    That's awesome. Why waste all that money buying fireworks when you can have a soda fountain? Plus, it gets rid of all that diet soda you bought and will never use.

    Did it some time ago.

    The dern thing shot about 15 feet in the air. Scared the bejesus out of my daughter.

    It would be much better if you could somehow still have the cap attached with a small hole in the top. It seems that the stream would shoot higher and for a longer amount of time.

    That's actually an urban myth.
    It's not possible.


    Ashley, I'll mail you as many packs of mentos as you can handle if you send me a small bottle of authentic Scotch wiskey.

    i saw something like this a while back.

    except it wasn't an erruption, they made it into a rocket instead.

    EDIT: this is the best example i could find http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHtpT...soda%20rockets

    The trick appears to be in dropping many in at once. I think if you did one at a time the results would be less then stellar. So, I would suggest the rolled up tube or a vial, etc. Small PVC pipe maybe.

    You can do it more than once with the same bottle, although it's not as spectacular.

    only 40 cm... I guess I made some mistakes: the mentos candies got sticky because of the hot weather, so they were deformed when they entered the bottle (and sticking together). And maybe a 1,5liter bottle is just a bit too small.

    Good stuff.
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy
