Ian Rothwell, 55, took over an hour to polish off "The Widower" - which tops a whopping six million units on the scoville scale.
The curry is so dangerous to make it has to be prepared by chefs wearing goggles and a face mask.
The dish is stuffed with 20 super-spicy Naga Infinity Chillies and is served with a health warning.


I don't think it works that way.  A Naga Infinity is about a million on the scoville scale. You can't really sum them together.  If you eat a bunch of Jalapenos it's not the equivalent hotness of eating a Thai chili.

I really don't get it. I understand heat and spice is enjoyable up to a certain level. However once you get to the extreme levels, is there really much flavor or is it all heat and burning? How is that enjoyable? I guess there is something to be said for having a tolerance for pain by eating these things, but if it takes a mask and goggles to make, perhaps that is some indication that you really shouldn't be eating it.

Cilantro is best used sparingly as it has a strong flavor.  However foo foo fusion chefs and pseudo foodies spread it over food in handfuls and completely ruin any subtle a dish might have.

My wife makes a san cocho with pork spine and adds a teaspoon per bowl served, and you never should cook with it, always add it fresh to individual servings.

"Ring Of Fire"


Love is a burning thing
and it makes a firery ring
bound by wild desire
I fell in to a ring of fire...

I fell in to a burning ring of fire
I went down,down,down
and the flames went higher.
And it burns,burns,burns
the ring of fire

The taste of love is sweet
when hearts like our's meet
I fell for you like a child
oh, but the fire went wild..

I have a theory that this song is based on the prison slang for the anus or anal sex, which is, IIRC, "ring of fire".

Perfect spice is when you feel some burning, a light sweat, nose runs just a little, then you can actually taste the food even better and you get a big endorphin buzz. However, the level you can tolerate keeps going up naturally if you do it often, which is why people keep pushing it.

As described he's not enjoying it at all, and probably not tasting anything either. It's purely for the bragging rights at that point.

Johnny Cash is one of the few "country" singers I like and respect a good deal. His prison songs and others are genuine Old Country and genuine folk music, ballads of America disguised as "C&W". Since "C&W" became half rock and roll and half fruity glam, it has lost a lot of its musical and cultural value. Not to mention "class", "style" and "taste".

Over the years country music has assimulated a lot of black music (Motown, the blues, gospel, soul, lounge-singing, etc.) but even stealing from black Americans was not able to save it from smaltzy, kitschy white bread America; Branson, Missouri;  and Nashville glitz.

Long may Johnny Cash and the Old Country classics live on. The preserve some of the best of black and white music in America during a particularly inventive and productive period. A lot of them wander off into other genres, the way that Tom Waits wandered from Rockabilly to Old Black Blues (I suspect he is the most successful self-made old black bluesman in America if you count only skinny white punks who made the musical transition from poor imitations to as close to the real thing as you can get without reincarnation).

As the old maxim puts it, mediocrty imitates, genius steals.

I bet dudes bunghole will be punishing him for that. I don't eat really spicy stuff that often. I can do jalapenos pretty easy, and that's about it. A buddy of mine likes to throw some goofy ass peppers (and no, I still don't know what kind he used) into his chili. I was able to eat it even though my eyes were watering and I was sucking on crackers to dull the pain on my tongue but ye gods the next day was absolute hell. I felt like I was shiatting molten lava. It hurt to wipe, and after I was done my balloon knot was left a quivering mass for hours. No joke, it was like my sphincter had Parkinsons and was going through a bad attack. Never, ever again.

Back in my more aggressive chile-head days, a friend and I went to a Thai restaurant, and I orded a chicken dish "Thai hot". The waiter taking my order said "Thai hot? You sure?" And when I said yes, he said "Oooooooh-kaaaaay," A few minutes later, the cook came from the kitchen waving the ticket, saying "it say here you want food Thai hot. You sure?" I said yes again, and he said "Ooooooh-kay!" When the food came out, I dug in, and it was the most monstrously spicy thing I had ever eaten. I felt like my head was melting as it leaked various fluids from every available orifice, but it was pure pleasure as the endorphins kicked in. I didn't hallucinate, but I think I might have if it'd been much hotter. I polished it off, and the waiter came back with the check, saying "damn. I never before see no white man eat Thai hot food," I felt especially good for the rest of the day.

