Air Pressure: Egg into a Flask
(At this point, you're probably looking for an additional picture. My camera went on hiatus, so there is no picture, but I can tell you that my egg was too large for the bottle I had on hand, so even if I had a picture, it wouldn't look terribly different from the one above.)
There are ways to use air pressure to get the egg out, but I can never get them to work. Instead, I break up the egg with a knife and dump it out. Not as dramatic, but it works! If you're interested in trying it for yourself, do a Google search and you'll find numerous sites with directions.
You'll probably want to try this demonstration once before performing, to check that your bottle/flask opening and egg are a good size match. (See above). Of course, eggs are all slightly different sizes, so there's no guarantee that you won't get the egg stuck in the neck of the flask, but it should give you a good idea!
