I too have done this in a previous life. But if you check your logbook as I just did I think you will find it was not from 6k to 38k. I am also certain it would not have been air at -40c (possibly at 350kts) coming at you. I seem to recall the most uncomfortable thing about my explosive decompression experience was the stench of the previous night's Ruddles...
I reckon the real thing is very different :-/
