1000-Year-Old-Eggs

As an international student from Taiwan, I (Kuan) have eaten probably thousands of 1000 year old eggs until I found out it is officially one of the most disgusting foods in the world. So, what is 1000 year old egg? The Chinese cover raw eggs—duck, chicken and sometimes quail—with a mix of clay, ash, quicklime, salt, and straw and let them sit for weeks or months to cure. The yolks turn deep-green and soften; the whites disintegrate into a transparent amber jelly. Reeking of sulphur, they’re served with silken tofu or pork, scallions and ginger, in the rice porridge known as congee, or simply as part of a banquet platter of cold finger foods.

Let’s check out how Remy thinks about 1000 year old egg.

1000 year old eggs are sold in most Chinese supermarkets today in the US.
But the question is DO YOU DARE?

Sport stacking or speed stacking, is a sport where players are supposed to stack cups in certain formations in the least amount of time or before their opponent. Seems simple right? Well, there are players out there like,Steven Purugganan, who can stack cups in 5.93 seconds!  There are even rules that all players must follow set by the World Sport Stacking Association.  So do you think you could challenge Steven Purugganan?
