The world's largest science experiment was also by far the coolest. Diet Coke and Mentos, nearly 1,500 students, and nothing but explosive fizziness. So next time you decide to go on a diet, remember, a mini one of these is probably taking place inside your stomach. Yay for Big Macs. Boo for diet food.
In Need of Port-a-Potties
Here, you do the math: 155 port-a-potties were set up around Penn State's Beaver Stadium for its annual Blue/White spring football scrimmage. There were 70,000-something fans. That's more than 450 people per potty. With that said, is this report really surprising? We think not. In fact, we consider it a job well done.

Talk about your downer. Daddy Rameses, Rameses XVII, the ram that's been the official UNC mascot for the past five years (no really, he's an actual ram ... not a dude dressed up) was rammed off his throne by his son. Literally. His son, Pablo, head-butted the elder Rameses so hard that his pretty blue horn snapped off. Attaboy!
Remember when you rode your little bicycle without hands for a split second and felt so cool? Well now's your chance to relive that special moment with "Slashbot." Thanks to some Texas A&M students, this way-cooler-than-Guitar-Hero machine thing can churn out tunes just like its counterpart only, you guessed it, without hands. Ha! Check it!
Pop Culture Nugget
Sure, it's been a few years, but American Idol-reject William Hung finally understands why he was such a big deal ... or not a big deal. No more show biz for Mr. "She Bangs." Hung is back in school at UC-Northridge where he's finishing up his double-major in math and education. He's gonna teach others how to be un-cool! How sweet.
Because we can. And we love him. And he rocks at Guitar Hero.
