On a positive note, he'll be regarded as 'hot' when he grows up and will reap the benefits.

If he ends up being gay when he gets older I hope he's not one of those annoying flaming homosexuals. :whistle:

Does anyone know of a manufacturer who can supply a baby's car seat shaped like a fire bucket?

The doctor quotes wiki? What physician would even consider this as a possibility? It may not be the mother doing it, but the child needs protection from some(fleshandblood)body.
So the paranormal is now a viable abuse excuse, terrific...
"International Business Times said there have only been about 200 cases of SHC reported over three centuries. But not everyone is buying the idea of spontaneous combustion: Joe Nickell, author and paranormal investigator, has studied cases in which human combustion was evoked for more than four decades, and he’s determined that Rahul’s case is just another example of blaming a phenomenon that doesn’t actually exist.
'There's no possibility'
"We now know there’s no possibility, scientifically speaking, of any thing called Spontaneous Human Combustion," Nickell told MSN News. "This would be like revisiting whether the earth’s really round or flat. It’s settled science and there’s no respectable scientist in the world who believes in this."
Nickell believes that spontaneous combustion is an absurd theory for several reasons, including the fact that the human body is primarily made of water and that spontaneous combustion would entail him burning from the inside out instead of simply suffering his skin surface burns."
This is what I wondered, shouldn't internal organs burn as well, so the victim would suffer even more serious injury?

the Inquisition certainly thought so.....

bet I can find a few dafties here on UM who would though.....
spontaneous combustion is an absurd theory for several reasons,
so is 'hollow earth' 'crop circles being a sign of revelation' 'aliens built the pyramids' 'the CIA nuked the WTC' 'rods' 'i'm telekinetic' and 'planet X ate my hamster', but that doesn't stop people believing it QC!

However I am assuming that while the baby was under observation he didn't catch fire, not even once!
Odd, is it not?
