Could you explode If there was a methane gas buildup inside you ?

    Not while living.  In the right conditions, anaerobic decomposition inside a corpse can make it swell up and burst.  Gross.  Sometimes you'll see it on one of those true crime channels.

    Nope. Methane alone will not do that  . It needs oxygen for that. I did hear that someone put a hose up their butt and lighted the flatus..

    One time there was enough oxygen mixed with the methane to burn. The flame went up inside him. Ouch.

    Where would the oxygen and the spark come from?

    You probably have had methane build up inside hundreds of times, and farted it out

    Spontaneous Human Combustion? It has not been linked to methane, but who knows?
