This puzzle is at least 50 years old. I've seen it in children's puzzles book from the 50's and I'll bet it's older than that!

I thought it was good I have never ate a goose egg, aren't they kinda green looking? I wouldn't think of boiling one and eating it, Yikes!

I believe it would actually take longer since the eggs have to share the energy they are receiving from the boiling water, whereas one eggs gets all the energy to itself. Though it would still be faster than 80 minutes.
