Sofa king impossible, you are about 60% water. A blood alcohol content of anything over .50% you are most likely going to die. So that's less than half of a percent of your blood volume, never mind the rest of your body not blood.

The fat content of the body acts like a candle with the clothing being the wick. It is called "the wick affect". The body basically does a very heated slow burn, enough heat to consume the body but rarely enough to involve surrounding area.

Being quite the fan of Charles Dickens, Around 1852-53 He wrote a series called Bleak House. One of his story characters, a Mr. Krook was to have died by Spontaneous Combustion. It caused such and uproar that they demanded a rewrite due to the fact that it spread fear and distorted truths. He REFUSED, Stating that he "did ample study before using it in his story" and "in fact was aware of 30 such cases."
It may be taboo as they say, but cases of this happening have been around a very long time.

Alcohol you say? I have a theory! I think that alcohol vaporizes within the body, forming pockets of gas. If one of such pockets were to ignite, boom shakalaka boom?

Re: Death in OK May Have Been Spontaneous Combustion

Wick effect, a persons garments and body fat act as a candle wick and simply burn up. passed out drunk + cigarette = ankles in a shoebox sized casket
