    Has the internet really come to this? Immediate suspicion and disbelief when faced with a story that somehow doesn't suit your world-view? Who appointed you all unofficial defenders of the faith? Keepers of truth and justice? In short, what the hell is the matter with you people?

    I'm not sure about "world-view," I'm speaking mostly from experience.

    If someone came here and said they flew without mechanical apparatus for 20 minutes, would you be forced to take him at his word because it didn't "suit your world-view" or would you have some healthy skepticism based in knowledge of physics, human anatomy and history?

    Its a long shot... But certainly possible.... I'd still like to see Pictures, Surely you'd have 1-2 that were used for the Insurance company? :P

    Yeah, like I said, not impossible. But given my knowledge and experience, I'm going to put the likelihood at just shy of astronomical.

    A lot would have to go right (wrong) for this to happen.

    Some believe your story and others are skeptical. But at least one thing this Thread you started has certainly got people "fired" up!

    3. The likelihood of OP not noticing wet Transformer
    4. The likelihood of wet Transformer even being able to sustain a fire
    You make a lot of assumptions based on non-existent fact. I don't think the OP ever mentioned that he was using it before he recharged it. And no where in his post does he say that it was the battery that caught fire first. He ran into the room and the entire TF was on fire.
    And if the kid purposely hid the fact that he dropped it in the water, do you think he'd have also wiped it down too?
    And we don't know whether the TF was still wet when it was being recharged. If it had short-circuited, but dried out, it can still sustain a fire.

    Logistically speaking, that which was not explicitly stated was implied or later amended.

    If you drop a Transformer in the pool, it's going to take a long time to "dry out" enough to sustain a fire, particularly outside of the inflammable components.

    And if you're like me, you're going to notice when you plug in a device to charge and it doesn't light up or anything.