How about a link to the Wikipedia page?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velocity-addition_formula
The simplest formula for adding relativistic velocities (speeds, in the simplest case, assuming everything is along one straight like) is just w = (v+u)*g where w is the "total velocity", v and u are the velocities of the two objects being considered, and "g" is gamma, the Lorentz factor, which is

w = (v+u)*g
g = 1/(1-sqrt(v^2/c^2))

or

w = (v+u)/(1+(vu/c^2))
Or something like that.  I'm pretty sure that's not actually right, honestly, but it's been a long time since uni and I don't remember physics anymore.  And, no offense, but I'm not going to take the time to reeducative myself just so I can get the joke spot-on.

Anyway, I guess that's the pseudocode you're looking for.

Where H= heat
Mc = mass of one chili
S= Scoville units
n= number of chillis
V=volume of dish
Bf=beer factor

buckler: Back in my more aggressive chile-head days, a friend and I went to a Thai restaurant, and I orded a chicken dish "Thai hot". The waiter taking my order said "Thai hot? You sure?" And when I said yes, he said "Oooooooh-kaaaaay," A few minutes later, the cook came from the kitchen waving the ticket, saying "it say here you want food Thai hot. You sure?"

I didn't hallucinate, but I think I might have if it'd been much hotter. I polished it off, and the waiter came back with the check, saying "damn. I never before see no white man eat Thai hot food," I felt especially good for the rest of the day.



I'll drag out my Thai css, then...

My first experience eating food in Thailand was in the airport hotel restaurant.  I was traveling with about 50 other Americans to Nepal, and we stopped overnight in Bangkok.  It was too late at night, and we were getting up too early in the morning for the next flight, to venture outside the hotel, so we ate at the hotel restaurant.

Because it was a restaurant that catered to travelers and tourists, the menu was in both Thai and English, and it had little pepper icons next to some dishes to indicate that they're spicy.  Now, just a few days before, I had had a "pepper party" to give away my hot sauce collection before I left the USA, and we had chowed down on jalapeños and habaneros, so I thought I was all Billie Bad Ass when it came to spicy food, and when the waiter came over, I indicated the dish with the little pepper symbol.

"Are you sure?"  The waiter asked.  "That's a very spicy dish."

The three or four other people at the table (whom I barely knew) looked on as I assured the waiter that yes, indeed, I wanted -that- dish.  The waiter tried a second and even third time to convince me that it was too spicy and I wouldn't be able to enjoy it, but I kept insisting and he eventually gave up and took everyone else's order.  After a while he came back with everybody's food and we began digging in.

My dish -was- very spicy, but it was also quite tasty and I was enjoying small bites in between frequent sips of whatever beverage I was drinking (tea, maybe).  Then I started to feel my nose starting to run.  Not a big issue.  My nose has run before plenty of times when I ate spicy food.  I took one more bite and was just about to get up and visit the bathroom to wipe my nose when one of the other Americans at the table looked at me and said, "Your nose is bleeding."

"Don't be silly," I said.  I never get nosebleeds."

"Uh, yeah," chimed in another diner at the table.  "It's bleeding alright."

I hurried to the bathroom, and, sure enough, blood was trickling out of my nose.

After I cleaned up I went back to the table and finished my meal.  It was worth it.

While I will agree with you on currywurst, and their stupid curry Ketchup, street food in Germany in general is awesome. I especially loved the Doner Kebap sammiches from the Turkish vendors and I knew this one place that did awesome little schnitzel sammiches with that crusty bread you see everywhere over there. I was actually kind of disappointed in the sausages in Germany.

buckler: Back in my more aggressive chile-head days, a friend and I went to a Thai restaurant, and I orded a chicken dish "Thai hot".


ciberido: I'll drag out my Thai css, then...


