Shawn Lindseth: In 1982 Benedetto Supino, an Italian adolescent boy, discovered something quite strange about himself. He was sitting in a dentist's waiting-room reading a comic book when all of the sudden the thing burst into flames right there in his hands. At the time, no doubt, he claimed total innocence to deaf ears. Once a fiery pattern was established after a few more incidents, his surrounding adults may have been more likely to believe him - especially when they actually saw him accidentally ignite things without a match in sight. As we already said, Benedetto Supino discovered his strange powers at a young age - around 10 -when a dentist's comic book flamed-up in his hands. Although there were instances of the boy starting a flame with sufficient intention and concentration, it seems that usually neither was the case. Paranormal.About.com gives an example of the latter happening: "One morning [Supino] was awakened by a fire in his own bed – his pajamas were in flames and the boy suffered severe burns." Doesn't sound like a terrific gift there, does it? The same article goes on to give other instances of flames starting by his intention, or merely by his presence: "On another occasion, a small plastic object held in his uncle’s hands began to burn as Benedetto stared at it.

Just about everywhere he went, furniture, paper, books and other items would start to smolder or burn. Some witnesses even claimed to see his hands glow at these moments."

Strange indeed. But I believe that this is nonfactual considering that high amounts of energy is needed to ignite a fire. If it came out of his eyes, do you think its anatomy could withstand such magnitude of energy? Even still, fire requires heat and heat that would be enough to ignite something could dry up the humors (vitreous and aqueous) and cause severe damage other eye structures.

I don't think that the human genome has evolved this much to make an event like this possible.

omg thats cool!!! hey maybe he can be like a xmen or a fantastic 4!!!
Posted 6/27/08
i wna see some reliable evidence!
Posted 6/27/08
O.o wow. if that was true i must say, yeah its cool.
since i'm more towards seeing the results, it could be due to the air pressure at that specific time that caused the fire instead?
or was there some other underlying factor.
i'm not an expert so i cant say much.
but as far as i know, this cant really happen. yupps.
