    And for those of you asking, the device he uses to poke holes in the eggs is called an egg piercer. I couldn't find the exact one he's using, but here's one on Amazon http://amzn.to/2Ei3iZ5. Here's what it does https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_piercer.

    Выносливость, трудолюбие и упорство - эти качества присущи нашему герою! Но он живёт на работе, не каждому это дано. Успехов вам !

    Вот блядь, смотришь на людей, ебашат, но делают свое дело, возможно совершенствуют, без всяких взяток налоговой, пожарной, санэпид и прочей пиздобратии. Посвящают себя делу, а тут вроде бы и хотел, так тебе же не дают и не дадут...
    Эх, попробовать хоть раз рамм-эн 😔

    He's a hard working man and that's very admirable, but quality overrules quantity so if he ever gets less working hours I think he should focus on improving his shop rather than open up another one.
