Boys Boys and Girls with too much time

Question: What do you get when you mix Coke, Mentos, one cardiac nurse, an endocrinologist, a neurologist, a nephrologist and 3 oncologists?

This weekend has been swell. Good friends, old and new, good food, good weather, a barbeque with a bottle-full of lighter fluid and limitless supply of booze. Recipe for a 3-alarm fire. Kinda like Charlton Heston in The Towering Inferno. You wouldn't think that we were a bunch of 30-or-so year old physicians and other professionals. One year, Nick zinged part of his eyebrows. This year, there was this loud whoosh and a mushroom cloud when TS lit the pit.

And then, someone told us of this urban legend about Coke and Mentos. And that's when trouble started.

Answer: Click below to find out.

P/S: Isn't Smirnoff vodka supposed to be flammable if you spit it onto an open fire?

i just heard about this explosive reaction from my local radio announcer this morning while driving home from work. is this merely a coincidence, or is there a campaign of some sort that i am not aware of about this diet coke + mentos science experiment?

My friend tried this before: Mentos into Coke, and then quickly recap, and shake vigorously; then open it up --whalau! the true "ejaculation"! ;)

as for spitting vodka into a flame? probably too high of spit:vodka ratio?

Hello?? Why is this post called "Boys"?? Or have you forgotten the very essential person who threaded the Mentos, AND the person who filmed the deed??
