I was prompted to test out an old saw, and placed two small containers on the kitchen counter. After 48 hours, the score was: honey 0, vinegar 1. (A mostly-empty cup of yogurt also trapped 1.) Busted!
Continuing in the iconoclastic spirit, I attempted to balance a raw egg on its end, it being not-the-Equinox. This is a trick I have successfully performed before, but was unable to do so now. Honesty compels me to report the negative result.
