A neat trick to do with an empty or nearly empty soda can.

Step 1: Meterials

You'll need to obtain an empty soda can(Oh, goodie! caffinated goodness!), and about 70 mL of water. The amount doesn't have to be exact, but it has to fill about 1/5 of the can.
<p>This doesn;t even tell you what the trick is until you get down to the comments. I think picking out ANYTHING and asking would be great here. So confusing. XD</p>
*Gasp* hes a wizard!! Get him, so he may teach ua more of hia magic!!
bull. all you have to do is balance it between the 2 edges of the can
It looks really cool when it rolls! Great Job!
could somebody elaborate on the construction and how to do this plzz.......im no the best
Just pour a bit of water into a can and tilt it on its side.<br />
oh, i remember XD, i was talking about the title of materials, that put meterials instead
water... soda can. while drinking the soda you can stop at a point and do this trick too.
(i posted this because SP doesnt matter... dont pick out a single thing about someones instructable and post about it.)
my mom cousin showed me this trick but i thought no one else knew good job
this is funny. you can also make this a bet; show your friend the trick. give them a diffrent soda can. they wont be able to do this.
or you could hot glue a soda can to your table
if you glued it, it would be obvious. like, they would want to pick it up to examine it.
True, but then it wouldnt roll around the table.
i do this all the time, its actually weird because i just showed my dad, and a guy at work this. they were amazed. i would love to just start leaving these around, after you get done with them, to confuse people.
i actually do this at chess tournaments so no one will take my soda. I am the only one there that knows how to do that.
LOL Awesome, actually I was thinking that you could do it with jello mix and then leave it in the fridge so that it gets jello-ey and then they wouldn't fall as easily.
or pour lead in the bottom of one and seal the top back up, and make it a desk object thing
That could work, but the lead might start to solidify in the way down and gather in a place higher than you want it to. I'll try it with lead-free solder (I don't know where to find lead, besides, the solder will be heavy enough) and tell you how it goes.
alright, cool.
Cool. Short, simple and something I've never seen done before.
I WANT MOUNTAIN DEW NOW!!!! thanks a lot. :P
Doesn't everyone?
i do that all the time ... but it is really cool!
I used to do this all the time with my Mountain Dew, but now I just drink it T_T
