@meg The boiling point is higher, so yes, the water would take longer to boil, but the eggs would be done much sooner since they are cooked at a higher temperature.

Silly Meg... Actually, while adding salt to the water DOES increases the boiling point,it doesn't make the water boil faster, but it DOES make food cook faster.

Most of these things are old wives' tales. Adding salt to water actually increases its boiling point, so it will take LONGER to boil eggs (or anything) in salted water. Onions make you cry because of sulfurous compounds in the root tip; to avoid tears, don't cut all the way to the root. Also, lemons can be microwaved for a few seconds to better release the juices.
