Ever heard of spontaneous human combustion?

Exactly what it sounds like. You suddenly just burst into flames for no apparent reason and you're a pile of smoldering ash by the end of it.

How can that even be possible? Especially considering you are made up of 60% water...

I'm gonna try to explain this despite being drunk:
Eberyone who's "spontaneously combusted" have been smokers.
Especially smokers in bed

When they fall asleep in bed, with a smoke intheir hand, their clothes catch on fire. If it's left on fire lomg enough, the fat on the human catches on fire.

Fat is especially flammable.

Because a human has alot of fat throughout, especially in the belly/chest area, that the most flammable.

Long story short: Human spontameous combustion comes from smoking in beds that leads to sports couches to make kids smoke in bed cause it's "safer", then they fall asleep in bed, with a lit cigarette,lighting their clothes or bed, leading to the kid burning, leading to their costudents catching fire and eventually thw whole school to catch fire, leading to several death.

@BarbossasHusband of all the reasonable explanations I read online, that does sound really close
It’s happened a few times. It’s never been observed under laboratory conditions, however. The few times it has happened, it’s turned out that the person’s clothes were soaked in flammable liquid and they had friction matches in their pocket.
@caPnAhab It's not a "head scratcher" for me. As Thomas Paine said, "Is it more probable that nature should go out of her course or that a man should tell a lie?"

@LeopoldBloom sure, I see the logic in what you're saying. I just find entertainment in wondering about mysteries. I'm fairly imaginative
@caPnAhab I enjoy debunking conspiracy theories and "unexplained" phenomena. They are interesting, however.
