Poached eggs are a type of coddled egg

A former CIA recruit named Robert Wallace and a historian named H. Keith
Melton wrote a book, entitled The Official CIA Manual of Trickery and
Deception. One of the tricks explained in the book was how old agents
communicated with each other during the Cold War without even speaking a
word out loud, making a head motion or a hand gesture. The communication
technique is known as shoelace communication. So, what does that mean
exactly? Well, instead of saying things like “Come with me” or “I have some
crucial information you need to hear” agents “spoke” to each other through
the way they tied their shoelaces. For example, there were three ways they
could tangle up the laces and the three patterns meant “I have information”,
“Follow me” and “I have brought another person”. This way the agents were
able to communicate amongst each other without raising any suspicion.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

I didn't know any one.

However, about q8, if one is just a single sub variety of the other then considering both as equals is a fallacy in logic. :)
