This Weekend: Treat Your Friends to an "Exploding" Soda

Ok, maybe this isn't really an adventure but I thought it was hilarious. Wired has a great "how to" for creating an exploding drink by freezing Mentos candy into ice cubes and then adding the cubes to a glass of pop. Wired created a Manhattan (my grandmother's favorite cocktail) for this prank but it would work just as well with plain ol' Diet Coke. If you haven't seen what happens when you mix Mentos and Coke, click here, otherwise I know you're already giggling.
