You’ve probably seen the many online videos of Fritz Grobe and Stephen Voltz using Mentos and Coke to make geysers. Well, now, the two have come up with a vehicle of sorts that uses the same, um, “technology” to fuel it. Since the contraption only traveled 220 feet (and looked like it had the momentum of that rock thing they move in the “sport” of curling) and since it looks like it used a lot of Coke Zero and hundreds of Mentos for such a short ride, I don’t think it’ll put the Saudis, the other Gulf State sheiks, and Mr. Ahmadinejad (and friend, Chavez) outta biz anytime soon. But, hey, it’s a start . . . and seemingly more of a start than we’ve seen from most since 9/11. In case you wondered, the video is directed by Rob Cohen, director of “The Fast & the Furious” movie.
