my dad wired a can of beans to the exhaust manifold of a 1968 straight six truck so it would be warm when we got there. it exploded one mile before we got there :). that truck smelt like baked beans for the next 3 years.

I suggest this thread be moved to 'Hiking Humor' as I can't seem to stop laughing. :banana

I have a friend who was a commercial spear fisherman...he used to cook turkey legs on the exhaust manifold while boat moved from reef to reef...nothin like diesel flavored turkey leg!

I once ran into a group who had carried cases of beer into Peters Mountain Shelter in January, it had been down to 3 degrees the night before. There were a number of exploded beer cans and thirsty rednecks around lunchtime due to numerous failed attempts to thaw the beer in the fire pit.

I've seen a Platypus bottle go instantaneously "poof" when I tried to thaw it out too...

For you old timers you might remember the C-ration peanut butter can "hand grenade". Not the smartest thing to throw in a fire but certainly livened things up a bit.

Now it's the MRE Bomb using a thick walled plastic bottle with a small amount of water, drop the chemical heater from the MRE in the bottle and replace the cap. I did this once to a guy who was crapping in a porta-potty. I waited until he sat down and dropped it down the stink pipe and it exploded in the blue water, turning his butt blue. I laughed so hard I was crying, then running for a long time.