Well, how about a third CSB. The first time my wife and I visited our favorite Thai restaurant we ordered a few dishes Thai hot. The waitress gave us a funny look and asked if we were sure. After a brief back-and-forth, we finally convinced her we really wanted Thai hot. Dishes came out, deliciously spicy. She said we were the first white people she had ever served anything Thai hot.

Some time later we went back and had a different waitress. We ordered our food "Laos hot" and she was even more stubborn than the first server. When our food came out, she just brought us a plate of freshly chopped Thai chilis, along with the standard Thai "spice tray" you often see. The dishes themselves were not that spicy, but we appreciated the plate of chilis.
 
2013-01-04 10:17:25 PM  
This reminds me of the time I was in Thailand and was checking in at a new hotel on a beautiful island. As I entered the reception area, I walked past two be-dreaded hippie chicks that were scarfing down a plate of what looked to be green pasta.

They were sweating and moaning as they dug into the glassy noodles covered in what looked to be seaweed. I stopped a minute to marvel at their behavior. Their faces where flushed a bright red, boogers running out their noses and their eyes squinted almost shut. They were perspiring from every pore and orifice, drenched in their hippie stank as they hooted and hollered their way through the plate in front of them.

I couldn't help but ask: "What are you eating?"

"Thai Chili Salad", they replied.

The look of pain on their faces was unmistakeable. Those must be some spicy ass chilis.

"WHY?!" I asked. "That looks painful!"

"We're hallucinating", one of them replied.

"Like visions?" I asked.

"No, auditory. We can hear the angels singing in our ears."

I backed away slowly. Different strokes, I guess.

Hottest thing I ever had: freshly-caught crab, served completely raw, in Thailand. I grew up in Asia, mind you, and my parents liked going places where people had never seen a tourist before and not a single person spoke a word of English. And my mum lived in Malaysia and Singapore as a child and used to prepare curries with the (local) neighbors growing up, plus my folks had a taste for good Indian food. So I know authentic Thai food, and I know other genres of authentic Southeast Asian / Indian spicy food.

So, back to this dish. I say it's served raw, but it doesn't look raw. The meat turns milky white as if it had been gently cooked, but it's just the acidity of an insane amount of Thai chilies and Thai lime juice. Most of it wasn't really *that* hot. But there was one bit where I apparently got a bit of the hottest chili I've ever had, before or since.

I was only in my teens at the time, but I know now that I got a seriously full-on adrenaline rush off that one bite. Felt like somebody was aiming a Water Pik shower head at my face, and I'd just swallowed the sun.

Would love to know what the hell that chili was, and why it was so much hotter than every other Thai chili I've ever had. All I can think is some other kind of chili accidentally snuck into the dish.

Gyrfalcon: Is this something you know from experience, or are you talking out of a virgin asshole?


Experience.  The hottest peppers I've had are naga jolokias (ghost chilis), which are around a million on the scoville scale.  I put them in stir frys, but more often I boil it in water, then use the water as a base for soups or hot chocolate.  I also have naga jolokia flakes that I put on pasta, pizza, rice, etc.  The heat is all in the mouth (and god forbid, your eyes if you accidentally touch them).  Never had a burning asshole from it.  Oddly enough, I have gotten it from ground white pepper.

It's one type of stupid to eat a nasty food because of the taste. (Limburger Cheese.) However, it's an entirely different form when you eat it because it burns the living shiat out of you -- and hasn't much of a taste at all.

Masochism.

I like a little spice in my food, but I like the taste the spice adds also. Such as basic black pepper or pickled Pepperocini. When it comes to eating something akin to fresh lava from a volcano just to prove you can, I question the sanity of the diner.

I've watched that TV program with the chubby guy who wanders the world eating assorted and often repulsive native foods, but you know the natives consume them because of taste. (That, and because past food shortages required them to get used to eating anything which creeps, crawls or hops.) Most such societies developed ways to season such food to their liking.

(However, Lukefish, the 'delicacy' that is dried and soaked in lye before preperation makes me wonder even about that.)

I still think one of the bravest people ever had to be the first one who tried an oyster. It has the consistency of snot.

