What is ”egg-shaped” even? I used to think it was the shape of a chicken egg. Then one day I saw a collection of eggs from lots of different bird species, and I realized just how many different kind of egg shapes there really are! I had to know why. And it turns out a couple teams of scientists had wondered the same thing. Here’s what science says about why eggs are egg-shaped, if that's even a thing, which I’ve learned it might not be. Evolution of bird eggs, go!

Birds dont lay square eggs because their vulvas arent square and even if it were square it would break too easy. The strongest shape decided by mutation and survival rate, it is what it is because it cant be not what it is.

I simply don't get it: Why do people still spout evolution? It never gathered enough imperical evidence to pass from hypothesis to theory stage (according to scientific principles), and yet people fling the term around, like any other urban myth, as if it were fact. SIGH. If we're going to use evolution to explain things, why don't we just ditch medicinces and go back to using snake oils and smoke?

Growing up, in the 80s, the local paper (The Oregonian) had a comic on the comics page in which subscribers submitted egg puns. Usually it was "eggs" in place of the "ex" that eggsist in many words.
