Mohammed Abelhameed Muqbel has set a Guinness World Records of largest stack of eggs. Muqbel was able to identify each egg’s centre of mass and stack them exactly so that the combined centre of mass of the three eggs was situated directly above the very small base of the stack. This required high concentration, patience and practice. #worldrecord #guinessworldrecord #khaleejtimes #knowyourkt #khaleejtimesonline #dailyart #practicemakesperfect
The record-keeping organization stipulated that the eggs had to remain stacked for at least five seconds and all three eggs had to be fresh and free from cracks in their shells.
Muqbel, who has been teaching himself to stack eggs since the age of 6, said he found the trick was to identify each egg’s center of mass and ensure they aligned while stacked. He said stacking the eggs took a high level of concentration, as well as patience and practice.
