Egg tells you when it's done being cooked
The people at British Lion Quality Eggs have developed eggs that let people know when they're done. The new eggs are sold in three varieties: soft, medium and hard. A hungry moron need only buy the egg type that corresponds with his preference and place it in boiling water. A special heat-activated logo appears when the egg is cooked to your liking. It even reminds you how it is that you've cooked your egg so there are no unpleasant surprises when you crack it open.
At least these guys didn't waste their lives developing something useless. Because the number one priority in the world today is making sure people are able to properly cook their eggs. I'm not sure I'd be willing to buy a $5 egg though, even if it was gauranteed to cook perfectly.
