• did you know?.
Albert Einstein once said his
2nd-best idea (after the theory
of relativity) was soft-boiling
an egg at the same time as he
was cooking his soup, so he
could get two meals and
only have to wash one pot.

    • Why would you have to wash the pot you softboiled the egg in? You're literally just boiling an egg in water. Now if you're so lazy you don't want to have to take the pot out and dry it after, that makes sense.

    • I do this every time I make instant Ramen. It really does a lot to make the meal feel a lot less broke and depressing. The best part is you literally don’t have to do anything other than crack an egg and make sure the pot doesn’t boil over.
