    Kiwi *fruit. (Kiwi = a person from NZ or the bird). Also, best to cut it in
    half then scoop with a spoon. :)

    THE EGG ONE DOES WORK! The boiled egg will spin much faster than the raw
    one and I could see that from the video.
    >you can also shake it up to your ear and can hear the yolk and insides
    swish around
    >or you can spin it, stop it, then let go, a raw egg will keep spinning
    (from the momentum of the insides) and a cooked one should just stay still.

    And the cream one works aswell, you just need to do it for longer. Like
    what the hell do you think one second is going to do?

  13. ripyotoodooles Jack says:

    some of these are easy he just doesn’t have skill

  14. Jazzie Red says:

    As soon as you spinned the eggs I knew which was which… It’s not the
    wobble, but how fast it spins.

  15. Jacob Westman says:

    A guy is trying to market a pizza plate box. Just comes with more

  16. artofvoice says:

    If you had shaken the cream and sugar for a longer time, it would have

  17. Sidney Horne says:

    you can definitely tell the difference between a raw and hard boiled egg be
    spinning them….you just did it wrong.

  18. Jeffrey Coplin says:

    You didn’t even shake the bottle long nought for whipped cream to form

  19. pipsipirate says:
