I’ve been worrying about this lately. I seriously think that I am in a high risk category for this. It runs in my family. I’m actually petrified. I had three uncles and one niece and a great-aunt who were in their houses watching TV and “poof”! They all went up in a puff of flames and all that was left was a little pile of ashes.
I take normal precautions but I’m still worried. Does anyone know of any support groups for this? Is going up in a ball of flames preventable?
I’d hate to have to be on even more meds for this, I take enough of them already.
Worried in California
First off, the best thing you can do for yourself is to avoid dehydration. For men, 18 glasses of water a day are recommended for adequate hydration.
Try not to fall asleep while smoking, or in front of a fireplace. Wear shoes and clothing designed to minimize electric shocks, and consider having your home flooring replaced with a similar material.
Lastly, if you are a vampire, avoid direct exposure to the sunlight.
If you follow these suggestions, you should be safe from spontaneous immolation.
Best of luck,
I don’t think it’s genetic, it’s purely spiritual
Dear Aunt Ruby: You changed my life, I will heed your advice. I am forever indebted to you.
Thankful in California.
yeh pretty strange how victims of ‘spontaneous combustion’ are often smokers
Very good @Rhubot. Very funny. I had to read it 5 times before I appreciated how funny this is.
Moved to the Lounge.
Do they serve coffee in the lounge?
I’ll take an espresso please.
We only serve Nescafe with that weird powdered nondairy creamer.
I’ll take 5 of them please. Easy on the ice and I like mine shaken, but not stirred.
