EggGASM is an annual Golden Apple Seed Mission. The object of the game is to hide cool things inside of plastic eggs and hide them for people to find on Easter.

That sound fun. I think I'll do it.

I'll post pictures of the eggs if I do.

This looks promising. I'll have to go and find cheapo plastic eggs now.

Damn you people and your good ideas.  8)

I am SO ON BOARD with this!

I live in the perfect neighborhood for it, too; a big park, shops, lots of pedestrians.

What happens if the eggs are mistaken for concealed plastic explosives?

It's probably just a phase.

EPIC WIN, that's what. We will never let the internet forget what happened that fateful day, when the eggs of the world turned against humanity.

You actually make them into concealed plastic explosives.  Hexamine + nitric acid get you the explosive bit.  Just need a plasticizer.  Leave out the detonator, though - you wouldn't want anybody to get hurt now, would you?


If I see a news report about "suspicious eggs" being found in major national airports...

Except that wouldn't actually be funny.

Not eggs but, me and my five year old brother bought two hundred little plastic and fluff chicks for 5 euro and put them into everything we could think of in the killarney shopping center.
No message attached, but i might do it again on my own with attached notes this week.

I got some awesome reactions as well whenever I was buying anything (putting one down on the counter after being handed my change), not much of a mindfuck at all but it got some nice smiles and comments.

Do not choose a coward's explanation, that hides behind the cause and the effect

That's incredibly cute... I really like that idea, and in a way sweet random acts are a bit of a mindfuck because people just don't expect them in today's society. In my opinion, anything that opens your consciousness to previously unconsidered possibilities is a sort of mindfuck.

There is an EggGASM cover page and some posters available to put up in the area where you're hiding eggs. Formatted in PDF for quick distribution in meatspace.

If anyone has a free moment, can you try your hand at making a banner which says


HIDE CRAZY CRAP IN PLASTIC EGGS 2008


?

I will try my hand at it, tomorrow, when I am sober and at my work computer which has Photoshop and not my poor little Mac which has Seashore, which sadly I as a Photoshop vet can't figure out.

I couldn't find any plastic egg that can be openned ; instead I have non-opennable plastic eggs.
So, bye bye messages.
But I'm drawing stuff on them and will put them around ; finding eggs on easter is already unusual so they might make someone's day stranger than usual and add a spark of fun and whimsicaleness into their day ; hopefully.
