    reading the title I thought it had something to do with drugs.

    but this gives me an idea:

    this is probably a guy question that might not be understood by women... How many diet cokes will it take to make this picture happen? I`m about 180lbs.

    I-See-U:

    There have been women learning science/natural philosophy for a very long time. There were women teaching in universities in ancient Greece who would have been able to understand your question if someone explained what diet Coke was to them.

    Short version: WTF?

    To answer your question, a quick look at the results of experiments implies that the answer is that it`s impossible. There`s an interesting page about some experiments here

    The conclusion regarding Coke rockets is:

    [quote">Mentos and Diet Coke Rockets?

    Sorry, folks. It won`t work. Using 75-degree diet coke, my best nozzle and 12 mentos the highest thrust I recorded was 1.6-pounds. I assume that this could be increased to perhaps as high as 2-pounds by optimizing the nozzle design but that`s about it. Considering that a 2-liter bottle of diet Coke weighs over 4-pounds, twice the maximum possible thrust, I have to conclude that this idea isn`t going to work.[/quote">

    Although heating the Coke did provide more thrust. Perhaps if you could superheat diet Coke it might be possible to construct something that would briefly lift more than its own weight, but

    (i) that would be very difficult
    (ii) it would be extremely dangerous
    (iii) you`d never be able to accelerate 180lbs plus the weight of the kit to anything like the escape velocity for Earth
    iv) If you could, the force of accelerating you enough with such a short period of thrust would kill you.

    I may have been overstating the case with women in ancient Greece. There were women teaching natural philosophy back then, but on reflection I don`t think that they would have made the necessary step from "applies a force" to "might possibly be used for propulsion." I`m basing that on the fact that a natural philosopher in ancient Greece invented a steam engine but nobody realised that it could be used for anything.

    But I-See-U`s comment is obvious bullpoo nowadays and has been since at least the beginning of the industrial revolution. Once the idea of an engine to move things became common knowledge, people could make the connection between thust from a different kind of engine and motion.

    But seriously, I-See-U, you could ask that question at a time when there are women who are bona fide rocket scientists? I say again, WTF?

    Now I`m curious about the g-force required.

    Escape velocity from Earth is about 11.2Km/s. Damn, that`s a lot.

    A diet coke and mentos reaction lasts for about 3s. Obviously not constant thrust, but for a rough answer I`ll consider average thust over that period.

    The acceleration required would be ~3730m/s^2, which is about 380g.

    You wouldn`t just be dead. You`d be quite flat.

    It would actually be worse, since the thrust isn`t constant over those 3 seconds - it`s initially higher. You might hit 500g.

    @I-See-U

    You are right - I don`t understand. Do you want to strap yourself to a giant coke bottle, or are you talking about drinking an excessive amount of coke and then sticking a mentos up your b-hole?

    Forgive me if it`s a stupid question, but I work in a hospital, and some of the `experiments` people do with their bodies never ceases to amaze me -- especially when it`s related to orifices. And don`t tell me you "fell on it" - I`m not going to believe you.

    lol. so many politically correct wannabes out here. Trying to justify everything as being unisex. Yea, yea, equal rights, equal pay, all that is the good stuff that i believe in too, but my post has nothing to do with it.

    Some people are just too quick to pull the trigger when they dont understand.

    go take a look at some fail videos on youtube 80 percent of the stupid Sh*t that goes on is done by men.

    Men behave differently than women and that is a fact. Like a boy daring another boy to eat a tadpole, they other boys manliness comes into question and he will probably do it. But if a boy asks a girl a question she will just look at him and think hes is just stupid, (not saying that some girls wont do it) but you get the picture (well, at least some of you do)

    To the punks who are trying to convince yourself that a penis and a puss are one and the same: pull your trousers down and take a good look.

    a female is built to be the one who gets pregnant so they tend to take less risk than males.

    A man wants to sleep with every woman, but woman doesn`t want to sleep with every man. Because if they have a kid the man wont have to carry it for 9 months. The risk factor is different for both sexes.

    this is the basic core difference between the male and female way of thinking, and yes, it effects every aspect of daily life.

    yea women should have the same rights as men and they can do everything a man can, but it doesn`t mean Males and Females are the same thing or go about doing things in the same way.


    By the way, not expecting you unisex mofos to understand this.

    You bring amusement to other people, like a court jester. It`s a worthwhile thing. You talk nonsense about how we should acknowledge differences by pretending that men are all the same and women are all the same. In a post, you can`t caper in a silly manner like your medieval counterparts did in their employers` halls, but you do something similar with text.
