Whenever I see the diet coke and mentos things I always wonder about the fella who first discovered it. Was he eating a mento and drinking diet coke? What kind of crazy vomiting gas did this cause?

Really? A video from 2006 that has already been her multiple times?

Never gets old. Well, it might if they ran it on tv every New Year's or something.

True, but the videos for those previous submissions have been removed.

What a f*cking waist of time and money for such a stupid effect.

That's fair. It is a good video, and at least the article accompanying it is new.

The last part makes me think of a very sugary Bellagio fountain.
 
2012-11-09 04:23:16 PM
And by sugar, I meant sticky since they use artificial sweetener.

Those guys really wanted to be internet-famous. They must have spent a shiat load of money on soda, garden hose attachments, mentos, etc.

Bet you guys have never seen this one...Link

Underwhelming. Would have been better from an overhead angle.

There's a Chinese kid going to bed with a belly full of calories because you guys decided to waste 100 bottles of Diet Coke for a YouTube video. Well, I hope you're happy. What's next? Going to ask some quadriplegics to dance for us?

Sweet. Let me know when you post it.

Ok. So you must be the mod who responded "thanks. deleted" when I reported the sparrow on a wiper post as a dup, but then since I also noted the the earlier vid had been taken down for copyright violation you wound up keeping it and labeling it a REPEAT.

I think the whole FARK policy on repeats is too black and white - repeats are are always deleted with a link to the earlier unless some god comes in and allows it without the link to the earlier.

A better way to handle a "good repeat:" (however that is defined) would be to include in the comments from the earlier discussions. Such merging could also help in the submission queue where the same story is submitted from multiple sources and only one thread with comments is greened. [I have working experience with databases to know that such inclusions are technically possible however I can only guess about how the FARK db is arranged and whether such inclusions would be trivial or painful.]

Bathia, if you disagree with me then I will rue the day I introduced you to NoSquint and made you all or more seeing.

Dear io9, your slogan is "we come from the future". Please inform your time-machine technician that he has it wired up backwards.

Waste of Diet Coke? What else are they going to do with it, drink it?? Yeah right, like anyone is fool enough to drink such toxic liquids.
 
2012-11-10 03:44:37 AM
well, for everyone who has their underwear in an uproar about the repeat, I have never seen it, and I enjoyed it, so... Go be anal about rules elsewhere. please.

I bet the Coca-Cola corporation loves this.
Has anyone tried this with non-Coke products? I bet it works just the same.
Quick everybody, go buy a bunch of Coca-Cola and spray it in the air and on the ground!
/yay!

Bad news. I think they said it was 250 something bottles of coke. And 1500 something mentos.

Apparently Diet Coke, specifically, is the best.

Was I the only one who saw the pile of logs and thought oh, that's a good stack of firewood.
