If I eat one, will I have a psychotic episode where I meet a coyote who's voiced by Johnny Cash?

I just dried a bunch of habaneros and man are those things retarded

I call shenanigans - guy was holding them without rubber gloves.

Unless he's got people to hold his penis for him when he urinates, then I suppose it is plausible to handle such a thing bare handed ;)

"Earlier this year they created an 81-mm tear-gas like grenade which could be thrown by a soldier.

The mix of spices and phosphorous chokes the enemy's respiratory tract, leaving targets barely able to breathe for a time." turns your enemy into the perfect chili ingredient.

'Some people have actually eaten the raw pods, because that's the sort of macho thing that some people do, and posted it on YouTube. A couple were sick.'

Link to video or it didn't happen.

For some reason this quote just cracked me up even though it's a dry statement of fact.

1) He was holding the stems, while the capsaicin is inside the pod
2) He was holding a completely different pepper

Great reference.

Depending on the flavor, I sort of want it.


Dave's insanity has a great flavor. The capsaicin extracts do not.

I personally love their blazin and dave's insanity sauce as well, but I stop on the blazin about 12 boneless.

I'm in Cancun right now, working at the Climate Conference.

They've been feeding us with the local workers.

So... they have a container of sauce, which is fairly hot, and I'm used to that level of spiciness. Didn't think much of it, and when I saw a pepper floating the the mix, I just popped it into my mouth, thinking it was just a sorta-hot pepper. I'm used to eating habaneros, and the rest of the salsa wasn't that spicy, right?

Wrong. Tears, sweat, lots of pain, more pain in the following day from the other end, et cetera. I said something to one of the locals, and he mentioned that they didn't eat those, they were just to improve the flavor of the rest of the stuff, you'd have to be crazy to eat one...

Well, yeah, but the flip side is that a lot of them are afraid of me now, since I'm not dead.

And the rest are nice to me because they think know I'm crazy.

I need some of these peppers for my Pain and Simple BBQ sauce. We use the Ghost Chilis, Arbols. habaneros, ceranos, pablanos and several other hot peppers.

Massive heat that lingers. Makes you sweat!!

Cool story time!

Back in American Samoa us palangis would do all kinds of stupid shiat, including a hot sauce drinking contest. Four or five guys sat around taking shots of mixed super-intense hot sauces until they couldn't stand it anymore and bowed out. No water allowed.

I didn't participate, but I did take up the serving guy's offer of a shot of what they were drinking in the final round. Holy shiat. It was something like 1 part Dave's Insanity Sauce + 1 part Habanero sauce + 2 parts something roughly equal to Dave's.

I spent the rest of the night drinking milk and pissing handsfree.

PEOPLE DO GARDENING IN GLOVES

1) They wanted a shot of him in the garden
2) Force of habit - he put his gloves on
3) Or maybe they asked him to put them on to give the phot shoot a nice, gardeny feel
4) They needed him to pose with a chilli
5) That's the one he grabbed

Sure, it's goofy and staged, but it's not shenanigans.

First it was the red savina habanero, then the ghost chili, and now this. When will the madness end???

1.3 million is hot, but even the bhut jolokia isn't all that different from a habanero. Neither are entirely pleasant, but if you can handle one you can generally handle the other. The naga viper is an even more subtle step up.
 
2010-12-02 09:18:08 PM  
I once had a meal of rijstaffel in Amsterdam. an Indonesian thing in which fifteen to twenty dishes are served with lotsa rice. One was some nice veggies in a completely clear liquid that looked like water. I et the veggies, and they were hot, but nothing I couldn't handle. Then, waste not, want not, I took a slurp of the water-like liquid.

Three beers later, my eyes still watering and my tongue on fire, I decided I had made a mistake.

/Not going to try this pepper, nor the ghost pepper, and I doubt a habanero will ever pass my lips.

Reading fail? He has no gloves on, so no goofy staged photo of him with gloves on...

just for comparison sake how does the habenero stack up on the scovile scale?

also DSPturm you're a pussy... a jalapeno is not hot!!! it's just a slight tinge! :)

This pepper I want.

Szech: Dave's insanity has a great flavor. The capsaicin extracts do not.

Shut Up Juice > Dave's Insanity. Saw it on Man vs. Food; it's a bit hotter than Dave's and tastes better, too.
