I swear I've seen pictures of kidney stones that look exactly like that egg. Not the one with the duck in it.

I can't say that there have been weirder kidney stones, but I can say that eggs, even naturally, can get pretty strange.

If scientists figured out how to mass-produce these, eggs would only have to come in 3-packs, and they could charge the same price for them.

Rarely do they get this bizarre, but yes, tong zi dan, or virgin boy eggs in English, are eggs soaked in the urine of young boys and eaten for (somewhat ambiguous) medical purposes.

One way they acquire the "marinade" for the eggs, according to the Wikipedia article:

Urine is collected from school toilets


Which must mean there are guys in China who do that for a living. That must be one hell of an interesting career day.

Ikizukuri is a sashimi where the fish is filleted alive and served with it's heart still beating.

Just to prove Britain is capable of weird food too, I give you this:

So basically, since the shells are cracked before they're soaked, you can actually taste the pee when you bite into it? I think the ammonia flavor of a century egg would be the lesser of the two evils.

Speaking of eggs, are these even real?

That doesn't sound too bad at all, weird as it may be. I'd actually buy some of that if I knew where to find it.

They actually have a few other unusual flavors I wouldn't mind trying if I got the chance.

I would imagine so, although I don't know what pee tastes like so I wouldn't bet 100% that the ammonia would taste any better or any worse.

Tea eggs sound thousands of times better.

They are indeed.

Apparently they are sold at 7-Eleven throughout Taiwan. They don't sound bad, but personally I would rather have a Slurpee.

It's St. Patrick's Day weekend. Anyone up for a Shamrock Shake?

I'll be honest, I've never tried one of these, partly due to my intolerance to lactose-based products, but as far as McDonald's-related goals go, trying a Shamrock Shake before I die is on my list.
