Can you eat boiled eggs that float?

Chef's answer
If the egg sinks, it is fresh. If it tilts upwards or even floats, it is old. This is because as an egg ages, the small air pocket inside it grows larger as water is released and replaced by air. ... An egg can sink and still be bad, while an egg that floats may still be fine to eat (3).
