How much pressure does it take to break an egg?
It is not so much as how much pressure as where the pressure is applied. If you keep the egg upright and try to apply pressure at the top and bottom, the egg won't break as easily as much as when you apply it in the middle. The shape of the egg gives greater tensile strength to the ends but the middle is comparitively fragile.
