Can you balance an egg on its end during the autumnal equinox?
With practice you can balance an egg on its end on any day of
It is an urban legend that you can only do so on the first day of spring and autumn because of the earth's tilt on those days.
I stood an egg up today, September 22, 2010, also known as the autumnal equinox. I've also heard that you can stand an egg up every solstice and equinox, but my chemistry teacher said that is can only happen on the autumnal equinox. At any time. I tried it on the Autumnal equinox one year, and it worked , and I have pictures of it.
This is an urban legend. There is no special change in gravitation on December 21 (the winter solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, when the Earth is closest to the Sun). If an egg cannot be balanced at any other time, it will not be any more possible on December 21. And, oddly enough, the original date suggested was the vernal equinox (March 21 in the Northern Hemisphere). Nothing special about balancing then either.
Answer Yes you can! My sister, her husband and I actually were able to do it (and we took pictures to prove it). It takes a steady hand and a tremendous amount of patience, but it can be done. I believe there was a small window of time (maybe an hour or so) and I don't recall when that time was - other than on the vernal equinox - or why that is, but that…
Discharge serves a few functions: Keeps vaginal walls lubricated to prevent tissue damage. Is acidic in pH to maintain healthy balance of flora. Flushes out dead cells and dirt from the vagina. During arousal additional lubrication allows penetration during sex. When fertile cervical mucus changes to allow sperm to reach the egg.
During Oogenesis(egg production) the egg cells do not divide equally during cytokinesis. The egg cell needs to have more mass for the future embryo. During spermatogenesis each parent cell eventually divides into four identical sperm cells, while an ovum will divide into 1 big cell and 3 tiny, worthless cells.
