Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in soda bottles
and capping it up - leaving it on lawns. When you go to pick up the trash,
and the bottle is shaken just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it
builds up a gas and explodes with enough force to remove some of your

I think it needs to be the diet if I recall.
I did a few times myself
