Yes, there's a small amount of plastic explosive built into every Mac computer and it's triggered by emptying the Trash. I recommend you use your Apple Remote and stand far away, preferably behind a steel wall, before deleting the trash.

Better to be safe than sorry. Just make sure you empty the trash on your external hard drive without any USB / Firewire leads connected to your Mac.

Also turn off all wireless connections - just in case.
