The steaks are marinading, the potatoes are roasting, the peas await their face-to-face with boiling water . . . I sip on my Jack Daniels and contemplate the Ernie Ells 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon breathing its last over there on the shelf with the two glasses waiting thirstily. 23 minutes until dinner - watching Pointless, then The Middle or Big Bang Theory until 9:15 when Spurs play West Ham. That should spoil a pleasant evening.

Maybe - it was a thank-you gift for a friend who gave us two bottles of wine (not good wine though) in an hour of need. But you know . . . lock-down, Covid . . . I'm drinking it.

LR - Spurs defied the odds last night. Changed the game plan from lose/draw to win. Surprised the absent crowd no end. 2-0 win. Season: Won 12 Drew 9 Lost 10. That's not a good line - average to poor for a club of their stature.

Were one to swallow a few Mentos whole then chug some coke how far out the nose would spray shoot? Would the ears be involved?

The spray might shoot out a person's ass and launch someone into orbit. I guess it would depend on the amounts ingested.

I seem to recall the Mythbusters doing something with this myth/urban legend using Pop Rocks, Diet Coke, and a pig's stomach.  They then later revisited it with the actual Mentos and Diet Coke.

Since the stomach is intended to expand, it wouldn't rupture, so they had to call it busted.

Yes, I suppose I could agree with you ... but then we'd both be wrong, wouldn't we?
