      Hi Nick,

      I had to laugh too… please don’t try this anywhere. Utachomeka!

      Anyway, perhaps the point is the most protected parts of the body would be the least likely to burn… the humans private parts are some of the most concealed. Other than this, I can’t think of another reason. Make no mistake about it, there is not part of our bodies that’s fire proof!

      Hi Nick,

      All parts of a body are burnt to ashes e.g. during cremation. This includes even the hardest structures in the body like the bones/skull and teeth.
