Spontaneous Human Combustion
« on: Feb 24 2008 - 10:40PM »
I've always had a interest in this subject, I find it fascinating that a whole body can burn with very little damage to the room around them?



[float=left][/float]
This is one of the most famous photos from an alleged case of spontaneous human combustion. On December 5, 1966, 92-year-old retired doctor John Bentley died from a fire of unknown origin in Coudersport, Pennsylvania. The elderly man walked with the aid of a walking frame, clearly visible in the photo. The fire apparently was confined to a small area of the doctor's bathroom, which burned a hole in the floor. Most of his body was reduced to ash.

I had to put this one in for Maggpie   :*:

I love the clown feet.  I am sure Heather will appreciate them.  Spontaneous Combustion has always interested me also.  It is just so strange.

Yeah I dont know about this phenom. I still think people may be closet smokers and no one knows about it. But there are many things about the human body that other doctors and scientists dont understand
Did I just see what I think I saw? Yeah you did! Now lets put it on Bachelors-Grove.com

Yes, but the truly old thing about Spontaneous Human Combustion is that they burn at a temperature hot enough to turn human bone into pure ashes.  Bone is not even burned to dust when a body is cremated in a furnace?  Also it burns at the unreal high temp but always does very little if any damage to the surroundings, which is very hard to explain.   cho

I've gotta go back and watch some of the videos but I really wanted to post this responce to the statement about the closet smokers.  I used to smoke and I have at least 2 friends who used to smoke heavily. All 3 of us have fallen asleep with cigarettes b4. Nothing like this ever happened. Once I woke up and found an entire cigarette on the carpet burnt all the way down to the filter and the length of the cigarette was burnt into the carpet .... and yet no fire.  One of my friends was on heavy medication and smoked. There were hundreds of burn holes in every blanket she owned, every chair, every couch, every shirt, every bathrobe and so on..... never a fire. I don't think cigarettes are the culprit and I'm always suspicious when anyone blames a death by fire on cigarettes. I know it can happen... especially if one throws one into the trash and it burns just the right piece but it's not as common as you might think. che

I heard an interview with the guy that found him on Coast 2 coast with Art Bell. It actually gave me nightmares i was sleeping while the show was on and I dreamt I was the one that found him, when I woke up I heard the man say he ran from the house screaming Dr.Bentley burned up.
