I've never had a cup of water blow up in my face, but I have seen seemingly still water suddenly boil over instantly when you put something in it (especially something powdered like instant coffee). I learned to always put a spoon in the water as soon as it comes out of the microwave and stir it around a bit before dumping anything in.

Even better, I just heat up water on the stove and don't bother with the microwave anymore.
