"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..."

then why dont you know that oxygen is what keeps poo lit :| sick a candle in a jar with a lid and stick a candle in a jar without a lid...simple high school science experiment...

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

With enough oxygen you can make damned near ANYTHING burn.

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

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
