About The Extreme Sticky Note Experiments
Fritz & Stephen, the madmen behind the Extreme Coke & Mentos Experiments, now cause chaos in the office with over a quarter of a million sticky notes!  From a simple cascading pad to 40,000 sticky notes falling from the ceiling, this video uses 280,951 sticky notes in less than 3 minutes. And don't worry: they can be reused! And when they're beyond repair, we make sure to recycle them -- or we use them the normal way and make notes on them!

How Does This Work?
From waterfalls to wheels, all this craziness is made out of nothing but sticky notes -- the zigzag pads made for pop-up dispensers.  It literally took us 3 days of experimenting with zigzag pads to discover the waterfall and it was months before we thought to stick one end of the pad to the other to make pinwheels.
