All I wanted was to make a nice thermos full of tea.
I put the powdered tea right into the thermos - something I've done hundreds of times! Then I poured it one thirds full of boiling water. And started to stir, to dissolve the powder.
...the thermos blew up! Or rather the glass inside did. As I was stirring.
Ye Gods! You can believe that I *instantly* transported myself to the other side of the kitchen. Or at least that's what it felt like. And I'm sure you could hear the scream all the way over in the next village.
Now the inside of my thermos consists of tiny pieces of silvered glass... >.>
And no tea.
I need a new thermos...
