Default Cap blowing 101

Let's see...erm, when you want to blow out a motherboard, make sure you don't torch caps. They're unpredictable.

What happened was, while I was torchinge the motherboard, I decided to show my mates that caps explode under fire. The first one fused out, so I decided to burn another one. BANG! Good one, but...It hit my forehead. I had a sudden stop and then turned off the torch. I striked a bump with that. That got me angry, so next thing I do...GAS IT!

Submerged with gasoline, it burned away.

So, the lesson for today, NEVER burn cpas while you stand close to the board.

That thing fires like a rocket almost, but it also killed the torch's fire.
