EightyEight: I've eaten a few habaneros on a bet/dare, that was enough pain for me. While i like spicy heat, food shouldn't hurt.
Someone should tell these yahoo's its better to hold the milk in your mouth, or even better a spoonful of sour cream and just keep it in your mouth.


people have different tolerances.  as do body parts.  for example, i was eating boiled crawfish last weekend at the best place on earth to eat boiled crawfish (cajun claws).  the heat level is perfect for the taste (not too hot), but somehow my hands did not agree.  they were on fire for hours.  some people call it capsicin poisoning.  all i know was that the heat level was perfect for eating, but not for touching.

then, of course, was the next day.  not a good day.  the heat level has not good for final expurgation.

I think it's hilarious that the capsicum family of plants has evolved this specific defense to keep mammals away from their fruit so birds would spread the seeds, but it turns out there's a species of mammal that actually likes having its mouth burned and has spread those seeds further than any bird could have.

I ate a whole habanero once. It was not pleasant but I did it cause some dudes said I was a pussy if I didn't. You just can't make the burning stop. You just can't. I'd do it again though, it was a good laugh and it can't actually hurt you.

Well LSD has made me vomit and hallucinate too, and that's also non-toxic.

Vomiting on LSD would not be a good thing. You must have felt you were turning inside out.


It's not as bad as you would think.  You know how sometimes after you vomit you feel like you have been purged and everything is all better now?  It's like that, only 100x stronger.  So it's like, "uh oh, I'm gonna be sick...HURRRCK...ahhhh, much better...man, that looks crazy...I'm gonna go wander off in that field now!"

Edymnion: Thunderboy: Wouldn't drinking oil (yuck) just make it far worse?  I thought alcohol was the best choice for that sort of thing.

Nope, alcohol is the worst thing you can do, even worse than water.

See, the molecule that makes peppers hot (capsaicin) dissolves in alcohol.  While at first this makes it sound like a great idea, dissolve and flush it out, what it really does is applies an even coat of the stuff all over the inside of your mouth and your tongue, which means there is no escape.

Trust me, I grow ghost peppers and t.scorps and make vodka infusions with them.  You can't taste the heat at all in the shot until after it evaporates off, and then its full out thermonuclear war in your mouth.


Ah, makes sense.  I don't drink, so I've never tested it for myself.

The Snow Dog:  I think alcohol is okay, but you'd need a good amount of it. Milk is supposed to be best because of the casein. (I think.) It binds with the pepper's oils and carries them away from your tongue. So, really, what I personally think would be best is to take a white Russian, add vanilla ice cream, and blend it into a milkshake.

Also, I seem to remember something about capsaicin being fat soluble, so oil might help some? Still rather go with the milkfat, though.


Also makes sense, I suppose.  If you drank enough to actually "flush it out", then great.  But now you're unconscious.  I've always gone with milk/bread which seems to help.  I guess i was thinking that swigging some EVOO would simply accomplish what not enough alcohol would - distribute it evenly, only without the evaporation.

Whatever, I'm going to get some tacos.

My GF and I are trying to eat hotter and hotter things.  We can down BW3 Blazing Wings like they are nothing.

We are working our way up to the super hot wing level.  There is one bar in particular that we want to get on the wall of fame for and we thing we are getting close.

At this point, a wing coated in Daves Insanity Sauce has a bit of bite to it, but it is certianly tollerable.  Shouldn't be long now.

Over time, you do gain a tolerance for spicy food.  Avoid spicy food for a solid month, and you lose most of that tolerance.  It's not that hard to scale up to super spicy stuff if you take it at a reasonable pace.

Back when I was eating spicy food pretty regularly, I used to hose down a sub sandwich in daves ultimate insanity sauce, like you'd put ketchup on a burger, and I'd do alright.  I had a jar of dried ghost peppers on my desk at work, and my last day there - since no one had taken the 'eat one and see if you die' challenge, I had one.  It was miserably hot, but it only lasted about 5 minutes and then I was fine.

I also got some 8 million scoville extract, made chili with it.  Pretty much the hottest thing I have ever eaten in my life.  I had a spoonful of the chili and I was drooling and spitting for the next 10 minutes - but after 8 hours of slow cooking, it was much more mild.

Drink black tea to neutralize the burn... seriously.

When I was a kid my mom and step dad brought me to this Thai place. He and I order some noodles that had these spicy black pepper thingies in it. The waiter was very insistent that we don't eat the peppers. Well my step dad who was a complete hard ass (he once crushed his hand in between a houseboat and a dock and barely grunted) decides to chomp down on one and start chewing. After about 20 seconds he says it's not hot at all so I stupidly chomped on one of mine. Well the delayed reaction started hitting him and he turned beet red and started sweating like crazy. Shortly after my mouth started burning like nothing I've ever experienced. The waiter sees us and rushes over as we're guzzling water and he says to stop drinking the water and slam some tea (which was already on the table). Sure enough it got the burning down to a tolerable level rather quickly.

No, I'm not dumb enough to drink this stuff myself (other than the first time), I take it to parties and find the biggest drunk guy in there and tell him he's not man enough to do a shot of it. Invariably they say it was nothing, then about 60 seconds later they're begging for the sweet release of death.

Yeah I puked up KFC too, the second time I dropped acid. It was terrible but very relieving. I ate some peanut butter toast a couple hours later and I honestly at that time felt like it was the best thing I ever did for my body. Ripples of joy radiating from my belly.

arguably racist, but that makes perfect sense. capsaicin is like alcohol, it rapidly perfuses all tissues. mace in the eyes is only a little different from mace in the mouth.

I'd always heard that sugar helps.  The Scoville scale is based on how much sugar and water is needed to make the heat undetectable.

Deliciousness... however spicy for the sake of spicy isn't my bag. Sriracha is wicked hot but it has other stuff in  it that adds flavor around the burning. Also really bland stuff like noodles or rice are more interesting with some kick.

Sadly I can't eat the crazy hot stuff like I used to. I've got one curve in my intestines that has an ulcer or something and once the spice hits it I'm in excruciating pain. Especially with cheapo chemical spices like in cheap jerky or processed burritos.

Best cold remedy for me is a big bowl of hot curry chicken Pho. Gives me the leaks but burns out the face slime.

I bought a bottle of Dave's Ultimate Insanity Hot sauce a few years back.   One is supposed to use a single drop of this stuff to season foods, and even then it's pretty hot.

One summer day my wife decided to BBQ some burgers on the grill, and without thinking poured the entire bottle of Ultimate Insanity in with a bottle of BBQ sauce and used it to cook the burgers.

The kids were NOT impressed!   I was able to get down a burger with some discomfort, but no one else in the family could.

Are you arguing that it can or can not hurt you?

Capsaicin  isn't what does the harm, it's your bodies reaction to it that is the danger. the heat that you feel is a false trigger of a pain receptor. Capsaicin itself is very useful as an analgesic, blood glucose regulator, and anti-inflammatory.

At the Austin Hot Sauce Festival in 2006 I tried a little dollop of Dave's Insanity Sauce on a toothpick, just to experience it. It was pretty damn hot, but it actually tastes pretty good before the flustering began.

That's one of the reasons why people eat hot food. It's a way of experiencing pain that causes no harm, so you can see what exactly you can take. It also brings the endorphin rush later.
