It's best to have an egg under cooked
Unless you want salmonella.
That's making the assumption that all eggs are contaminated. If you buy from an untrustworthy source then yes--I'd cook thoroughly. But if you trust your source, you shouldn't have to be paranoid about salmonella.

I had to take a Food Safety class for my current job. It made me paranoid about everything.

Not much in this world is as disgusting as an undercooked egg, in my opinion. I want practically all the moisture boiled, fried, or scrambled out of my egg before it touches my plate!

The only reason I like eggs is that I need them to bake a cake.

TIL that some people actually care about what an athlete's hair looks like. I have no idea WHY they care, but they do, for some strange reason.

I don't really care, but there's a dude in the Olympics -- volleyball, maybe? -- that has an epic unibrow. I'm sorry, but if I was going to be on TV all around the world, I would wax that shit.

I'm shocked that a lady of such good taste normally can be so dreadfully wrong.
  • Omelettes should be nicely baveuse.
  • Fried eggs must have a runny yolk to cut open.
  • Boiled eggs need to be soft to dip your soldiers into.
  • Eggs Benedict demand a soft poached egg.
  • Scrambled eggs need to be squidgedly creamy.
These are the Five Egg Commandments! All that the Lord of Eggs hath said will you do, and be obedient.

Glorious. The word you're looking for, is Glorious.

I grew up on runny eggs with toast soldiers and they made me what I am today. What higher recommendation could there be?

(if soft-boiled eggs aren't your thing, toast soldiers are also cool with soft baked eggs)

Ugh, Holdfast, I haven't seen such a nauseating display of drippy, runny slime since I helped my dad wash the windshield after we drove through a swarm of mating mayflies.

See, you should have made toast, and treated yourself to a free meal...
