That's not silly. Some of those things can get several million scovels (or whatever they're called) and do some significant damage to your mouth, tongue, esophogus, etc.

Why would people want to eat those? I could eat something on fire but I would have massive burns on my mouth. Why do people have to eat something just to make a point?

Hotter than the merciless peppers of Quetzlzacatenango? I don't think so.

I just hope that they reinforced the plumbing in the mens room. That shiat sounds like it could melt porcelain
 
2008-01-04 12:16:40 PM  
Do Red Savinas actually have any flavor, or is it just so the eater can say he put the equivalent of a white-hot steel rivet in his mouth?

Lots and lots of free publicity, that's why.

Hey Mister! You were about to drink wax, you dont want to do that do you?

Maybe I do son, maybe I do
 
2008-01-04 01:09:34 PM  
No thanks. I tried a Thai pepper of some sort many years ago. I popped that tiny little green thing in my mouth, chewed it up and a gallon of milk and lots of bread later I woefully regretted it.

Having lived in the Buffalo area, and now in Chicago, I'd have to say that there are some places in town here, that have very decent chicken wings.

I don't particularly care for any of the OMG THEEZ ARE SO SPICEE variety, but the Wild Goose and The Rail both have decent wings, The Bird's Nest has the best I've tasted in the city though.

Just because it's a cool bit of trivia, capsaicin only activates pain receptors for mammals. Birds could eat all of these peppers they wanted and not feel a thing. As a matter of fact, that's how peppers spread their seeds--through birds.

I needed some pepper at work for my soup, buddy of mine had canister of Red Savina peppers he had grown and ground up. He failed to tell me exactly what he was giving me, I thought it was just plain chili powder.

Took 3 weeks for my asshole to stop burning.

Quaker Steak has required waivers on their hottest sauce for years.

Ah, a chicken wing thread. We haven't had one of those in a while....

Personally, my favorite here in Johnstown PA is the Sweet n' Heat wings at Tulune's Southside Saloon. Hot, but flavorful.

/2 cents....

Spicy foods cause release of endorphins. Gives you a bit of a rush. That's what makes them enjoyable to eat, despite the pain.

I prefer a mild spice. Usually order my wings medium. Enough to make things interesting, but not so much that it affects my ability to eat tons of them.
 
2008-01-04 01:12:59 PM  
I love eating really hot and spicy foods, but once you get up around 100,000+ scovilles, it's more like getting pepper sprayed in the face.

Flavor > heat

Men! show your toughness by eating something that gives you chemical burns!! Because Stupid = tough = respect...fail?

If you were really tough you would eat this:

But you are just a little girl, so you won't.
 
2008-01-04 01:13:10 PM  
Just to nit pick, the Red Savina isn't the hottest pepper anymore. Both the Dorset Naga and Bhut Jolokia are hotter. The Red Savina was tested to register between 500,000 and 600,000 Scoville units. The Dorset Naga was between 870,000 and 970,000. The Bhut Jolokia was just over 1,000,000.

You sound like my dad.

I don't eat hot things to prove how 'manly' I am.

I love the intense sensation on my tongue.

I never understood this 'spicy' hate.

Mainly alcohol and peer pressure. Remember, you may not be the one to stick your tongue on a flagpole, but it sure is fun to watch the outcome.

The same reason people buy novelty hot sauces with little devils and nuclear explosions on the bottle. Deep insecurity compensated for with false bravado. Or maybe they're just idiots.

You should have just paid him for the peppers instead of accepting his offer of a "trade," then.

/sorry, couldn't resist

(Finally some good news)

Got to be a publicity stunt, powerful pepper properties aside.

I would not want to risk my bar with this. Waiver or not, lawyers can be very creative people when money is involved. Did the owners check with their insurance people first?

/but I'd love to see Britney or Ron Paul or (insert candidate of your choice here) scarfing them down on video

How about you let people eat what they want.

Fill your empty life with food you enjoy, which I assume would be kraft singles on white bread with mayonnaise.

Crawdaddys in Saskatoon, they had you sign a waiver for years. My dumbass (best friend) buddy was tearing up so much he wiped the tears with the same finger he was eating the chicken wings with.

/Ha ha.
//He was in the bathroom for half an hour rinsing his eyes.

Capsaicin is an oil, not a pepper.

Love, it's a burnin' thing,
And that wing, it sure did sting.

That chicken wing came out,
In a burnin' ring of fire,
It slid down, down, down,
And the flames, they got higher,
And it burned, burned, burned,
That wing of fire,
That wing of fire.

servlet: Spicy foods cause release of endorphins. Gives you a bit of a rush. That's what makes them enjoyable to eat, despite the pain.

It's also theorized that it's a psychological kick, too. There's a guilty pleasure in experiencing pain that you know is non-injurious.

CLUCK U has been doing that for years. I have to sign that waiver every time I go.
