Pepsi-Cola hits the spot

One of the few semi-pleasant memories of my 2016 hospital was the ubiquity of the little not-quite-two-quart plastic sippy-ish cup; I liked it enough to buy a couple of them from Amazon after I got home. Yesterday, upon the arrival of dinner (Johnnie’s), I dumped the balance of a previously-opened bottle of the aforementioned soda into the cup, popped open the freezer, grabbed two ice cubes, watched as one of them fell back into the bin, and verified Newton’s f=ma equation experimentally: apparently the mass of that second cube hit the surface of the soda with exactly enough acceleration to force a small quantity of liquid upwards, descending at precisely the rate necessary to land on my left eye.

Wonder if this works with Dr Pepper.
