I've Always Wondered

I kid you not, this is a literal conversation we had at the dinner table today:

Chuck:  I've always wanted to know what would happen if you boil Coke.

Me:  Seriously?  I had no idea you harbored such scientific thoughts.

Chuck:  Yes.  I've always been curious about this.

Me:  I could think and think for a hundred years and that thought would never once cross my mind.

Chuck:  I've also wondered what would happen if you boil gasoline.

Me:  Oh, please don't do any experiments.

Chuck:  I wasn't planning to, but I just like thinking about it.  So, what do you say?  What do you think would happen with the Coke?

Me:  having to really put my thinking cap on and think it through: I think all the carbon dioxide would escape quickly leaving all the sugar to burn on the bottom. why? i have no idea, it just sounded scientific.

Chuck: Well I don't.  I think it would all boil over the edge of the pot.

Me:  OK.  Fine.  Whatever.

Gavin:  I've always wondered what would happen if you shot a flare gun over a lake of oil.

Chloe:  It would become a lake of fire.

Bennett:  I've always wondered what would happen if you dropped a cupcake on the floor in front of Ninja.

These people mentally exhaust me.
