I thought this was pretty cool how they coordinated all the stuff....They also explain how it was done, and other experiments on their site as well as some bloopers.....

But I will say...DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME

I don't have Quicktime at work, but just from reading the description on the website I think I really need to check this out tonight.

Things that go SPLOOSH! or BOOM! are cool. ;-D

Another thing that works is regular coke or pepsi (i think maybe it is diet) and then doing winterfresh lifesavers...its the exact same effect just different chemicals...if your going to do this drill a hole in the cap...set the mentos/lifesaver in the cap and quickly screw it on. ;-D

Actually it's the same chemicals...
My chem teacher did this in class once. He got coke all over the floor and he set up buckets and towels too.

What's happening is all the Carbon Dioxide in the coke is released very very quickly due to the presence of the mentos (catalyst). Then the pressure forces the coke out.

I'm sure mercer (the cafe chemist) can confirm.

Yeah, that's right...you know, Kari Byron did this exact same experiment in the FHM she was in last month. ;-D :L

Here's one of me doing a similarly explosive reaction...except I was using 35% Hydrogen Peroxide (roughly 3.5 times stronger than the stuff you buy as an antiseptic 8-o), Potassium Iodide, and soap. :-b

(note that the graduated cylinder ends about 8 inches from the top of the reaction...and it was only halfway through at this point...it seriously looked like an atom bomb when it was done)

Ha, yeah, the paper towels...I didn't expect the reaction to be as violent as it was. That's the funny part. Shortly after that was taken, I jumped back about 5 feet because it went all over the front of the cabinet and past the paper towels onto the box of gloves. :-b :-B :-B
