How to boil an egg

Recipe 1:
Run cold water into the saucepan until the water is 1 inch above the egg.
Place the saucepan on a stove and cook over medium heat until the water begins to boil.
Simmer for 2 to 3 minutes for soft-boiled eggs or 10 to 15 minutes for hard-boiled eggs.
Remove the egg with a spoon or ladle and let it cool slowly, or run cold water over it to cool it more quickly.

Recipe 2:
Cover with at least one inch of cold water over tops of shells.
Cover pot with lid and bring to a boil over medium heat.
As soon as the water comes to a full boil, remove from heat and let stand.
-Large soft-cooked eggs: let stand in hot water 1 to 4 minutes, depending on your tastes.
-Large hard-cooked eggs: let stand in hot water 15 to 17 minutes.
When cooked to desired level, drain off hot water.
Immediately cover with cold water and add a few ice cubes.

Recipe 3:
Place eggs in a saucepan with enough COLD tap water to cover completely by 1 inch.
Bring to a ROLLING boil over HIGH heat. Once the water is brought to a rolling boil, PROMPTLY reduce heat to a lower medium boil and cook an additional 10 minutes for a “hard boiled” egg.
For a “soft boiled” egg reduce the time by a few minutes.
Remove from heat and IMMEDIATELY place eggs under ice cold water or in a bowl of ICED water to chill promptly to help yolks stay bright yellow.

For something as simple as boiling an egg we have the first three recipes that I got from Yahoo search. People have been eating eggs since Grock grunted to Org: "Look at those soft rocks with a runny center- try one!"
Org: "No, I might get Salmonella."
Grock:"I'll crown you with my Brontosaurus-thigh club!"
Org:"OK. *Gaia- I'm gonna hafta find a new running buddy*."
Org cracks one open and slurps it down. "Yuk! It's slimy- almost as bad as that nasty-assed okra you made me eat least week. But it won't be too bad when they invent a skillet to cook it with."

Ooops...back to reality.
Three examples of a simple way to boil an egg- it's NOT rocket science.
But they are ALL in 'consensus' about global warming climate change?
Which is a lot more complicated than chicken ova and hot water?

Why do I think someone is blowing smoke up my skirt?
