mentos-eruption part 2

a follow-up on my earlier post on the mentos-eruption.... i got so intrigued by it that i went on to search the web and youtube for videos and footages on other people's experiments. (well, i'm not prepared to clear up the sticky mess at home, so no way i'm gonna try it myself... at least not for now)

i'm sure those of us who now know of this mentos-eruption phenomenon would at some point in time be curious about this: is it safe then to consume mentos + cola at the same time?

to that question, has an answer:
"So is it dangerous to drink soda and eat Mentos? Well, a lot of the fizz goes away as you drink. Then when bubbles are released in your stomach, your stomach can expand a bit, and it also has ways of releasing excess pressure. Do not, repeat, do not be stupid and test the limits of your stomach. Don't even think about it....."

as much as i'm curious what would happen if one really consumed these 2 items together, i won't be quite as enthusiastic as this guy who actually experimented on HIMSELF! imagine how dangerous and painful this could be... so i must applaud him for his sheer courage (and insanity) in doing this... hope he's still alive :P
WATCH VIDEO HERE (youtube) - i was holding my breath when he started swallowing those mentos.

kids at home, please do not ever try this on yourself.
