Wow, I know you can light milk on fire as I had a drink once with milk, kahlua, vodka and some other stuff lit on fire .....it was a good shot....I think it was a flaming mind eraser? But I did not know it could catch fire coming out of a cow. :eek:

Most dry fine powders of carbohydrate, proteins and fats are flammable and many common ones such as corn starch, sugar and flour are explosive when dusted in the air or mixed with oxidixers like nitrates, chlorates and perchlorates. Dust explosions have been a danger in mills since the industrial revolution began.

For people who are lactose intolerant, drinking a quart of milk and eating a plate of scrambled eggs could produce the same effect.
