you can make anything glow if you cut open a glow stick and pour it in or on it.

exactly what i was thinking. is the soda actually glowing or is the glowstick stuff just mixed in and glowing?

Does it eventually stop glowing, or does the peroxide and other ingredients keep it going?

Years ago, I used to use the inside of a highlighter to make alcohol bottles glow (after I drank the alcohol of course) but had to have my black light on in order to get the glow affect.

That's a clever commentary on the dangers posed by sugary soft drinks. Or it's an accident waiting to happen. Either way, it certainly looks cool.

It couldn't taste any worse than regular Mountain Dew.

Joking aside, putting chemicals in food containers is just asking for trouble. I work at a household hazardous waste site and I couldn't even begin to count the times people bring in some horrible crud in a food container that they never got around to, or just didn't bother labelling. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for engaging in irresponsible and potentially hazardous activities, just keep things within reason and avoid creating potential hazards for others. Play safe, folks.

Bad choice of bottle

Considering hydrogen peroxide can kill you I wouldn't recommended drinking it. Perhaps the uploader should put this in his title. Because there are a lot of morons out there who would try to drink this.
