Lithium is a burning thing
And it makes a fiery ring
Bound by wild desire
I fell into a battery fire

I fell into a burning battery fire
I went down, down, down and the flames went higher
And it burns, burns, burns,
the battery fire

The whole premise of a battery is to take energy and concentrate it into a small space, in a form that makes it easy to release later

This is also very near the definition of a bomb. The main difference is that in a battery the release is supposed to be slow and controlled, instead of fast and uncontrolled.

Batteries are just slow, controllable bombs, except when control is lost. Then they are just bombs.

Body fat is another strategy to take energy and concentrate it into a small space, in a form that makes it (ostensibly) easy to release later. When that control is lost, musicians (especially drummers) can likewise spontaneously combust.

MightyPez: legion_of_doo: Apple had that feature first!

I'm pretty sure it was Sony, actually. It just so happens those batteries were sold to a lot of different companies.

Yeah this, it was Sony.  They supposedly fixed the problem.

/Is it time for the 2-minute consumerist hate?
