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.

Try This at Home!
Yes, you can try this at home!  Pick up a few zigzag pads of sticky notes and click below:

    @ Dan

    actually it is not animated… you use popup sticky note refills that are zigzagged and stick some pads together and just use them like a slinky… check the links and see how to make waterfalls and pinwheels… i already have 3000 notes and growing…

    Go EepyBirds!!!

    I love these experiment ideas. My only question why aren’t all business using this kind of advertising? It would make commercials fun to watch again.

  • Gill

    those Waterfalls are so cool! My mom would never buy post-its again or chain me to my bedpost if I did this at home. I have to say, the mentos and diet coke fountains are still my favorite.

    AT LAST – a web site devoted to pure, unadulterated, harm no-one and nothing (not even the ecology), laugh out loud fun.

    They should get the Nobel Peace Prize for what is on this site – it has gone where no man has gone before.

  • Shi Zhan(A.K SCHWANN)

    wow,it’s so cool.I’m here in China.I saw one of the vedios from a chinese website,and then I found this.I have never seen so many amazing things before in China!!!How great the Inenet is.

    Wonderful blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Appreciate it

  • Al Ive

    The experiments they are doing are all pretty cool! But you can tell that it takes a heap of time! They need to get a job! LOL!!! :D

  • DerpyGirl

    Woah. This is trippy. xD

  • cell phone directory

    Howdy! I realize this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask. Does managing a well-established website like yours take a lot of work I’m completely new to running a blog but I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!

    An fascinating discussion may be worth comment. I do believe you to ought to write regarding this topic, may possibly not be considered a taboo subject but usually consumers have been insufficient to speak on such topics. An additional. Cheers
