It seems that every single movie, book and TV show uses the same chemistry experiment: the baking soda and vinegar volcano.
PUH-LEESE! We need something better in our lives. Take these, for instance:

Whoa! Enormous 'Cotton Candy' Explosion in Kids' Chemistry Lab

Frozen Family Fun: Try These Cold-Weather Science Experiments

What other cool chemistry experiments should people try? We need to move past the volcano!

Onto the cotton candy bit, it does look delicious :p wonder what Elephants have to say about it.
