Eggs and the Vernal Equinox

Is it the vernal equinox? Is it Mike? Is it me?

I’ve got this picture of eggs standing up on my kitchen counter all by themselves. It’s not a fake or me pulling a fast one on you. Mike came in the kitchen this morning, took eggs out of the refrigerator and in just a minute had these two eggs standing on end.

Rumor has it that he was able to do this because today is the vernal equinox. We have an equinox twice a year when the length of day and night are the same. The vernal equinox is the first day of
spring (today, yay!). The autumnal equinox is the first day of fall.

It is now 3 hours later and I’ve tried it myself – twice. Same eggs. I can’t do it! Is it me? Is there some truth to the tale and Mike got the timing just right? Is Mike more patient and he can always do this? No conclusions here. Just the facts.