It has to be a form of insanity to eat something so hot that you can't taste it, get to feel it burning your innards for hours and later, pass it like dumping a load of molten steel. Not to mention the reactions it has within your body that cause sweating, hallucinations, irregular heartbeats and, at times, vomiting.

The curry is so dangerous to make it has to be prepared by chefs wearing goggles and a face mask.
The dish is stuffed with 20 super-spicy Naga Infinity Chillies and is served with a health warning.

I don't think it works that way.  A Naga Infinity is about a million on the scoville scale. You can't really sum them together.  If you eat a bunch of Jalapenos it's not the equivalent hotness of eating a Thai chili.


I'm waiting for someone to create a formula for adding chilis.

Something like a Lorentz transformation, maybe.  Scoville transformation, anyone?

Maybe something simpler, I don't know.

H=(Mc*S*n)/(V+Bf)

Where H= heat
Mc = mass of one chili
S= Scoville units
n= number of chillis
V=volume of dish
Bf=beer factor

Beer factor could in theory be any beverage


with scoville being a measure of capsaicin density, you could almost just add them. the volume of a pepper related to the volume of the dish, if not neglegible, is marginal at best.

I guess there is something to be said for having a tolerance for pain by eating these things, but if it takes a mask and goggles to make, perhaps that is some indication that you really shouldn't be eating it.

Can you translate that into pseudocode? AFAIK all higher math can be represented as an algorithm, and I have no clue how to read that.

How about a link to the Wikipedia page?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velocity-addition_formula
The simplest formula for adding relativistic velocities (speeds, in the simplest case, assuming everything is along one straight like) is just w = (v+u)*g where w is the "total velocity", v and u are the velocities of the two objects being considered, and "g" is gamma, the Lorentz factor, which is

w = (v+u)*g
g = 1/(1-sqrt(v^2/c^2))

or

w = (v+u)/(1+(vu/c^2))
Or something like that.  I'm pretty sure that's not actually right, honestly, but it's been a long time since uni and I don't remember physics anymore.  And, no offense, but I'm not going to take the time to reeducative myself just so I can get the joke spot-on.

Anyway, I guess that's the pseudocode you're looking for.


Thanks, i'm sure if I look at it long enough I will get it.

I have a friend who love kimchi.  Sadly for him, he lives in a town that has no Korean restaurant.  Every time he comes to visit, we go to a Korean restaurant and he scarfs down the kimchi with his fingers (which is a tad disgusting but never mind that).  His eyes water.  And EVERY SINGLE TIME he rubs his eyes with the hands that have kimchi-juice all over them.

Granted not nearly as hot as this.  But enough to make him regret.

The flavor is still there, but the heat provides an endorphin rush, which provides a mild high. Yes, the heat is a natural defense mechanism of the chile plant, but contrary to folklore it doesn't damage or dull the taste reception of the tastebuds. What it does do is stimulate the transmission of "substance P", the main pain neurotransmitter (as I understand), fooling the body into thinking it's being damaged when it isn't at all. It's all an elaborate natural ruse.

Not just girls, wear latex or nitrile gloves when chopping peppers. Especially habaneros, and make sure you open a window or have some air circulating and cover your eyes. Sometimes you will also need to wear a face mask.

I don't like cilantro either, but not because it tastes like soap. I don't like it because every meal I've ever eaten that contained it tasted like they added the entire Fall cilantro harvest. There are very few restaurants I've eaten at that don't add cilantro with a snow shovel. I understand food goes through fads, and I'm dying for cilantro to finally have had its day, so that restaurant food tastes like food again. I'm getting sick of ordering a stir-fried cilantro with a cilantro salad and cilantro juice, with cilantro pie for afters.

Avocados can die, too, for the same reason.

I didn't realize how bad the cilantro thing had gotten until I ate at a restaurant that actually used an appropriate amount of it. It was like, "Hey, I can taste cilantro in this, but it also tastes like the other stuff they put in it. The many other ingredients aren't merely a base for cilantro." Fortunately, the cilantro thing does seem to be dying down a bit. I can now order a steak without it looking like they buried it under a garden salad.

