How to explode a film canister

A competition winner from Rachael Dodds with a cartoon by Hunkin

Take an Effer Esence or Alka-Seltzer tablet. Put it in a film canister or yowie capsule or kinder surprise capsule. Place the tablet in one bit of the capsule and fill the other part 1/2 full of water. Click them together and quickly, immediately put it on the ground, stand back,  and it will shoot up. Mine went as high as my two story house.
