All these comments about what happens in an explosive decompression - my first hand experience as the flight test engineer (B744) and caught not paying attention - when those valves were opened I was unconscious in less than 15 seconds - I remember the world getting very slow but that's it. Woke up around 8 000 ft somewhere if I recall. Barely functional the rest of that day.

(I was biking about 70 K a day back then and in great shape)
