Others have already been listed but the head space in your fermentation vessel makes a difference for blow outs too. I always use a blow off tube just to avoid the mess in case of vigorous fermentations. Since I've increased my pitch rates and been brewing big beers recently, all have been throwing stuff into the blowoff lately

Lay on the couch and fart... nothing.
point taken haha..

but i usuaully get like wyest or american labs... which is like pornstar yeast and this time i used coopers that was inside can yeast which is like masterbating.

but i get the point tho.. i think next batch i will dry using dry yeast again.

The yeast was probably almost done with the majority of work. I had a stout that finished--from 1.050 to 1.011 in one week. It went hard for two days and then the Krausen fell and it just did light bubbling for the rest of the week. It may look like not much is happening but the little monkeys are doing their thing and don't care if you are impressed with the show. I guess kind of like Beergolf with his girlfriend.
