Cooking them makes them more bio-available.
My grandfather used to eat a raw egg with his breakfast every morning... more or less. He'd have a "minute egg" - my grandmother would set a pot of water on the stove, turn it off when it boiled, drop an egg in, and leave it in the steamy-hot (not boiling) water for a minute or two, max. Then my grandpa would eat it. It was basically a 95% raw, warm egg. I found it gross, but he never had any ailments from doing this!

I don't eat many eggs. Maybe 3 a week? Recently I bought some goose eggs. Now THAT's a yolk! I don't know if I can ever go back to chicken eggs.

Anywhere from none to 2 dozen, depending on what I want that week. Usually fried in bacon grease and butter, but occasionally I'll make fauxritos or portomelettes.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

Depends on the week.
Sometimes I can get through 20 a week, sometimes 8-10. If I've got a freezer-cleaning op going on (my freezer is almost 100% meat with some frozen berries), then I usually don't buy eggs, as meat is readily available.
Probably average at 10.
Perfection is entirely individual. Any philosophy or pursuit that encourages individuality has merit in that it frees people. Any that encourages shackles only has merit in that it shows you how wrong and desperate the human mind can get in its pursuit of truth.
I get blunter and more narcissistic by the day.
I'd apologize, but...

3 or 4 a day, on days when I don't get my eggs I don't feel right. I love them so much I got my own hens. I need more hens. I call them sunset eggs, not sunny side up, because of the deep orange yolks. With salt and cayenne.
