To understand why some patients’ asses spontaneously burst into flame on the operating table, you have to understand a few things about the tools surgeons use. You wouldn’t think that the doctor would, say, whip out a blowtorch to repair an artery — after all, you’re not a cyborg (yet).

And under the right conditions, that shit can totally start a fire.

Or there that is not, I guess.
