When I was young, I was TERRIFIED that I was going to spontaneously combust. I don't know where I heard about it, but I was sure that it was going to happen to me. I had no idea when or how this would happen, which made it all the scarier. I would be sitting watching TV or something and think, "Shit. This might be it. I might spontaneously combust right here, right now and no one will know what had happened."
I was truly afraid of this.
I must have forgotten about it sometime during my studies. Or perhaps I learned enough biology to not believe in it any more. Anyways, I came across this article yesterday and it kinda upset me. I can't really explain it. It's just a really disturbing thought, someone just catching on fire for no reason.
God, I truly worry about the stupidest things.
