" As I was Sitting by the Fire, . . ." Pffunt! Spontaneous Combustion in Galway

The fact that in my nearly three score carbon footprint, I have had two very beautiful, smart, witty, and elegant women find me in any way attractive, good company and not socially sobering is proof enough for me that a great and merciful God exists. Go figure.

View the Midwestern skies at sunset, consider that Two and Half Men is on television, Chaz Bono, The platypus, Vlad Putin's cheerleaders, middle aged men who wear ear rings, or lawyers who wear cowboy hats.

We can explain the above photo (unphotoshopped BTW) Cathie Jung (USA, b. 1937) has a corseted waist measuring 15 inches. Un-corseted, it measures 21in. Her enthusiasm for Victorian clothes is why at the age of 38 she started wearing a training belt to gradually reduce her then 26in waist. She has never had surgery to define her waist.

Many Civil Rights advocates hold that the 'heart wants what the heart wants' which should explain this perfectly natural impending assignation.

Science is limited to that which can be explained. "Hey, baby, do Fries come with that wake? Baby you fine! Slow, up! Oh, this shark has . . . Pearly Teeth Babe . . ."

In Galway, the medical examiner has determined a case of spontaneous combustion.

A man who burned to death in his home died as a result of spontaneous combustion, an Irish coroner has ruled.

West Galway coroner Dr Ciaran McLoughlin said it was the first time in 25 years of investigating deaths that he had recorded such a verdict.

Michael Faherty, 76, died at his home in Galway on 22 December 2010.

Deaths attributed by some to "spontaneous combustion" occur when a living human body is burned without an apparent external source of ignition.

Typically police or fire investigators find burned corpses but no burned furniture.

An inquest in Galway on Thursday heard how investigators had been baffled as to the cause of Mr Faherty's death at his home at Clareview Park, Ballybane.

Forensic experts found that a fire in the fireplace of the sitting room where the badly burnt body was found, had not been the cause of the blaze that killed Mr Faherty.

An old guy is sitting by the fire,

As I was sitting by the fire talking to old Reilly's daughter
Suddenly a thought came into my head, I'd like to marry old Reilly's daughter

Giddy I ae, giddy I ae, giddy I ae for the one-eyed Reilly
. . ., but I digress.

Spontaneous combustion. You burst into flames. Science.

Ladies and Gentleman! The Prime Mover - The Uncaused Cause! God, his own bad self!

Quod erat demonstrandum!
