Wrong.  It's always C.  Now I'm actually going to go read the article.

Is this further proof that whenever a headline asks a question, the answer is always NO ?

FTFY

Are leading questions the tool of manipulative reporting?

Does framing questions about the inherent combustibility of Chinese children inherently entertaining?

Are auto-play commercials on 'news' websites annoying???

Wow. Great tangentially-related photo that pushed the text way to the bottom. Awesome formatting, bro

And yes, I divided by zero intentionally.

Is this a repeat? I go to so many sites I can't tell anymore.

Take the kid away from the mother and watch how it's magically cured.

Does Spinal Tap need a new Drummer?

Same story, different source.

As I said in the previous thread, this looks like Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy. SHC seems to be a real (albeit totally natural) phenomenon, but almost all cases are 1) fat; 2) middle-aged; 3) alcoholic; 4) involve open fires such as candles, lamps, fireplaces; or 5) involve imbrocations and salves of a flammable nature.

Never heard of SHC in an infant. The prohibitionists of the 1800s and early 1900s made much of these cases when alcohol was involved and used them as anti-booze propaganda to scare the bejebus out of drinkers.

If it involves a ignition source and an accellerant it really isn't spontaneous.

As many scientists are skeptical regarding SHC (spontaneous human combustion), the theory regarding the problem has gained some support over the last few years when an Irish coroner listed spontaneous human combustion as the cause of death of a 76-year-old Irishman who had burnt to death with no apparent source causing the fire.

I didn't realize Irish coroners had the power to suspend the laws of logic and reason.

What about when someone asks if you're a God?

As many scientists are skeptical about Perpetual Motion, the theory regarding the problem has gained some support over the last few years when some guy in his garage built a machine that he won't let anyone analyze claiming that he has found a way around thermodynamics.

Can I write for the "Science" World Report too?

From where would the energy come that would create enough heat to raise the temperature to combustion?  Why would tissue suddenly just start heating up by itself to the point of combustion without causing tissue death well before the combustion point? I don't get it.

Say "Yes" and then go ahead and cross the streams.

When I was a kid anticipating my first travel by flight, I purchased Omni magazine that featured SHC that month.  It scared the crap out of me, and I reckoned I'd burst into flames any day.  The google tells me I would have been 9.

Not spontaneous. Planned the whole thing.

Probably something such as a salve that contains Na. That stuff combusts when exlosed to oxygen. When the oils are gone (evaporation/run off/whatever) the oxygen can reach the ingredient and poof, delayed "spontaneous" human combustion.

Just clean the child really carefully and keep the care taker/parents away. That should fix most problems on the short term.

With incredibly unhelpful picture of what a spontaneous human combustion looks nothing like.

It's real folks.
I was just sitting in my living room one evening watching TV with my girlfriend and all of a sudden the skin on my belly, a 1/4 inch wide by 1 1/2 inch strip just started burning under my shirt. I jumped up, yelled and pulled my shirt to find a fresh burn just above the belt. It did not burn the shirt, so it was within the skin. It blistered like a burn and I had a mark there for a long time.

It was totally freaky. It made me a believer.
I bet it's a massive collecting of neutrinos in a spot and you just happened to be in that spot at the wrong time.

Obviously the government is testing it's new death ray. Or it was aliens. Probably aliens.
