Someone on little_details wondered what the ignition point of paper was. nebulia responded with their anecdotal proof.

451 degrees farenheit is thetemperature where paper up and bursts into flame. Not only did I read the book, but, being the curious seventh grader that I was, I stuck a few pieces of paper in my oven, set my oven to 455 degrees (as it works in five-degree increments) and turned it on. Sure enough, a little after the screen read 450 degrees, my paper burst into flame and I had to run and find the fire extinguisher. But don't tell my parents; they haven't heard about it yet, and, since it's been more than five years, i want it to stay that way...
But yes, it is 451 degrees faarenheit. And I proved it.
