Bursting into flames?
I just spit my water all over my computer. I was watching the documentary by Ken Burns – Prohibition. Excellent documentary, by the way, but in one segment they said that during the late 1800s children were having to go to classes three times a week to learn the evils of drink. One of the biggest fears that they taught was that if you drank too much you would spontaneously combust into a blue flame. I wondered what that was that I was seeing and experiencing as a teenager and young adult.
