    I'd be careful if I were you. The prime ingredient that combusts is manure, and it sounds like you're full of it.

    I almost set fire to my house in the most weirdest of ways...

    I had a 2 x mirror on a table that reflected the sunlight coming in and set fire to my vinyl kitchen chair.

    Spontaneous human combustion is NOT a real thing... the person who burned had flamable clothing on, was smoking and set on fire (or some other source). The rest of the room did not burn because it was a sealed room and the oxygen ran out.

    Not possible. By weight, the average human adult male is approximately 60% water and the average adult female is approximately 55%.

      "It's impossible so it doesn't happen" is not a good explanation when people do, demonstrably turn into charcoal for no obvious reason. The wick effect, clothing slowly smouldering and drawing water out of the body has been proposed.
