There Went The Boom

Have you ever had a soda bottle blow up on you? That's fun. Especially if you're in a position where you can't change your clothes. So you have to walK around all sticky. Yeah, just a total blast. I'm being sarcastic, of coursE.
I left a bottle of soda in my car. It sat in there for a couple of hours in the summer sun. Finally, overtaken by thirst, I reached for it. Bad idea. As soon as I twisted the cap, the contents of the bottle began to spray alL over me. In seconds I was covered from head to toe in tacky liquid, a situation I was unable to remedy for some time.
Apparently it was some kind of chemicaL reaction between the carbonation and the temperature or something. I don't know. I'm not a chemist. All I know is that it was verY uncomfortable, and not an experience I'm keen on repeating.
