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.

Johnny Cash and Tom Waits--two greats that you would not suspect that I love from looking at me.

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?


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.

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.

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.

On the other end of the scale I can safely say that if you eat enough mint you can feel it when you urinate. So I learned a couple of things that day. One is that mint does not break down in the digestive system. Two is that mint in excreted through urine.

Chameleon: Sgygus: You know what you don't do after chopping up hot peppers?  You don't touch yourself.  Because if you do, no amount of rubbing is going to make the screaming pain go away.

If you are a girl, DO NOT PEE for a few hours after making things with peppers.


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.

If you ever want to punish your boyfriend, cut up some chillis, rub them into your palms, and give him a handjob.

/Also works particularly well if you're into sadomasochism.

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.

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.

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

Maybe something simpler, I don't know.
