Who knew that the property of inertia could produce such an amazing effect! As a force sends a pie tin and cardboard tubes flying, the eggs on top of them fall straight down into cups of water. A spectacular example of Newton's First Law of Motion. All the science behind this impressive trick is described. Directions to set up and perform the trick are described in a visual manner using high quality images so that it is easy to follow. There is also a bold variation described where instead of using your hand to supply the force, a broom handle is used to strike the pie tin.
