Can you stand an egg on its end?

An egg standing competition was held in Gongcheng Yao Autonomous County in southwest China's Guangxi on March 21, 2016. Besides local citizens, many foreign travelers took part in the game.

It is a tradition in many places of China to stand eggs on end on Spring Equinox, a term of Chinese lunar calendar. It is said that due to the sun's equidistant position between the poles of the earth on the first day of the spring, special gravitational forces apply. (Photo/People's Daily Online)
