TofuTheAlmighty: I'd enjoy the heat. But it's huge, has faux pizza for buns, and I'm not that much a glutton.

I don't mind some jalapeños on my burger, or something around that level of heat, but that is waaaaaay too hot for me.

But I'm more concerned with the pizza-as-bun and the fact the thing is too damn high. I'm not a shark. I can't unhinge my jaw. If it can't comfortably fit inside my mouth, why would I want to try to force it in?

I just don't really get double- and triple-patty burgers, or double-derker sandwiches, for that matter. If the goal is to eat a lot of food, why not just eat TWO normal-sized burgers?  Or make the burger wider?

FTFA "It's a constant burn, the heat intensifies with every mouthful, each bite is like an inferno in your mouth. It's still tasty though, the heat doesn't spoil the taste."

Bullshiat. There is a point of heat in which your mouth goes numb and your tongue can't taste anything at all because it's burning out of your head. This burger looks like its passed that point AND collected $200

Why would I want to eat something so hot it's painful, the shiat out LAVA the next day? I like spicy food but when that's the only taste it's not worth it.

Habaneros are hot enough for me. If you can't taste the flavor of the pepper, you're just masturbating.

Oooooo! I am so impressed! You made a burger that will burn the ever living crap out of a person's tongue on the way down and their arse on the way out.


Anyone can make something incredibly hot. The trick is also making it flavorful so that people other than scovillie junkies and drunk frat boys will want to eat it.

I used to put multiple hot peppers on my burgers and sandwhiches, and then I realized I didn't like the sensation of being poked with a thousand tiny glass spears.

ZoeNekros: On a different note... I don't understand the glove requirement, if it's not just PR. One should certainly should wear gloves while preparing it, but brief contact isn't a big deal, and you'll mostly only touch the bun. I'd be careful and all, but I'd much rather eat gloveless.

Obviously, you've never cut up hot peppers then accidentally rubbed your eyes or went to the bathroom. I accidentally tortured my wife once, the evening after preparing dinner with hot peppers... vigorously rubbing places with mucous membrane with a hand that hasn't been adequately cleaned after cutting hot peppers leaves a burn the likes of which you haven't experienced... ever (especially if you then finish and give yourself a major burn as well).

Anyway... the gloves are for protecting your sensitive parts (any of them) later.

The ability to taste is highly genetic, and some people taste spicy much more strongly than others. I always wondered what percentage of chili heads actually taste spicy like an average person.

As an analogy, vision differs greatly among people. It isn't too impressive when a blind guy tells you that he likes to stare directly into the sun and then lectures you about the subtle nuances of the way it gently warms your face.

CSB: A few years ago, a few of my coworkers decided to go to lunch at a hot wings place a few miles from the office. When they arrived, they decided to attempt to eat the "challenge wings", which as I understand it are hot wings heavily coated in a sauce made from ghost peppers, ghost pepper extract, and a bit of pure capsaicin for good measure. I didn't go, but I heard that one of them managed to eat one wing, another managed to eat half a wing, and the rest struggled to finish one bite.

Later that afternoon, I had a meeting with two people who went, and they were in so much stomach pain that they couldn't concentrate at all. And after seeing them writhing in pain in their chairs, I was glad I didn't join them.

/likes hot and spicy food as long as it tastes good and doesn't burn on the way out

"the Scoville Scale - the scientific measurement of how hot chillies are"

It's useful, but it really isn't scientific.

Reminds me of the first time I introduced a friend to Scotch Bonnets. "Be careful. You might want to use gloves when you cut them, and for God's sake, don't touch your eyes or mucus membranes with anything that's come into contact with them."

"Oh, but it's OK to EAT them?"

Thisbymaster: Why? You can't enjoy it and it only brings pain.

That's why you have to go above and beyond... after a certain point, it stops being "hot and spicy" and goes into inducing localized shock, essentially snapping the pain receptors shut, then as the substance makes its way down to your stomach, the hairs on your back and neck raise, your face and fingers tingle as your body produces both adrenaline and endorphins in reaction to the substance...

And the output of adrenaline is constant, so your mind races, your heart races, and you don't sleep...

While I'm not a fan of hot for the sake of being hot (I've seen some pretty ridiculous recipes for hot wings and chili, and some of that stuff on Man vs. Food is simply beyond my understanding), that burger actually looks pretty good. I'd give it a try.
