Yes and no. Obviously they'll eventually spoil but eggs are naturally pretty reislent and will usually last two or three weeks unrefridgerated (great news for backpackers!). This is due largely to natural antibactierial qualities in the shell. Temperature, the health of the chicken that laid the egg and the density and state of the shell (ie: cracks) will all effect longevity. A good rule of thumb is if it smells rotten, it is rotten (hence that "rotten egg" smell), otherwise enjoy!

Yes. All egg yolks contain cholesterol, because it is an important nutrient for a baby chick, to help build study cells. Unrefrigerated eggs are a health risk, because they will spoil much more quickly than refrigerated eggs. An egg loses as much freshness in one day unrefrigerated as it would in one week, refrigerated. Also, room temperatures promote the growth of harmful bacteria such as salmonella. So eggs should always be refrigerated as soon as possible.
