I humbly submit that had you dropped something that weighed 300 lbs on top of the bowlful of eggs, they probably would have broken.
I don't happen to have a 300 lb sheet of glass lying around to test this theory, but I suspect they wouldn't have. If it had a uniform flat surface and they had a soft, giving surface under them, I don't think they would break. In order to break an egg you generally have to apply a sharp sudden pressure at one point, such as whacking them against a sharp corner. Eggs are surprisingly sturdy.
If I come across a 300 lb sheet of glass I'll try it out.
