And they told me pop rocks and coke is bad!

And to explain what is happening, the special coating of mentos uses some type of sugar which when placed with soda, tends to make the bond that the pressure injected carbon dioxide that sticks to the water (soda) molecules very very weak and causes all the carbon dioxide to disattach from the molecules at once. Same thing happens when you shake the soda bottle and the bonds break as well. This just makes it instant. Still spooky and makes me never want to drink soda and mentos at the same time.

I did this a long time ago, im my junior high school science class.

My teacher didn't believe it would work, so he invited me to do it inside of his classroom. Hilarity ensued.

Thats easy. Take two index cards. Take the first and roll it into a cylinder that fits into the soda bottle mouth. Then make two slots in the middle of it on both sides without cutting the whole tube in half. Then take the other card and cut it so it slides into the tube slots all the way thru. Then make a small hole in the second card and tie some rope, thread, or fishing line to it. Place the tube with the card into the soda bottle, then place the mentos in the tube so that the 2nd card is holding them above the soda. Finally, move to a safe distance and pull the card outta the tube using the rope.

Am I the only one that thinks that the background music is *really* annoying?

I'm going to have to try this tomorrow.

In relation to the developers, developers, developers - I would constantly get kicked out of computer classes in middle school for playing that when i was supposed to be doing math blaster or something.

Does it have to be diet coke, or will any soft drink work?

From what i heard diet soda is less stickier(sp).

Less sugar stuff in it. Sugar makes the drink sticky (Like molasses)
