I call ******** on a human surviving 2 minutes in space;
1) assuming your lungs were full of air the pressure difference between your lungs and space would cause you to explode pretty much instantly
2) if your lungs weren't full of air, most people wouldn't survive the 2 minutes anyway. (at least not while remaining conscious)
3) a point that was mentioned later in the post, at 12 miles high your blood would boil at body temperature, in the vacuum of space it would boil much easier.

I imagine there are more reasons that this, but until NASA actually test this to prove those points wrong I will always call ******** .

Various accidents have happened where the human body is subjected to a vacuum. The result is that the human body would inflate to the figure of a fit body builder. Your lungs will get damaged if you were trying to hold your breathe, however that can also happen to Scuba divers. If your lungs were deprived of air, you are likely to become unconscious within 14 seconds, but your body will consume much less air afterwards, making the survival time around 2 to 3 minutes. Your third point would only be valid if a human being does not have blood pressure. However the natural blood pressure of the human body prevents your blood from being boiled, unless if your heart stops beating.

People actually slowly deflate, die, then inflate gradually as heat leaves their body in the form of radiation.

You are severely underestimating the resilience of a human body. Because of your skin and circulatory system, you do not instantly freeze, explode, or boil. You can look it up if you're still skeptical. I saw a nasa page that said this
