    True. But there's a band name in it, somewhere.

    Be quick and don't think about it.

    I learned this from journeyman cook back in my restaurant days.

    The same advice applies to eggs over-easy. If you go slow and think about it, you'll break the yoke.

    I also use a flat surface - the counter. Then dig my thumbs in the cracked dimple and pull it apart. Worst thing that happens to me is sometimes some egg leaks out on the counter.

    Gentle touch required though. If you get ALL of the egg leaking out, you've hit it too hard.

    Using a metal fork in a non-stick pan? Big no-no.

    I suggest watching as many Kung Fu reruns with David Carridine as you can.
    You may learn how to keep the grasshoppers out of your Omlettes as well.

    Not paying attention to the subtleties required.

    Be gentle but firm.

    Actually, those are egg whites, not whole eggs. And whatever spices, preservatives, etc. they put in them gives 'em an odd taste to me.
    I only eat whole eggs once every 1-2 weeks these days (trying to be good about cholesterol), but when it's not whole eggs, I'd much rather eat these than Egg Beaters.

    I can’t open a bag of ground coffee or tea leaves without spilling some.
    The damn things seem to have in built acme explosives inside.
