This is a bomb made out of a glad tupperware container, soda, mentos, and paper towels. This is not very expensive and building one only takes a couple of minutes...

Step 1: What You Need
1. Glad circular 1/2 cup interlocking lid plastic tupperware container.
2. Can of Coke
4. Paper Towels
Step 2: Fill the Tupperware Container
Fill the tupperware container almost all the way full with coke (look at picture).
Step 3: Cover the Tupperware Container
Cover the tupperware container with a paper towel. leave some room at the edge of the container so that a couple mentos could easily slip through. (see picture)
Pull the paper towel taught so that it doesn't get wet with coke.
Step 4: Place the Mentos
To make sure the paper towel is taught, place rocks at all the corners that are on the ground. Then place three mentos on the top of the paper towel...It now doesn't matter if the paper towel gets wet, it only matter if the mentos don't get wet. (see picture)
Step 5: Now Place the Top on the Bomb!
Place the cover on the tupperware container. Make sure when you put the cover on that the paper towel is still taught. (see picture)
Step 6: Activating the Bomb
To activate the bomb just tip the container so that all three mentos fall into the soda through the little hole between the edge of the paper towel and the edge of the container.
Step 7: The Explosion
Quickly (in the next 3 seconds) place the bomb and get out of the way.
It doesn't make a big explosion but sure makes a mess!
Have fun sabotaging you brothers, sisters, and friends!!!
You can also do the same exact thing in a bigger container with more soda and mentos!!!
