I am soooo going to show this trick to my kids.
A Mentos Poem
by Rachel from Michigan
What can I say about Mentos,
They make my life complete.
They taste nothing like pimentos,
And is why I will eat.......them.
(More about the experiment on Steve Spangler Science).
This is off-topic, but I know how you just love just-so stories.
Evolutionary biologists have traced the origins of laughter back four million years to pre-humans slipping and stumbling in their first faltering attempts to walk on two legs...
This is great! I loved that first movie there, where the poor TV woman got all soaked and he kept popping more and more bottles anyway, while profusely apologizing to her and calling her a mess! Hillarious!
a. note to self: stop at store for Mentos 'n' Diet Coke on the way home
b. another, much less widely known source of eerie flashes of light: get some of those nose-holder-openers, Breathe Right I think...when, in the dark, you pull open the little paper packet holding each strip it flashes green!
c. the above-linked article is nonsense. Humar began with farts.
Space dust and coke works great as well. British comedians Adam & Joe did a smaller scale "experiment" using a prone Adam's mouth as a test tube.
That poem is nice, what about this one.
Coke is fizzy,
Mentos are minty.
Mix them together and they'll get busy!
Like a huge fizz bomb,
