Introduction: How to Build a Mentos and Diet Coke Booby Trap

We've all seen how Diet Coke explodes when you put Mentos in it. Here's a way to rig a bottle of Diet Coke so that it explodes when you unscrew the cap

Holy moly that gal is hot

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

jlanglie (author)batman962011-11-04

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.

Chromatica (author)2009-07-11
She stole this from another person on youtube. This was made on Feb. 2, 2007. Her's Jun. 3, 2008

branonls (author)Chromatica2009-08-06

She may have stole it but her victim was much better looking.

lutin (author)branonls2009-08-12

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"

iminthebathroom (author)lutin2011-01-06

uh yeah, its a boobie-trap

KnexFreek (author)lutin2010-01-21

 LOL it says TRAP in the title dummy!

jules15 (author)lutin2009-11-04


Asuraku (author)lutin2009-10-31

 It still could be a 'trap'.

 Definitely Infinity

Wesley666 (author)opanocat52009-12-14

Officially unofficial infinity definitely infinity...BEAT THAT!

noname420 (author)Wesley6662010-02-19

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

timothymh (author)noname4202010-02-19

 Officially unofficial infinity definitely certainly positively absolutely infinity plus one

tahirhh (author)timothymh2010-02-19

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 (author)tahirhh2010-02-20

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

ronmaggi (author)timothymh2010-09-02

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!

Arano (author)tahirhh2010-02-27

but x^2<x^3 for x=infinity

noname420 (author)Arano2010-02-27

Arano is right x^2<x^3 like x^4>x^3,  *x=infinity*

Fashim (author)tahirhh2010-02-24

Yep Infinity^Infinity=infinity

ATG (author)branonls2009-08-10

lol yea totally....

yumann (author)branonls2009-08-09

Her victim was MUCH better looking, INDEED, :D (To do first or to do better : that is the question.)

Chromatica (author)Chromatica2009-07-11

and here too. She even commented on the comment board of the instructable.

sorry about that but how do you explain the youtube video

giannyl (author)Chromatica2009-07-11

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.

Thundertydus (author)giannyl2009-07-15

Just thread it through a whole pack with an open top, Go big or go home!

Artanus (author)Chromatica2009-07-30
