Chilling Coke

How to chill Coke in 2 minutes. SPOILER: put ice and water in a bowl, add salt.

I used to chill Diet Cokes by putting them in the freezer. The odds were: cold Coke 90%; muted explosion from fridge: 10%.

Those Cokes look weirdly foreshortened--pony size, as it were.

Is the cat going to drink it out of the bowl at the end?!?

Also, on a more dramatic note in home experiments: Anne Fadiman has a good description of why you should use liquid nitrogen when you make ice cream at home, in the essay on ice cream in At Large and At Small.
