I had a pneumothorax due to being involved in an auto accident. The crash was a frontal impact type. I was knocked unconscious, but do remember a very heavy feeling on my chest. There was no fractured rib. I actually don't know why it collapsed.

Frying the eggs should kill the bacteria, but I would wash them with soap and water before cracking the shells. Boiling should be all right, but I'm not sure. Packs of surgical instruments to be sterilized are placed in an autoclave where they are subjected to steam under pressure for a specified period, something like 40 minutes. That ensures all bugs are killed. Anything less is considered too risky. So, I have to wonder if four or five minutes in boiling water is really sufficient to kill salmonella.
