»Nixon ‘blew his stack’ over gap in Water­ga­te tape.«
South Afri­can Dai­ly News — 2011-11-14

»›I have heard men use the term, ‘So-and So blew his stack I suspect that ’stack’ refers to the cord-wood used for fuel on steam­boats in the pioneer era. In a race with ano­t­her stea­mer, an engi­neer would blow his stack of wood quick­ly. Or, it could refer to the hea­vy draft up the smo­kestack.‹ ›But I have heard [the phra­se] all my life. From the con­text of the expres­si­on as I know it, I will haul off and say it refers, not to the stack of cord­wood, but to the smo­kestack blown off by an over­hea­ted boi­ler.«
The Cou­rier-Jour­nal, Louis­vil­le, Ken­tu­cky,  Thurs­day, March 2, 1961
