Little murder things jumping out of sodas

    Does anyone else notice the shower/dance of particles or whatever that develop when you just pour a can of soda out? It's accompanied by the trademark sounds of soda freshly poured as well. Sprite is the worst. You put your face up close enough and it'll rip off your skin causing massive amounts of blood loss. Or well, close to it. Does anyone know what's going on when that happens? Possible military applications?

    Ack, are the "funniest" member awards coming up again? :cry:

    (P.S. try freshly poured Vernor's -- especially if you can get it from a fountain instead of a bottle)

    Nucleation is one of those tiny things that astound me. Looked it up on Wiki and stopped reading once I saw the math at "mechanics of nucleation."

    I notice the particles more often in Ginger Ale for some reason. Diet Coke too.

    I am wondering about the layer of muck in the bottom of my coffee cup. It is always a thick muddy bog and I can only imagine what that stuff is doing to my Colon.

    Oh. I always breathe them. Especially the ginger ale ones.

    :rofl:

    But in all seriousness, I don't drink soda. That means I'm safe from the murderous particles that fly out of soda! :uhh:

    You'd think.

    But no, if you frequent any public places you are still subject to second-hand murderous flying soda particles.

    and then soda drinkers that lack soda hygiene (and must soda drinkers do) further propagate its spread through third-hand contact. It's very important that you wash your hands before handling children if you've just drank a soda.

    I only have two hands, so nobody has to worry about this from me.

    You must first close your two hands before you can open your third-

    oh wait, that was eyes.

    Don't you hate it when you find a typo in your post after someone has already quoted it? I hate that more than the little murder things that jump out of sodas!

    So how do you open your car when you grocery bags in both left and right hand? :bugeye:

    To stay on the safe side, I recommend you drink beer instead. Only gentle loving foam comes out to greet you. And you still get the trademark sound as your significant other pours it for you. Barrington's Brutal is the best. You put your face up close enough and you can smell the health benefits. What goes on after that is between the cup and the lip. I think the Vikings used to prepare for battle with a few flagons of beer.
