Funny in a twisted kind of way, but it does make you wonder what kind of strange reaction is taking place.
I can't deliver UTOPIA, but I can create a HELL for you to LIVE in :)DoD:(
I was going to suggest the same thing...a hazardous diet of soda and pop rocks. How sad...Originally posted by SGB

Didn't they already do some cheesy b-grade movie about this? You know, the new Bond guy played a bomb squad guy going through a divorce and someone invents something you drink and it interacts with stomach acid and makes you go boom.Originally posted by Duke Of Dystopia
I wonder if this will lead to any insights into spontaneous human combustion?
I didn't read the article because I'm at work....but the Myth Busters all but busted the myth of pop rocks and exploding stomach's.....last year......anyone else see that episode.......they used a pigs stomach....

Oh, this would make a great screenplay. Perhaps.....
OPENING SCENE ("Spirit In The Sky" playing in background)
Pan to earth. Pan to Europe. Pan to Hamburg, Germany. Pan to pond. Pan to frog. Frog burps and explodes. Pan back a bit and you see flashes of other frogs exploding, as you hear their burps.
Scientists in Atlanta's Center for Disease Control are listening to a wild-eyed foreigner, trying to explain "exploding frogs". Pan to scientists, trying to hold back their laughter. Pan to the radio in the corner, tuned to Rush Limbaugh. Rush is saying something like, "Wait....wait just a second, my friends. Oh, this has gotta be a liberal hoax....frogs.....yes, that's right. frogs, are supposedly exploding in Germany." Pan to scientists, looking at radio.....the smiles on their faces diasappearing.
On so forth. A great idea for a screenplay.

It's all a CIA plot I tell you! They're trying to create a secret weapon by crossing the exploding toads with poison art frogs.
