Too Much Free Time: Diet Coke + Mentos = ???

Apparently dropping a bunch of Mentos into a 2-liter bottle of Diet Coke is all the rage on the Net right now.

In other news, 4th grade science fair projects have shifted from the baking soda volcano to the Peter North moneyshot.

NPR actually has a video of the explosion, which looks like it takes far too much effort for the 45 milliseconds of excitement.

And just to fill out space, the FDA has now approved a monthly injectable form of naltrexone for actively drinking alcoholics.

Geez. A month-long buzz-killing opioid antagonist with the tradename Vivitrol. Sounds like a cross of vivisection and vitriol. But, oh the compliance!
