A Cheaper Firework??

I recently heard about this and just read a story about it on the Internet, so it must be true. 2 men in Maine have created a new version of the bottle rocket, I guess one could say. Apparently what they do is take Mentos and drop them into 2-liter bottles of Diet Coke. When they do, the Mentos shoot several feet into the air. You’ve got to admit; it is cheaper than paying to see a fireworks show or buying a backyard fireworks package.

Speaking of paying to see fireworks, I read a sad story about a little town called Old Fort, North Carolina. It seems they were the victims of a fireworks thief. Someone came in and literally stole the town’s firework’s show. The thief took everything but the grand finale. Man, it’ll be easy to catch that guy when he decides to play with his new loot. Imagine how much fun the police officers that find the fireworks criminal will have when they have to ask, “Is that a rocket in your pocket?”

On that note, have a great Monday. I know for most of us it’s impossible, but try to do so anyway. Thanks also for the flood of comments (that’s if you consider 5 as of this writing to be a flood) after my new post. I appreciate it and keep ‘em coming.
