Should I go for it? (Success! Thanks!)
edit to add: I have very bad luck with sodas so it is going to sit here until I get some inspiration to go ahead.
And since soon I'll get an answer and open the soda, I'll add this: What's the worst soda-related disaster you've ever experienced? I was opening a two-liter of cream soda once and got it all over my keyboard and my chair. The keyboard escaped unharmed, but since I was in a dorm I had to eventually pay for the chair.
last edit, just to keep you posted: I was just enjoying my soda and, no joke, the bottle slipped a little and foam sprayed out to my left while part of the bottle was still in my mouth. There's just no winning with these things!
