Now THAT's Performance Art! [Jun. 5th, 2006|01:07 pm]
I've seen people do all sorts of boring things under the guise of "performance art". But THIS... This is art. Fun and coordinated performance, with a Mr Wizard twist.

Coke and Mentos Fountains

A backyard reproduction of the famous Bellagio fountain show by two guys and a lot of 2-liter sodas. Damn cool!

Thanks to Slashdot, patch_bunny, and diadexxus for the story and link.

Normally, I'd say someone had too much free time on their hands...but I'll gladly let is slide when they yield such impressive results!

We did that on Funday Pawpet Show back around easter. Remember, works best with Diet Coke :>

Sweet. I'm assuming the pawpets were at a safe distance to avoid dry cleaning bills? :) I hadn't even heard of this trick until I saw this link!

Finally got around to doing it yesterday. 4 Mentos nearly emptied a 20oz bottle.

Wow. :D

[Brer] Now I want to see someone do performance art with Dave Barry's Pop-Tart Blow-Torch experiment...
