I was told that this urban legend originated from China when American Annalee Jacoby witnessed a peculiar ritual while she was in the capital city of Chungking at that time. A crowd of people came to balance eggs. It must have been quite a sight, and so she wrote about it for Life magazine and it has gone viral since.

I've never once succeeded.
One broken (it rolled off the counter) and 2 cracked eggs later, my effort ended up in these hedgies I made.
