I am afraid that is a hoax. :(

@Dutchess_III that would depend solely on the quality and volume of the radioactive material used

SNiff. Well, I guess I’ll find out and let you know the results!

My apology for bursting the bubble, or in this case, dimming the light:

The notion that mixing small amounts of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide into some Mountain Dew soda will produce a brilliantly glowing solution is a Fool’s Errand, a bit of flimflammery intended to send the gullible out to fulfill an absurd and impossible task. The glowing Mountain Dew jape circulated on the Internet in 2007 in the form of a video clip…, and it made the rounds on Facebook in 2012.

I’ve been called gullible. For. The. First. Time. Ever. And I deserved it. WAAAAAA!!!!

If you crunch a Wint-O-green Lifesaver in a dark room, sparks will come out of your mouth.

@Dutchess_III Why don’t you have a blacklight party instead and serve Gin and Tonics, lol.

Next up, I need to send you out for a lightbulb repair kit. And twenty feet of chow line.

Hey, I wasn’t picking on you. The Lifesaver trick is real and so is the glowing tonic under a backlight.

Hey…Visine eyedrops glow under black light. I know this because when I was about 14 I ended up at a party I shouldn’t have ended up at. They had different lights in each room. They had a black light in the living room. Dude had glowing green streaks running down his face. He didn’t seem to realize it (this was before the advent of KISS and Alice Cooper and such.) It was weird. Then I saw him again in the kitchen, where they had a strobe light, and the streaks were gone. I was relieved. Then I saw him again in the living room and the streaks were back. It was WEIRD. It took me a couple of years to figure that one out!
