    So I went to open a can of Pepsi and whenever I did it exploded, I did not freeze it, heat it or shake it up. The explosion made my ears ring for an hour after, my hand was oozing/bleeding for a while after too.

    Wow. Sounds like it was over carbonated. I would contact the Pepsi company and report it.

    Yeah it sounded like the time I shot a 12 gauge without hearing protection. But the Pepsi customer service line won't open until 9AM EST on Monday.

    Sooooo, if hot coffee is worth a cool million.......... how much could one squeeze out of a boobie trapped pepsi can?? If your as lucky as I am, I wouldnt be able to get them to provide a bandaid!
    Seriously though, I would save everything and call as soon as possible. Could have been a little kid, and a lot worse. Very strange.

    Ouch, call a damn Lawyer man! They make the cans so damn thin they barely hold the pressure of gravity much less carbonation! If one falls out of the fridge on the floor by mistake, its going off like a grenade, no doubt about it! I had a bottle of water a couple days ago that the plastic was barely more supportive than a baggy.

    I'll be happy if I get free PepsiCo products for life. I can't have a tetanus shot either.

    I would worry more about an infection from rat and mouse fecal matter on top of the can. I don't usually drink from cans. I worked in the grocery business for far too long to trust that the top of the can is clean.

    Wth. If it had that much pressure the top and bottom should have been deformed and bulging. That's every odd. If left cans in the sun and they still didn't have that much pressure. The tops bulged tho. They force carbonate the cans in production. It could very well have been double primed. But it should have exploded in transit. Lawsuit maybe. Compensation yes.

    I would be greatly surprised if Pepsi gives you the time of day. Wash your hand and put a band aide on it for heavens sake.

    If you feel up to long drawn out litigation over a tiny cut in your hand, go for it, but hope you don't go to a jury with someone like me on it, 'cause, I would give you less than I expect Pepsi to.

    Just think what a burp that pop would have produced if one were able to drink it. :eek:

    Put it all in a ziplock baggie and store out of light and in a cool place. Not necesarily in the fridge.

    This is untrue. I am a hippie and I have never pissed Pepsi. Diet Pepsi, maybe, but I have never checked to be sure. ;)
