Last week was the vernal equinox, and even though it would probably pass unnoticed if no one said anything about, a lot of news broadcasts trumpeted the (fallacious) first day of spring. That includes NBC's Today show, which managed to not only somehow botch the countdown to the moment of the equinox, they also just had to try to stand an egg on end. The results were, well, unsatisfactory, as you can see in this video. They should've watched my video instead. Or they could've gone to the cool magazine Mental Floss, which just so happened to link to another video of me from a few years back on the local news.
