Brigid I like your baking soda-vinegar analogy which reminds me that I once booked a punk rock band named Supernova to play at Cubberley Center - I am a concert promoter and artist manager running for City Council. Supernova did a cool version of the Mentos song -- Mentos, which also, or so I hear, make for an interesting science experiment. This 12-second clip they may or may not have played at that show -- it was a while ago. If your parents are cool, they might vote for me.
