I just realized I left a whole carton of eggs in a grocery bag on the counter for about four hours. My kitchen is probably 80 degrees today. Are they still safe to use?

the eggs should be fine. i've done that a couple time before.
what i've heard is that in america, we refrigerate eggs because they are thoroughly washed (store bought ones, at least), whereas most other countries they simply wipe off the worst of the muck. the washing removes the protective coating, which is why we refrigerate them. is this right? or am i misinformed?
