Eggs come from hen butts.

It depends on how you place the carton in the refrigerator.

From a practical...non ocd stance... B or C.   It distributes the egg weight evenly in the carton so if you pick it up at one end the eggs don't all fall to the floor.

I had a good friend who said that eggs were "liquid chickens". Think about that.....

True.  But if you use option D and place the carton on the shelf with the egg-side to the front, then you'd pick it up where the weight is the heaviest and still won't spill them.

Edited to add: ... which is why I chose Option B.  It works no matter how you pick up the carton.

Clearly "other."  One egg should be placed in each corner.  It's symmetrical, and if you place them any other way, the corners feel too "light."

This post interrupted me checking to see if the door is locked.  I only made it to the thirtieth attempt.  I will now resume checking.

Just as odd, is how to put them in the fridge - I like the light end of the carton toward me - I don't know why.

Due to frailty and quality of styroform these days, obviously A.  Provides proper weight distribution along carton surface area.  Thus reducing the probability of carton collapsing and dropping (breaking) the eggs.

B is acceptable, if you have the habit of grabbing the carton on the middle.  I'd guess most don't

And yes, I am OCD enough to have thought this through in the past.

D

I start at one end of the carton and take them out until I reach the other end, to lazy to move them around, for me OCD takes a back seat to my natural sloth..

D.  The question says you have 4 eggs left, which implies you've already used 8, and an OCD person would use eggs the correct way - start at one end of the carton and work toward the other end.  You wouldnt just pull them out Willy-nilly from the carton.

I bought a big crock pot a few weeks ago and started a whole ham in it at about 5 AM this morning. The house is starting to smell hammy.
