What happens if you open a pressure cooker without releasing the pressure?

George McLaughlin: 

Well, if it's properly designed, properly made, you shouldn't be able to do that, first. But if you do, if you are able to open it under pressure, what happens is the liquid in that pot under pressure suddenly turns to steam, and it goes from a very small volume of water to a very large volume of steam, and all of the contents just come erupting out of the pot, and they spew all over you, the walls, the ceilings. It's a big, big mess. It just explodes out of the pot.
