Here's another cite: Kinbara used that classic geometry for an
exothermic reactor - the sphere - in this case, of saw dust.
From Session V, see Kinbara, U Tokyo: Autoignition of Wood Materials
Notice his predicted tipping temperature for this configuration.
(Writing paper has a variable surface filler which may include kaolin
which alters the ignition point, I wouldn't be surprised to find..... )
I'll monitor a few newsprint shreds in a convenction cooker using
a thermocouple, just for fun...
