Alright someone has got to say this. GM The never claimed to melt a baby. From what I understand when he frist began learning MA, he was learning under a Sand Burn or whatever teacher. They would stick their hands into burning sand to toughen the skin and tissues. Another teacher from another sand burn school accidently picked up his grandson without thinking and BURNED the child severely enough to kill it. I highly doubt that he meant that the kid actually melted, probably just used the wrong word. His teacher stopped teaching and this is how he came to learn under Ie Chang Ming.
I'm sure this is just going to start a flame war.
