Spontaneous Human Combustion?
#1
Here is a classic example of why I am a Huge Ron White fan. Sheriff: Man Who Died In Fire May Have Spontaneously Combusted.

I started to place this in the Jackasses being Jackasses Thread, but this is so Lame a statement that the sheriff here, needs a special thread of his own. That's right, he is a Registered Jackass too. S5

Quote:Authorities say the man had a history of heavy drinking and smoking.

No cause of the fire has been determined and Lockhart says spontaneous combustion has not been ruled out.

“I think there’s only about 200 cases worldwide, and I’m not saying this happened. I’m just saying that we haven’t ruled it out,” Lockhart told KFSM.

The body was sent to the state Medical Examiner’s Office in Tulsa for an autopsy

Does anyone actually believe Spontaneous Combustion to be true?

The Human body is mostly water and the secondary amounts are not combustable thus I do not accept it.

Composition of the human body

Things can burn underwater, so how much H2O is in the body isn't the end-all. H2O has oxygen - which is the prime ingredient for low-temperature combustion, and the H2O is in solution - not pure, anywhere. The point that sticks is the triggering of whatever fuels are present. "Spontaneous combustion" means no trigger, doesn't it? Alcohol suspended in water will still burn - but lighting it on fire is the first step.
