(i'm usually the one behind the camera - this & the colormatching post are extreme rarities!)
If you wondered at all (and good on ya if you didn't!) what the context of the t-shirt quote was last week, this was it: a 5th grade shield volcano project and a family discussion surrounding the containment/clean-up of a small eruption from the volcano in science class. The t-shirt post was also the lucky lure the brought my better half out of lurkerville with this comment: "It's a paper mache volcano...it's supposed to be messy. Is it me? 'Hey-a little Guisseppe, take-a these-a paper towels to Vesuvius...and-a sop up some-a dat a hot lava...so's we don die a fiery, eh-petrified death-a.' Paper towels around a volcano...it just lacks any real...realism." You're a keeper, W!
After we tested the 17th round of mint mentos & diet coke* to get just the right combo, guess which spouse got to roll their eyes at the other spouse about the containment requirements? ... And we all lived happily ever after as Peanutman went off to school with garbage bags and newspapers to put under his shield volcano.... just sayin'.
*from mythbusters - you'll get a big eruption if you leave the diet coke IN the bottle and drop 1 mento into it. However, Peanutman poured his diet coke into the container in the center of his volcano. Doing it that way required 9 mentos dropped into 1 cup of s-l-o-w-l-y poured diet coke (so you don't lose the carbonation) - you'll get a dribble-over-the-top foamy fizz with this method.