I farked myself up with some Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce once, and was sick for a couple days (I think messing up my GI tract stressed out my immune system). I threw out the Ultimate Insanity Sauce and the Mad Dog's Revenge. I try to stick with more reasonable sauces. I have a bottle of Dave's Gourmet Scotch Bonnet sauce, and it is quite pleasant. It must not be too concentrated. (Ferretman's list has them at 300,000 scoville; I had no idea that fresh Scotch Bonnets were so hot).

Cousin of my wife's gave me a couple of ghost chilis. Having eating one chicken wing with sauce made from the same plant, I knew not to eat them. I just dried and ground them, so I can use them sparingly. Those ghost peppers are real asshole-burners.

bluedevil: I farked myself up with some Dave's Ultimate Insanity Sauce once, and was sick for a couple days (I think messing up my GI tract stressed out my immune system). I threw out the Ultimate Insanity Sauce and the Mad Dog's Revenge. I try to stick with more reasonable sauces. I have a bottle of Dave's Gourmet Scotch Bonnet sauce, and it is quite pleasant. It must not be too concentrated. (Ferretman's list has them at 300,000 scoville; I had no idea that fresh Scotch Bonnets were so hot).

Cousin of my wife's gave me a couple of ghost chilis. Having eating one chicken wing with sauce made from the same plant, I knew not to eat them. I just dried and ground them, so I can use them sparingly. Those ghost peppers are real asshole-burners.


Dave's Insanity can be really nasty on the GI tract. Once used it straight as a dip sauce on a bet... that was a mistake I will not repeat again.

As long as I don't go overboard with it or the Mad Dog and mix it into other sauces, generally I find it doesn't cause much chaos.

"Ring of Fire" or "The Ring of Fire" is a country music song popularized by Johnny Cash and co-written by June Carter Cash (wife of Johnny Cash) and Merle Kilgore. The single appears on Cash's 1963 album, Ring of Fire: The Best of Johnny Cash. The song was originally recorded by June's sister, Anita Carter, on her Mercury Records album Folk Songs Old and New (1963) as "(Love's) Ring of Fire".

The song was recorded on March 25, 1963, and became the biggest hit of Johnny Cash's career, staying at number one on the charts for seven weeks. It was certified Gold on January 21, 2010 by the R.I.A.A. and has also sold over 1.2 million digital downloads.[1]

I can't believe it took so many posts to bring this part up. His bunghole will probably never let him live this down.

Daedalus27: I really don't get it. I understand heat and spice is enjoyable up to a certain level. However once you get to the extreme levels, is there really much flavor or is it all heat and burning? How is that enjoyable? I guess there is something to be said for having a tolerance for pain by eating these things, but if it takes a mask and goggles to make, perhaps that is some indication that you really shouldn't be eating it.


Buffalo Wild Wings has the perfect example of this.

Second hottest sauce on third menu, "Wild" has great flavor, and is quite spicy.

The hottest sauce "Death" has ZERO flavor whatsoever, and is simply hot with no other merits.

I always go for their Wild sauce, or the Mango Habanero.

SwiftFox: Ordering from the Thai menu in Thailand stories?

I've got the big dish of approximately half-and-half Thai chillis, half anchovies.

Anyone else order that? Isn't it incredibly edible?


I had a roommate who challenged a Thai woman to make food so spicy he couldn't eat it. He ate it, but it sounded like he was fighting a coyote in the bathroom when he had to poo the next morning.

OK, my story: I love spicy food, and went up to Buford Highway (north Atlanta), which is called "Chambodia" by certain locals because it has a huge Asian population. I was always digging around there, looking for little hole-in-the-wall places to shop and eat. There was a tiny (mostly abandoned) mini-mall; the old building had "Post of ice" on the wall. Inside were two little Thai ladies, sisters who were around 70 years old.The menu was on one of those white boards into which you push little plastic letters. Across the top it said this:

"TENKYU!" I assumed incorrectly that this was the name of the place, but it transliterated as "Thank you!"

