    I read somewhere that the combination of Diet Coke and Mentos (you know, the freshmaker) are pretty explosive. I don't remember where I heard this, but I know you can only believe about .000003% of what you read on the interweb.

    With that knowledge in mind I decided to find out for myself. I purchased a 2 liter (litre for you brits) of Diet Coke and a box of Mentos. From what I understood, emptying the entire roll of Mentos into said Cola would produce an explosive jet. Sadly, I couldn't find a roll of Mentos and had to fashon a tube out of looseleaf paper.

    So with 2 liter on the ground, I poured the Mentos into the opening and Sweet Jesus does it work. I was hoping to have a few seconds to get to safe ground before the fountain of Cola started, but it happens almost right away.

    It produced a 7 foot spray of Cola straight into the air (the Mentos stayed in the bottle in case you were wondering). After the jet died, there was only about an inch of liquid left in the bottom.

    I didn't have time to photograph the event but will try to do so the next time. In the meantime, I highly suggest you try this yourself. It's fairly interesting, cheap and fun in a very dumb way.

    A word of note. Try to convince someone else to dump the Mentos in. The spray will almost certainly hit them. I would suggest lying and say that they have a few seconds between dropping the Mentos and the ejection of tasty Diet Cola beverage.

    From what little I read, it seems to work better with Diet Coke. People seem to think that the brand Coke gives the best results, however I have no scientific proof to back this up. No idea why diet soda works so well.

    EDIT: Reply to below...

    I wasn't very clear. I have heard that diet soda works better than regular. No idea why. I encourage people to experiment, but for the results I achieved Diet Soda worked like a charm.

    Hehehe mofo, me and my brother discoverd this 7 years ago, its so awesome eh! And the reason why you use Diet Cola is because Diet Cola has Aspertain in it and is more Carbonated then regular Cola, so BAM!

    However me and my brother wrapped the Menthoes up in paper towel and droped them in and had enough time to screw on the cap and run for our lives.

    The Best way to do it is to do this:
    Cut a small hole in the soda top
    Take a paper clip, bend it straight, and then stick as many mentos as you can on it, i could fit like 10
    Put the paper clip through the cap, so that the mentos would be inside the bottle if you closed it, and then hold the little piece of metal on the top
    Dump out enough soda so that you can close the bottle and they wouldn't touch the soda
    then drop em in, now you have a contained flow of soda, i did this is in my lunchroom, sprayed everyone....it's awesome

    I know those directions are weird as hell too without images, so do your best
