Forgetting exactly how many minutes I'd been developing a roll of film for today I was reminded how I accidentally microwaved a left over sausage for too long and found out that sausages have the ability to explode. So far I'd say photography is a little more forgiving, but I never did like microwaves that much.
Personally I enjoy the photographic process as much as I enjoy the finished result, same with cooking. Explosions just make for surprise interestingness.
