I havo seen the quoslion a.skcd and answered, 1 don't expect that anyone will bo tho wiser as to why eggs boil hard Horn the answer given, but here it is. Tho haul- boiled oiitf Is hard Iwcau-su proteins clot on heating. This leads to Uio question, if you aro curious, tut to why piotuins clot on. hciuing, or us a diversion, why .some people culled hard-boiled, To oomo to on- other question: Why do men need moio food than women? This deems to boUier MHUB jieopki.
