When I was in sixth grade I took second place in my school`s Invention Convention. I invented the "easy-egg-split" which was a made of pieces of wood that I nailed together with a little platform for an egg. I attached a plastic knife to a rubber band, and put that on the device so that when you pulled the knife back, stretching the rubber band, and let go, it snapped back and sliced through the egg. It worked great because my goal was to not break the yolk as you might when you crack it on the counter. I thought of it for some reason today, and was laughing to myself. It was my first invention! I was wondering what other people`s easy-egg-splits were.
By the way, the kid who won first had stuck a fork in a battery
operated drill to make an automatic spaghetti twirler. I still
think I was robbed.
