Make the mento stick to the inside of the cap using a tiny piece of gum or tape, then put the cap on the bottle. After a minute or so, the mento should fall down into the soda
Did this with gum to one bottle and managed to get the cover closed as it was exploding.

Results were a bit disappointing. I was hoping that there would be enough pressure in the bottle because of the mentos to the point where the bottle would literally explode. It did not. Oh well, at least I know the answer to this question that Iíve wondered about for years.

Had a bunch of bottles and used @YitzySís recommended contraption to cause the soda to explode. Kids had a blast!

Thanks for sharing the result! And now your kids already have their first science project for the next school year done for them

Okay, I'll post one of those. From an old Techbargains email: spot the difference!

Windows PRO vs Home can usually be ~$100 difference. How about the SSD? Weight?

Pro comes more or less free with work laptops with a "$2041" MSRP. The real question is why the G15 is $1149 and the Vostro is $2041.
In my notes, the difference is "plastic versus metal, 3 yrs versus 1 yr, 1 M2 versus 2 M2s, 4 hours versus 12 hours, and about 2lbs in weight." Agav the hardware in the G15 performs significantly better than the hardware in the Vostro, because the lean build works against the cooling. That's why I opted for my Swift X versus this computer (which was an option at the time) - the cooling is stupendous. (A friend had bought the Vostro - without consulting me, of course - and we ran tests converting large 4K videos versus my computer, which has the lower TDP 15W Ryzen 7 5800U with the same eight cores. His took 80 minutes and mine took 90 minutes. His computer throttled down to 3.8 GHz on all cores, mine to 3.5GHz - even though his official minimum is 3.0 and mine is 1.9.)

Just spotted Gateway laptops in Micro Center.
History: Gateway was a budget laptop and desktop manufacturer (back when Acer was also). They upped their game when they bought eMachines. Then they were bought by Acer in 2007. Shortly afterwards, the brand disappeared. That is, until a few years ago, when (my understanding is) that Wall Mart licensed the name for use making the same laptops which had been sold at Walmart under other names. So what happened now? Are they the same computers at Micro Center? It seems that way from the specs...

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

If they worked for a long time with the frum community they may have a lot of anecdotal evidence and can weigh in on whether or not speaking certain languages predisposes specific speech problems.
