You’ve Been Taking Eggs From The Carton All Wrong
I like pointless Internet arguments as much as anyone, but this one might be too pointless. Right now, people on Twitter are arguing over the right way to take eggs out of the carton.
There are four main camps:
- Remove the eggs from right to left.
- Remove them left to right.
- Alternate the sides so the carton is always balanced.
- Take them from the middle or grab them randomly.
For what it's worth, a YouTube math show once actually tackled the question. They say the best thing you can do is remove two eggs at a time, both from opposite sides, to keep the weight in the center. That way, no matter how anyone grabs the carton, it should be balanced so no eggs accidentally fall out.
