( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
So I was just thinking, I like eggs whites a lot; and, I have 4 dozen eggs. Each one of my dozens consists of exactly 12 eggs: thus, I have 48 eggs. They are white eggs, and in cardboard box identified as being of type "Large".

I'm looking for a fast way to utilize the Egg whites, filtering out the egg yellows. Something akin to

SELECT stuff FROM egg WHERE color IS WHITE

Not, that I'm racist or anything.

I realize such a filtering method isn't kosher. I know very little about the composition of the egg; however, I'm looking to get just the substance that is white. Speed is of great concern: I need to do the least amount of iterative work possible. If theory permits, I highly prefer to operate on the set as a whole.

I had eggs before. I've tried a few thing few things on the previous sets but my current strategy remains more akin alchemy. Further progress into the development of a successful technique has been stagnant. So far, my theory is that when the equilibrium of yellow-white is violated a new product is produced in a massive egg-reaction of sort. Reversal of this process appears to be beyond the scope of modern technology. I've read the googles and I've been unable to find much research done on this new undesired hybrid substance.

I've tried consulting God to no avail. He acknowledges the eggs are his but says I should not be messing with them. I think that this well guarded secret might lead to greater revelation, namely a cure for AIDs. There also appears to be a clue written in some obscure tongue on the box, presumably by the race of people that created the eggs: "Grado Grende Huevos."

Please advise.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
