Maybe exploded isn't quite the right term, a buddy of mine was not paying attention when he was flushing his black tank, I don't quite understand what happened, but it built up pressure, and split a seam open, YUK! Don't think he will ever do that again!

Agreed, not sure how you would build up enough pressure to explode, however we all know methane gas is highly explosive. I wonder if he (or she) tossed a cigarette butt down the hole before it closed after flushing? If it was hot, the vent wasn't working very well, and you have a nice hot cigarette butt dropped down the really convenient little hole...HOLY %$^&!

Exactly why tacos are not considered a traditional camping food!

Oddly enough, a quick Google of "RV Black Tank Explodes" brings up quite a few articles going all the way back to 2012...

I don't think that woman has kids. Crap, it's your stuff in the tank. I'd have probably slung it on her to give her a reason for all the drama. It's just poo for goodness sake. I got a very strong stomach and it just doesn't bother me. I've had incidents as well in the earlier days of RVing, but that's how we learn. I guess me and my kids are weird. My kids like to help flush the tanks, as they can watch the "stuff" drain through the clear fitting. And I always throw in a few comments while watching it, like yep, there goes thursday's dinner, oh and that was friday etc etc.
