    A visual on why not to ever use anything but water in a Sodastream?

    And this is why the soda stream instructions tell you to never carbonate anything but water.

    Yay mead!

    I'm sure it would have been fine with a bit more patience. Let it sit for a few hours and it at least shouldn't explode. (Now I find myself wanting to try it to see. Too bad (Fortunately?) I don't have a soda stream to play with.

    Meh. They say to only use water because most people are total morons.

    I suspect the dad in this case isn't a moron however. It seems like he figured the kid would produce a disastrous show, but maybe he neglected to realize the extent of the disaster.

    Perhaps the wine was vinegar already...
    The boy erred on the side if caution, half a bottle. He didn't want to waste dad's wine.
    Cut-scene to a full bottle...
