Well, I looked at 'Force and Torque While Frying An Egg', it being nearly lunchtime, but it only seemed to be valid if you rotate your egg while frying it.

So I just fried it in static, non-rotational mode, and ate it without lamenting the loss of angular momentum... laugh

Technical sites are very educational


A photon checks into a hotel, where a bellhop asks where its suitcase is.

The photon replies, “I didn’t bring any luggage. I’m traveling light.”

I saw a video a week or so ago of an escaped tiger walking the streets of a Mexican town, pursued by several courageous fellows, although it seemed more worried about them than vice versa.

I was impressed by one who lassoed the tiger first time. The video stopped just as the rope tightened... I trust he was OK!
