                                                An 85-year-old man who appears to have died from spontaneous self-combustion has been buried in his back garden.

Police are refusing to issue a death certificate because his head was burnt to the size of an orange, but his body and clothes were unmarked.

Alexei Rusnac from Dej, western Romania, was found by his daughter sitting next to his fireplace.

Skeptical scrutiny is the means, in both science and religion, by which deep insights can be winnowed from deep nonsense. ~ Carl Sagan

"...man has an irrepressible tendency to read meaning into the buzzing confusion of sights and sounds impinging on his senses; and where no agreed meaning can be found, he will provide it out of his own imagination." ~ Arthur Koestler

                                                            Now that's even stranger than others I've heard
  about.  I don't understand about not issuing a certificate
after someone has died.  Don't they have to put something
  for the cause of death, even if it's a guess?  

"Science may have found a cure for most evils;  but it has
         found no remedy for the worst of them all --- the apathy of human beings."
