    There are few things in life that i love more than bacon. One is prosciutto. First: never, never, never misplace those two. Second: never throw a good prosciutto, even if your life depends on it. I mean it

    no SmilinSam, the inner bacon is burning. turns out oxygen doesnt "burn" oxygen is what is used to burn things. if you apply anything to pure oxygen its very likely to burst into flames and you can do it with pretty much anything organic

    All burning is simple oxidation. Even prosciutto is not immune to it.

    LOL...oxygen burning? Really? You do realize that if oxygen was flammable our atmosphere would be on fire right now. O2 is a support chemical, it supports consumption of fuel, it is NOT fuel. Given that fact, any carbon source will burn that hot provided enough support. Heck, if you provided enough o2 you could use your finger as a torch too.

    Simple high school science...
