There are currently more YouTube videos of people exploding watermelons with rubber bands than… what? Grateful Dead bootlegs? Ramen recipes? DNC emails? We’re not sure, but we know it’s a lot. Enough to make you think that people exploding watermelons with rubber bands is something that only happens on the Internet.
Not so: At the Franklin Institute Watermelon Implosion! at the PHS Pop-Up Garden, actual science types will be on hand to help you do this, promising that it’ll be like “Jenga with a watermelon.” I’m just gonna let that stand, then, and simply add: There’s beer there, too.
