Raider_dad: Spice reaction or orgasm?

Orgasm, definitely. Spice reaction usually involves blue-on-blue eyes, limited prescient ability, tendency to talk to oneself in whispers.

WhippingBoy: Can you be damaged by eating really, really hot peppers or hot sauce? I mean physically damaged, not emotionally damaged.

Capsaicin as a chemical is not corrosive or really all that active. Its main claim to fame is that it activates mammalian pain receptors. This evolved because it keeps browsing mammals from eating the fruit so it can be spread by birds instead. So, physically, no, the chemical doesn't do anything to the skin. That being said, since it activates the pain receptors the body's inflammation response can and does do its own form of damage, trying to mitigate a problem that doesn't exist.

I ate a half dozen chicken wings coated with 500k hot sauce for dinner last night. I had to sign a release to do it. I have very minor burns on my lips, tongue and a few of my fingertips to prove it. On the other hand, my name is being put on a metal plaque at the restaurant where I did it, so it was clearly worth it.

I haven't found a habanero I haven't liked. My sister places a match tip in with the plant seed when she plants them because that is supposed to increase the heat from the sulphur content. I don't know, but we cut some of them up and place them on a pan to bake for a few minutes in the oven. Add those to a party mix and it is awesomeness in flavor form.

If a Jalapeno rates only about 8,000, I cannot imagine what 350,000 would be like!

I grew a jalapeno plant one year. I sliced one open and ate a little slice. My mouth burned for 2 days!
I love them pickled, but never fresh!

christ1: 350k? Nubian please.

/scorpion and ghost hot sauce this year. yea buddy.

I have two ghost pepper and two habanero varieties in my summer garden. One of the habanero peppers was hot enough where I only needed one pepper for a whole pot of chili using 2 lbs of meat. I am scared to even try the ghost chilis. Since this summer was so hot they are probably hotter than usual. I have so many peppers I do not know what to do with them, and they only just started bearing ripe peppers.

Oh shut up.

roblarky: Pfft! Only 350k on the Scoville scale?

Trinidad Moruga Scorpion laughs at your amateur shenanigans.

I've eaten a dish (okay, one bite of a dish) made with those. It take a couple of minutes to really hit you, but when it does it's a full-body reaction. It was like 15 minutes before I could stop my legs from shaking.
