With temperatures soaring in Shepparton, The News thought it would run a little experiment.January 18, 2014 4:44am
The brief: See if an egg will fry on the road.
News photographer Ray Sizer grabbed his trusty camera and headed outside.
A few minutes later he returned.
The result: A fail.
The camera overheated before the egg could fry.
But - not deterred - Ray headed to the lid of the barbecue to try again.
This time he carried an umbrella to shade the camera and a scoop of icecream because he wanted to see if it would melt first.
The result: A pass of sorts.
The icecream melted in minutes – the egg took a little longer.
‘‘This wasn’t the most exciting task I’ve had at The News,’’ Ray said.
‘‘But watch the video - we’ve speed it up for you.’’
It took about two hours for the egg to cook – and even then it probably wasn’t edible.
