Oh!  I've seen that one a few times.  I specifically recall a demonstration
he did to show how air expands and contracts during tempurature changes by
imploding a metal fuel can.

There were other deomonstrations (obviously), but that one sticks out
because he *specifically* warned not to do the experiment with a can that
had fuel in it at any point.  And I wanted to do it anyway...

Yes, he was cool.  I saw that not too long ago, maybe 10 or 15 yrs ago?
