Its a mis-conception that it only works with diet, diet is only recommended because it is easier to clean up.

Diet Coke is specifically the one used because of all the sodas I've seen it reacts the most powerfully. Has to do with the specific mix of sweeteners. The easier-to-clean-ness is just icing on the cake.

Honestly when I saw the title and the thumbnail, I though it had something to do with boobies and didn't think "Oh, it's a trap"

author

Officially unofficial infinity definitely infinity plus one, :) sorry had to be a smart a$$

author
timothymh made it!(author)2010-02-19

 Officially unofficial infinity definitely certainly positively absolutely infinity plus one

author
tahirhh made it!(author)2010-02-19

infinity plus one  is equal to infinity. So by adding a "plus one" you're not actually changing anything.

so in conclusion

Officially unofficial infinity definitely infinity
is the same as
Officially unofficial infinity definitely infinity plus one

Just thought I should point it out :)

timothymh made it!(author)2010-02-20

 Good point. ... but I had more words anyway :)

This argument can only be won by the way that this instructable beat the youtube video, that is who is hotter. However, all of you are dudes, so no one wins. My two sense on which prank wins, I prefer to hear a hot Latina curse than some white dude!

sorry about that but how do you explain the youtube video

author
giannyl made it!(author)2009-07-11

well..Im sorry about that,I would not say that I stole from your actual video because I have never watched it before;However the mentos-coke thing has never been a secret,so what I did was just MY version of it and I used the same elements and technics of my instructionals videos using needle and thread.
