Spontaneous combustion is totally underreported.
A drummer for the rock band Spinal Tap was killed in that fashion.

Napolitano told us this never happens ~ no headless bodies at all.

Yet, there it is, the headless body in a Chicago suburb, not far from Obama's mansion!

Suffice it to say there are numerous suspects who should be questioned over this.

Actually there is a story about a brainless man. He lived a fairly normal life with only a brain stem. The rest of his head was filled with fluid.

” Napolitano told us this never happens ~ no headless bodies at all. “

Has anybody besides me noticed that it’s been some 5 hours since the body was discovered - and there has not yet been a “Terrorism Not Suspected” (pat. pend) statement from the FBI??

It's so close to Obama's Chicago mansion it just has to be terrorism related.

I'm sure POTUS pooped his pants over this one.

When I was in 10th grade, some other kids in my neighborhood were into making pipe bombs. Four of them went off to the abandoned gravel pit to set one off. They hooked up the wires to the bomb...after hooking them up to the battery first....

Two were decapitated, one blinded, the fourth standing several feet away was physically unharmed, but emotionally and mentally damaged for life.

I knew all four of them. Explosives of any kind are best left to experts and not to be toyed with.

Sounds like Obama, but his head is not filled with liquid waste matter.

Shades of the Weather Underground Greenwich Village bomb explosion in 1970! (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenwich_Village_townhouse_explosion)

As for the decapitated man in the article, I wonder if he was “cooking” his own explosives from potassium nitrate. My understanding is that, after the mixture cools, the resulting crystalline explosive is almost unusable because it is so sensitive to mishandling. However, it retains some appeal to amateur bomb makers as it is an explosive that can be concocted from common household chemicals. I mention this chemical because, when I first heard an account of the 1970 incident, it was reported that they (the terrorists) were cooking a batch of this explosive and something went wrong.

As the subsequent investigation revealed, the cause was more mundane: the townhouse was loaded with dynamite.
