    pardon me

    ***singing**

    So pardon me while I burst into flames.

    I was having a look in book and I saw a picture of a guy fried up above his knees. I said "man i can relate, cuz lately i've thinking of combusting..."

    excuse me if thats wrong, i'm listening to a different song at the moment and this is hard to do!

    Do a search on google. Personally, I believe it is possible for people to start on fire, but maybe not in the way that the term "spontaneous human combustion" implies. That sounds so violent! I'm sure it can (and has) happen(ed), but perhaps maybe not spontaneously. DUnno. Scary, i hope i'm safe.

    There are multiple theories for such events, although they don't occur that often.

    One is just down to chemistry and what chemicals the body produces through it's sweat glands.

    Another is a bit more phsyical that utilises Parallel worlds in a multiworlds environment and is to do with the misalignment of quanta on multiple world layers. (This can cause the spike of quanta to cause an almost Radioactive effect from a multiworlds perception. although it's actually "Fusion")

    An urban legend, it seems.

    So it seems that one can easily destroy a corpse by lighting it on fire, but not that humans are up and bursting into flames on a regular basis.
