I am currently reading "Bad Astronomy", by Philip C Plait. So far a good Myth debunking book. One of the things you always hear is how you can only stand an egg on end during the spring equinox. This is completely false you can stand eggs on end anytime. In fact I did one just recently. See attached pic. Try it, this may take a few tries but you can balance an egg. No salt, that's cheating.
