For the Gullible Among You

Working on a computer of an engineer upstairs this-morning, he regaled me with his tales of a fabulous find on YouTube. Apparently he had seen a video of how someone took some Mountain Dew, baking soda, and hydrogen peroxide and made their own homemade glowstick. I reacted as any normal, intelligent person would: total disbelief. I know you should never trust crap like that, and I could think of no chemical reaction with anything in Mountain Dew, baking soda, or hydrogen peroxide which would cause this. Well, this guy sits in the middle of a large group of engineers, who upon hearing our conversation, begin backing up his story. Well, this one's for you guys.

Epic fail is still failure. Sorry guys, didn't believe you then, don't believe you now.

What a waste of perfectly good Dew!

Well, he looks to only have lost about an ounce, but still, that's definitely a party foul.
