The RiotACT guide to singleton survival – Episode 4: The Egg

johnboy 11 January 2007 44

In our ongoing efforts to ensure young Canberrans leaving home this year stay as healthy as possible with the maximum possible beer budget allow me to present a vital ingredient: The egg…

It keeps for weeks without refrigeration. You can scramble it, you can fry it, you can boil it, you can cook it in with fried rice. It is used the world over as a source of cheap protein as evidenced by the wikipedia’s list of egg dishes.

I’m sure the comment gallery have plenty of suggestions for what can be done with eggs.

I think there should be a post in this series on finding accomodation/moving out of home – having recently been through the process of interviewing for flatmates it strikes me that there are a number of people who don’t know how to do this – e.g. when looking at a place, engage with the person. Spending two minutes looking at the place, barely talking about yourself or asking questions, then ringing up later asking if you got the place – not a winning strategy…

After all, an egg is a chicken’s period

Man who’d want to be a chicken? Every day??

Danman your first (big) post is a ripper. I must show it my wife, who hates cooking eggs or cooking anything ‘eggy’. 🙂

AD does have a point. After all, an egg is a chicken’s period. But johnboy is also right, it’s cheap protein.

Re suburban terrorism,

Fish heads in hub caps work exceptionally well.

And a potato (see previous RA postings on the humble potato) does wonders to a car when shoved up its exhaust pipe.

Dunno where you source your eggs AD – but i hope they do not sell apples

the egg is not a food. why would anyone eat something that smells as though it has come out of someones arse.

In hot weather (like this, similar to the Sahara), you can really save money by not cooking indoors. Park car in sun, take one dozen eggs, break them over the bonnet or roof with a little oil and invite your friends round to help scrape off and eat.
Additional benefit: your car will then look just right to enter into the next Summernats.

Also if you want (insert western accent here) “purdy” eggs – hard boil and the n crack shell and roll in hand to crack it finely but do no t peel – soak in a cup of black tea for about 10 minutes then peel – what you have left is an egg that looks quite like its made of marble

Hi, they’re all in the youth issues category, I prefer not to have categories for limited series (plan to wrap this one up by February).

Can someone please post the links to the last three instalments of the Singleton Survival thing? Advice by all sides of the RiotACT community is extremely helpful.

Preferably, could a moderator add a “Singleton Survival” link to the Main Menu on the right? It’s a series, and it would be easier to keep track of this way.

I think Ari and S4anta are working on the Riotact Guide to suburban terrorism…

Weird how they are all brown these days . . . when I was a kid you would get a random mix of white and brown in the dozen.

S4anta, hubcaps are an excellent place to put that mixture.

It’s the last place most people look.

S4anta S4anta 2:19 pm 11 Jan 07

not too mention, when mixed with mince, they become quite a handy spack filler to be placed with gay abandon in houses and other lacales where the desire is to create a smell fine enough to even wish that the barny army could have a shower after entering said locale. May i suggest air conditioning points?

S4anta S4anta 2:17 pm 11 Jan 07

When lobbing eggs, off or not. I tend to find that when semi-frozen the air bubble stays inside them enabling them to thrown with more vigour (anger), not too mention they then become ammunition for a variant of the orange gun, or sling shot.

Guessing you should wash out the shell a bit before putting the choccy in too?
