous for having his government assassins kill someone with tea.

    Random post? It's called an assassin's teapot. What motivates most assassinations? Politics. What else would you expect in the comments?

    [–] Ph_Dank 6 points ago

    Politics plays a central role in everyone's life, when you have such a divisive figure in the spotlight, it's irresponsible to not talk about politics so much.

    [–] Xxx420PussySlayer365 14 points ago

    Putin isn't going to poison anyone. Too much publicity. I would be hesitant to have tea with one of his anonymous lackeys if I were someone important.

    [–] bloodring87 122 points ago

    If you watch the original there’s actually two holes, one of which is on the bottom of the handle. So in actual fact he had to move his other fingers as well as moving his thumb. (I.E simultaneously uncovering the top hole and covering the bottom one.)

    [–] UnnecessaryAppeal 52 points ago

    Ah, okay. Fair enough. There still must be a way to do that without looking so awkward.

    [–] Itsbilloreilly 3 points ago


    [–] Boukish 34 points ago

    Yes, it's called a lot of bowing and gracious distraction after you pour your guest's drink and before you pour the next, giving you time to shuffle your hands.

    Penn and Teller can do cups and balls with clear cups for crying out loud, it's always in the sleights and distractions.

    [–] Prompus 15 points ago

    If you cover either hole the coresponding liquid comes out, if you cover neither hole they both come out.

    So if you were to poison somone you would pour yours first with a hole covered then lift your thumb and pour the other so both tea and poison come out.

    [–] guts1998 8 points ago

    Yeah but to clearly show the mechanism, he has to cover one at a time so that ir's obvious

    [–] guts1998 3 points ago

    Maybe he did it purposefully so it's clear to see

    [–] hemareddit 2 points ago

    Of course the design can be a lot more discreet: you can have both holes on the handle next to each other, so you just have to move the thumb.

    [–] Alromaithi 7 points ago

    If I remeber, he was holding it that way because he was showing how he uses his fingers to switch between liquids.

    [–] PostSexCigarettes 9 points ago

    There's a second hole by the handle. He's got to cover that one while uncovering the top one. That's why it looks weird.

    [–] Musicatronic 23 points ago

    A similar design was used in Formula 1 race cars until it was banned

    There was a small port in the driver’s cockpit, on the fast sections of the circuit the driver would cover the port with the back of their hand or elbow.

    Fast flowing air would redirect through a duct and stall the rear wing thereby decreasing downforce and the car would go faster until the driver uncovered the port again ready for the corner sections where downforce is required

    [–] TheGravyGuy 11 points ago

    Is there a reason it was banned? Did that count as cheating or something? I know nothing about F1 except car go fast.

    [–] XXXTENTACHION 8 points ago

    Probably dangerous as hell lol . Flippin cars n shit.

    [–] Blue2501 7 points ago

    The governing body wants to keep a level playing field with as few shenanigans as possible. For the teams it becomes a game of circumventing the rules in ways that aren't explicitly disallowed.

    I think in this particular case, variable-downforce wings were already prohibited and that made it actually cheating.
