    Diet Coke And Mentos Eruption

    Diet Coke And Mentos Eruption

    When you drop Mentos into Diet Coke, it creates a geyser! You may remember this trend from the 2000’s. Interestingly, many different candies will create the same effect in many different sodas, but Diet Coke is often preferable because the clean-up is less sticky. Learn more about how this works with Rachel Teichman, LMSW and Victor Varnado, KSN!

Fun podcast

I enjoy this podcast. The hosts read the articles at a relaxing pace, and their commentary is fun
 although their voice acting skills could improve a lot. Has the podcast considered reading the Jonathan Blow article? He’s doing some highly innovative work
 and has some spicy opinions haha.

Stop The Accents

There a lots of good nuggets of info here in a quick and easily digestible format. However, the “accents” that VV does are incredibly annoying and often border on racist
I’m done with this one after his most recent.

vargisonj ,

Honestly? Cringe.

Goodness are these two even friends?? Absolutely no chemistry, and no thoughtful (or even hot) takes. Just a dry read from two strangers.
