    That doesn't look like a "solution"....it looks more like a "problem".....

    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream and I hope you don't find this too crazy is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    That's what I was thinking. I didn't see any solutions to it.

    It doesn't appear to have anything to do with potential tank leaks.

    "They had filled the vessel with steam, equalized the pressure while still hot.. then sealed it off. In the rain, and rapid cooling at the steam condenses, lowering the pressure, then when the vessel can't take the pressure anymore... "

    Well.....this looks like an experiment, not an "amazing solution"!

    You could use this "experiment" to show why you would open the top lid of a tanker before doing a quick dump of its contents though!!
