Hard-cooked eggs exploding in water...on the STOVETOP.

anyone ever had this happen? i understand the phenomenon in the microwave, but i just had 2 eggs burst open in water that hadn't even reached a simmer yet. they definitely weren't rotten - had already passed the "float" test, and smelled fine when they popped.

what gives? any thoughts?

i'm just thankful i had a lid on the pot!