I ordered lunch, chicken and fish sauce with chilies, along with a side of long beans. By the time I was done I had to get a friend to drive I was so endorphined out. Tenkyu, indeed!

Great story. Here in faraway Australia my family and I once found a shop selling the Insanity Sauce referred to above. Advertised as "the hottest sauce you've ever tasted" I approached the storekeep and told him I had been sorely disappointed by such claims in the past. He simply offered me a toothpick and suggested I take the smallest possible sample. I was rolling on the floor for the next five minutes, eyes watering and the kids pissing themselves laughing at me.

We bought two bottles and they lasted us well over a year. I've never found it again and should really check out the possibility of ordering it online. Awesome stuff.

Their hottest sauce is called "Blazing." I just had it last week. I'd say you're right about the flavor.
They claim it's 350k scoville. It's pretty hot, but I don't think it's 350k personally. I have some Dave's Sudden Death sauce at home that is supposed to be 300-400k, and it's much, much hotter. Way too much extract though, gives it a funny aftertaste.
Best thing to do at b-dubs is order your wings with a better sauce, and just get some blazing on the side to add heat.

ciberido: rev. dave: ciberido: RodneyToady: Ian Rothwell, 55, took over an hour to polish off "The Widower" - which tops a whopping six million units on the scoville scale.
The curry is so dangerous to make it has to be prepared by chefs wearing goggles and a face mask.
The dish is stuffed with 20 super-spicy Naga Infinity Chillies and is served with a health warning.

I don't think it works that way.  A Naga Infinity is about a million on the scoville scale. You can't really sum them together.  If you eat a bunch of Jalapenos it's not the equivalent hotness of eating a Thai chili.


I'm waiting for someone to create a formula for adding chilis.
[upload.wikimedia.org image 316x56]
Something like a Lorentz transformation, maybe.  Scoville transformation, anyone?
[renshaw.teleinc.com image 132x98]
Maybe something simpler, I don't know.

Can you translate that into pseudocode? AFAIK all higher math can be represented as an algorithm, and I have no clue how to read that.

How about a link to the Wikipedia page?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Velocity-addition_formula
The simplest formula for adding relativistic velocities (speeds, in the simplest case, assuming everything is along one straight like) is just w = (v+u)*g where w is the "total velocity", v and u are the velocities of the two objects being considered, and "g" is gamma, the Lorentz factor, which is

w = (v+u)*g
g = 1/(1-sqrt(v^2/c^2))

or

w = (v+u)/(1+(vu/c^2))
Or something like that.  I'm pretty sure that's not actually right, honestly, but it's been a long time since uni and I don't remember physics anymore.  And, no offense, but I'm not going to take the time to reeducative myself just so I can get the joke spot-on.

Anyway, I guess that's the pseudocode you're looking for.


I was told there would be no math.

Hotter peppers actually have more delicious and complex flavors. Much more enjoyable than eating say....a jalapeno. But you do have to deal with the heat. But then again that isn't that bad either, it gives you a rush of endorphins and almost makes you feel "high". The hotter it is, the stronger this feeling is. There's also the challenge of eating it, how it makes food interesting, etc.

I just had Bhut Jolokia wings tonight, covered and dipped in sauce made from Bhuts I grew this past summer. Very hot, painful, but delicious. I'd give this curry a shot, but I have to say it probably doesn't taste very good. There's no pepper with a rating of 6,000,000 scoville, in order to reach that high you'd have to add pure capsaicin. It'd taste like they coated it with pepper spray/bear mace.

I don't believe that for a second. The spice level of a chile has to do with nothing other than capsaicin content, which does not give the chile its flavor. I've eaten plenty of hot chiles of various varieties and, while some of the hotter ones do have unique flavors, many of them don't and plenty of milder chiles are just as flavorful or more so.

My favorite chiles, habanero, scotch bonnet, bhut jolokia, etc, all have very complex flavors that are influenced by their extreme heat. And that makes them delicious. About the only "mild" pepper I really like is a poblano, most aren't very pungent.
