I was actually thinking of the same thing, which is scary because as a child I put a pot of water on the stove to make oddles-of-noodles. I apparently broke the element
as I sat in my living room I watched a shower of spark shoot out of my kitchen, my response was to run out of the house
luckily I didn't burn the house down but it put a huge hole in the pot.
