Default Re: Exploded donut spare wiki

I saw the results of a cold tank overfill once - in a 73 Nova. Divers would cold fill their tanks at a cooperative dive shop - so they could get a bit more bottom time.

This genius then left he tank in the trunk of his car. In July.

Scuba tanks have an overpressure device - that is basically a hole covered by a piece of copper held in place. Unfortunately - they don't always work.

It didn't in this case. The tank went - and it expanded the trunk lid a bit - then did a rocket impersonation - and went through the side of the trunk. It bounced off a Ranchero sitting next to it, then flew several hundred yards and the biggest piece landed on top of the high school.

No humans were injured in the making of this stupidity.
