  1. Boil water in a small saucepan (bubbles mean the water is boiling!). Remove two eggs from the refrigerator (one per person). Place them under hot tap water to prepare for what awaits them.
  2. One at a time, dip the eggs in the pan, so that they slide silently into the (boiling) water.

    Take time on your wristwatch.

  3. Stand over the eggs with a spoon in your hand, preventing the eggs (and they will undoubtedly try) to hit the stupid wall of the pan. But if, in spite of everything, the egg still cracked in the water (now the water is foaming like crazy) and spews clouds of white substance, like a medium in an old-fashioned spiritualistic session, catch it and throw it away.
  4. Take another egg and now be careful. After 200 seconds or, for example, 240 (given the interference), start to pull out the eggs.

  5. Put them in arable land, blunt end up. With a teaspoon, tap the egg in a circle and then remove the “cap” from the egg. Move the salt and make yourself a sandwich with bread (white) and butter. Eat.
