Cola Fountain picture
Students at Changchun University set a new world record after setting off 2,175 simultaneous cola fountains using bottles of cola and Mentos. Following a countdown, mints dropped into cola bottles to set off the chemical reaction, resulting in cola eruptions that reached almost 8 meters high. After the eruption, students poured cola on each other, naturally.
The university secured sponsorship to provide 2,600 raincoats and ordered 2,450 packs of mints from a local supermarket. The 2,175 cola fountains broke the record of 1,911 simultaneous geysers, set on June 19, 2008, by students in Latvia. A waste of soda? Heck no. Just think about all the sperm these crazy kids saved.
