AUTUMN EGGS WON’T BALANCE!


Today is the autumn equinox. Usually, you can balance an egg.  Not this year.  What is going on?

For years people around the world have balanced eggs on the autumnal and vernal (spring) equinoxes. The autumnal equinox officially takes place at 1:18 p.m. EDT, which marks when the sun crosses the Earth’s equator, when there are both 12 hours of daytime and 12 hours of nighttime. It is at this time when many say eggs can be balanced on one end because of this is when gravity will be “balanced.”

Some have always felt that egg balancing is a trick and that the egg balancing on the equinoxes is a myth.  But multiple scientific sources have confirmed to WWN that this myth is a proven to be a fact.  You can ONLY balance an egg on the autumnal and vernal equinoxes.

“Today you should be able grab an egg and balance it on a table. You can do it easily.  On every other day of the year, it is impossible to get an egg to balance. It falls over. It doesn’t matter how patient you are, you won’t be able to.” said Phil Palaneux of NASA.

BUT, for some odd reason no eggs are balancing anywhere in the United States.  Many people in every state have tried to balance eggs, but they can’t?  What is the happening?

“It signals the end of times,” said astrologer Adriana Gucciero.  “Nostradamus predicted that when “eggs fall” that the third world war will begin.  It’s frightening.”   Many eschatologists agree with Gucciero and feel that the fact that eggs won’t balance, is a signal that the world is on an irreversible downward spiral.

“Hogwash. The world has been coming apart for the last ten years and it has nothing to do with eggs.  It’s all about uranium,” said physicist Franklin Mauber.

The Chinese were the first to notice that you could balance eggs on the vernal equinox, which is the first day of the Chinese solar calendar. Chinese insisted that the vernal equinox was the only day eggs could be balanced.  The ritual was popularized in a 1945 article in Life magazine.  But then scientists soon discovered that the eggs could also be balanced on the autumnal equinox.  “Richard Feynman made the discovery on September 21, 1953, after playing the bongos for five hours,” said Mauber.

Can you balance your fall egg?
