Coup de grace of pranks. ok not really...

Got the prank off Wired. Essentially you freeze some mentos in ice cubes, put it in your diet coke and once the mentos is exposed to the soft drink it will go off like your mom when she found out it was you that peed on the side of the house when you found it impossible to reach the bathroom in your inebriated state last night, hypothetically. But there is much skepticism about the prank working because of the degassing of the pop and the dissolving of cavities on the outer coating (the point of nucleation) on the mentos when it is put in the water. But if it does fail, one can garnish your friend's glass with a live hand grenade and see how that goes.

Haha, that seems like a fun prank. I remember when everyone went crazy for this trick.

My friends were always doing it. It's fun and all, but all I noticed was that we wasted a perfectly fine 2L of Diet coke and multiples rolls of Mentos (I'm Asian, and it's a waste!). I'd rather play with the old baking soda/vinegar trick. So much...cooler?
