I am so grateful for the forum compiling this google list is. I did one whole newsletter on articles from this source. And the chili pepper and the grapeseed spontaneous combustion stories will be in the next newsletter. Dang these are interesting and they bring up issues my people need to know.
The grapeseed one in particular is important because many artists think that only linseed oil will combust on rags (hell many don't even know that). But citrus oil, tung oil, pine oil, and now grapeseed oil also are known to do this. Monona
