Watch out for that tofu! Tue, 11/29/11 12:38 AM (permalink)
According to an article in the Oregonian,  (http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2011/11/northwest_portland_explosion_h_1.html)  a woman told investigators she was cooking tofu and had rinsed out the pan with water when there was explosion. The blast was so powerful that it blew a 4 by 6 window out of the building and onto the street, causing $15,000 damage.

    It might not be the tofu.  If she was using an electric stove, the elements have been known to explode violently, depending on the model.  This doesn't make sense in any way.  At first when I saw this, I was thinking meth, because of the area. 
     
    Or maybe that wasn't tofu at all.
