Diet Pepsi and Mentos


Time for a theoretical feat in engineering.

Ok, you have and endless supply of Diet Pepsi and Mentos, and all the other materials you need to make it work.

You can solve the worlds energy problem. But better than me? Not a chance.




Ok, your turn.

You started the 3 things thread too, eh? You are making a playground for members like Elcid and Andy and I couldn't be happier.

We need some more threads like this lately since we have had so many crapass threads with people re-posting the same stupid sh!t. I'm tired of those threads and tired of reading people being flamed over it although it can be humorous at times.

Instead of wasting plastic, why not have a huge supply of Coca-Cola in a large dispensers in parallel, it fills into a chamber, Mentos are released through a tube, then the pressure is let out via the only port, an impeller that drives a turbine.

Oh yeah, and for all the CO2 that is released, you'd house the whole thing in a nice atrium environment with lots of trees that would process the CO2 and give off O2.

Green, baby!

I win.
