The boys from are back with another video demonstrating the combustible combination that is Diet Coke + Mentos.
But this time, click Coke has come along for the fun.
BL Ochman has more, including the back story.
This Experiment No. 214 is certainly a hoot, though there have to be questions about whether the effort [...]

While my pal Ed Lee is spending his Halloween ruminating over 24 and PR comings and goings up in Toronto, I thought I’d blog about something truly useful: namely, an entertaining alternative for conducting your web searches!
