exploded coffe pot 004

“Dear PoP,

Cool weirdness plus public service announcement? Today my thermal coffee carafe exploded – as in gunshot loud, glass shooting up like a geyser all over the sink (and me.) The carafe was empty, room temperature for 6 hours, being rinsed in tepid water. Google search turned up a shocking number of similar explosions! I just never thought about exploding coffee pots before! Also, a tire gauge recently exploded during use, shooting the metal measurement slide thing out like a bullet. So it got me wondering, what else explodes that you really would never expect?”

That is insane. Reminds me of my first PoP breakfast tip from Jan. ’07. Never ever try to microwave an egg…
