How to Scramble Eggs Inside Their Shell

It's like a hard-boiled egg, but scrambled. We don't get it either

Fans of rubbery scrambled eggs, watch carefully. This YouTube video might just be your perfect way to have your eggs (we prefer over-medium, but that's just us). Ever want your scrambled eggs to look like a hard-boiled egg and be completely portable?

The video instructs us to place eggs into the sleeve of a sweater, twine both ends tightly, and spin and unwind said egg at least a dozen times. To check if the egg is scrambled, hold it up to the light. "A scrambled egg will let only a small amount of red tinted light through, a normal egg will be much brighter and have a yellow tint," the about section says.

Then boil as you would a normal hard-boiled eggs; the eggs might pop if cooked in water at a full boil, so just let the water start bubbling, turn off the burner, add the eggs, cover, and let them sit for 15 minutes. 

Concept aside (scrambled eggs in an egg!), we're not too sure how tasty this will be. Soft scrambled eggs mixed with some cream and chives tend fo be our favorite, so if anyone comes up with some trickery to make this happen in an unbroken egg shell, we'd be down. In this particular instance, however, we're going to pass.
