How to Mix An Exploding Drink
Steve Springer challenges the Mentos ice cube prank, popularize on WIRED magazine. For some of you, this Mythbusters-like experiment will come as no surprise. Shake things up (ha. ha...) with this exploding drink concoction. Sure to challenge your friends' conception of the bubbly.
Except...it doesn't work.
That's right. Turns out the prank is nothing but a hoax.
But don't despair! Springer then adjusts the experiment, taking out the ice cubes and ~voila~ instant reaction! Time to put on your mad scientist cap.
