How long do you boil eggs?

I put them in the water from cold for about ten minutes(i don't them them any more) to tell if they are hard boiled lift the egg out of the pot and blow on it. if it drys instantly its hard boiled, if it takes a couple of seconds it is soft or semi hardboiled.

to boil eggs, i put them in cold water and then turn the stove on to boil them. i leave them in the water for 15 minutes. when they are done, i run them under cold water. this not only makes it easier to handle the egg, but it also makes peeling the egg alot easier
