Infernal Equinox

Hey! I almost forgot: the vernal equinox is here! It happened at 00:07 Universal Time (5:07 p.m. Pacific time) on March 21, a few hours ago as I write this.

Yes, you can stand eggs on end. But yes, you can do it at any time of the year. No, it's no easier on the vernal equinox. No, I don't care if your egg fell over a few minutes after the equinox. Yes, I stand eggs up all the time, and yes, they stay standing up until I knock them over or someone walks by and vibrates the floor.
