First of all, here is why it is impossible to correctly hard boil an egg. Do a search on “perfect hard-boiled eggs” and you will find several (mostly similar) approaches. What they all have in common is knowing when the water boils. To know when the water boils, you have to watch it. But a watched pot never boils. Thus the eggs will never cook. QED.
Also, I want to say that I have a very passive-aggressive and stupid dog. See, a good dog will let you know when he needs to go out. A bad dog pees on the floor. My dog will never hint that he needs to go out, but when I finally do let him out, he pees for about half an hour, looking reproachfully at me all the while. Stupid and passive aggressive.
