Description:

A pizza pan rests upon 3 beakers filled with water. On top of the pizza pan are 3 toilet tissue tubes supporting 3 raw eggs. The pizza pan is struck sharply with a broom and is launched forward. However, the inertia of the eggs causes them to 'stay at rest' and then fall down into the beakers.
