Women. Can't live with them. Can't kill them!

Anyone can dump a couple of Mentos into a 2-liter of Diet Coke for fun. It takes sheer genius to turn it into artistry.

Sure, you could dig up your back issues of Food Hydrocolloids and reread the article about acacia gum and its effects in liquid solutions in Volume 16, Issue 13, pages 257-267. Then you could run the numbers and start thinking about nucleation sites instead.

Or you could just watch this video.

Your call.
