Somebody's pepper company just sold 1,000 ghost peppers.

I think they got a Certificate of Achievement.
 Now, I don't know if you're familiar with the certificates, but it's actually a piece of paper signed by someone else (usually a complete stranger).  I understand, these things can be almost as valuable as something called a "Participation Trophy."


BUT WAIT!  THERE'S MORE!

They also got a sticker.

Actually, peppers won't do any permanent damage to you in any way. But you'll think they must have, especially the morning after.

"Reducing you to tears while you crap fire and pray for a popsicle" isn't permanent damage, though. At least, not physically.


I've been there.  There were tears of joy when the pain down there ceased after the 4th or 5th dump.  The sauce on those wangs had ghost peppers and pure capsaicin.

Because it's there / endorphin release

Pretty much.  You can get pretty damn high off of something really hot.

But ghost pepper is too much for me.

It's funny, in my lifetime peppers have changed so much.  20 years ago, there was pretty much nothing available that was too hot for me, not a sauce, and certainly not a pepper.  Then the extract sauces showed up, and I couldn't eat those straight.  And then the new peppers started showing up, and I can't enjoy those either.  I mean, sure, a bit of ghost pepper in something, fine, that's not a problem.  I've eaten curries and chilli with ghost pepper in them, and enjoyed them.

But I'm not going to pop a whole one in my mouth, ever.  I'm not even going to put a small slice of one directly in my mouth.  And I don't have a problem with eating raw habanero.

I love spicy food, but I cannot imagine something 10 times hotter than a habanero (and 500 times hotter than a jalapeno).


This.  I really do like spicy stuff a lot.  But it's still gotta have some flavor.  (I had a hot dog with some hot peppers on it just last night.)
But spicy just for the sake of burning your face off just doesn't make sense.

Case in point...  I like jalepenos quite a lot.  But I'm used to the pickeled sort you get on sammiches and stuff.  I made the mistake of eating a fresh one that I had just picked out of my garden once.  Oh lord, I thought I was gonna die!!  I couldn't taste anything for hours after that.

So, to recap...
Spicy = great!
TOO spicy = I don't get it.

I've never tried that. Wouldn't you have to first expand the nozzle hole at the end of the tube?


Nozzle?
No you just chill the bag and the tube. You don't want to expand anything. OW OW OW
You put the aloe in the freezer and don't let it freeze. Or, just leave it in a cooler with ice in it.
Load your bag with iced aloe.
Use a couple of ice cubes to numb up the area of application first.


Let me numb that up for you.
Oh num num num num


Anyway, If you use a nozzle, use a polished, stainless steel one with a big hole in the end. Minimal diameter.
You can get one in a surgical supply store or on St Catherine Street in Montreal.

CSB:

We experimented in giving Tabasco sauce to the kids when there was a lot of lying going on. We have moved past that but the 9 year old, who is a male drama queen, was flipping out when I put a dash on his tongue. Jumping around, throwing a fit, gross over exaggeration. After a short time of this he yelled "Can I please just drink some water?!?!?"

"Sure"

*drinks water*

"It's not helping!"

"I know, it actually makes it worse. You should try milk or bread."


He was so pissed.

One of my favorite lines by a Dane was one I heard in Baja.  Met a group of them backpacking their way up the Pan-American highway.  All shaggy beards and leather tans and swagger and names like Thor and Jørg.  This was a 12'-16' day at Punta Cabras, Baja Norte, I'm scared shiatless, it's pounding, spitting barrels, hard currents and rips, and this giant of a man is paddling around on a borrowed kid's dime-store Made-in-China kickboard with no fins, no wetsuit in 50º water, looks over at me in the lineup with a big smile and says "Ya, I think maybe I swallow a lot of water today."  Super serious group of experienced, hard-scrabble surfers erupts into applause and laughter, and the guy gets every wave he wants with no argument from the peanut gallery.  farking Danes.

Sapper_Topo: Misconduc: Yeah well, I tried to eat a piece of a ghost pepper once, I usually eat very hot thai and indian food so I thought I could handle it, turns out my ass was on fire for 3 days, ever shiat fire? I came close to it. Let alone the stomach cramps I had for 2 days.
I was <---> close to going to the hospital, having your ass on fire is nothing funny to go through.

Same I eat a lot of spicy ethnic foods. Last winter I was at a poker game and we were all getting rather sloppy drunk and the host pulls out a bottle of ghost pepper hot sauce that he made. Me thinking I eat hot stuff all the time I figured I would give it a shot. Put a big dash on a tortilla chip and HOLY HELL FIRE! I leterally thought it was going to make me throw up. And I dont mean nausea, I mean my stomach just flat out wanted to reject it. The day after was pure hell beer poops mixed with ghost pepper was like getting prison raped with a baseball bat made of fire!

TLDR; Ghost peppers make pain in many different ways.


Funny, it was at a Poker game as well (I built my own table from scratch and invited friends to shove their beer in my fridge hoping they would forget about it).

Yes, Corona and Ghost peppers do not to go together, that watery shiat the next day is so damn brutal. I've broken bones before, and I have cluster headaches, i've never had anything more painful then a watery ass on fire. I thought nothing could top Cluster headaches, damn was I wrong on so many levels.

My mouth was on fire, but nothing like my ass by far, at least if you hold milk in there long enough you won't feel much.

Orgasmatron138: What the hell is the upside to something like that?


Some people get some kinda pleasurable rush out of eating painfully hot stuff. I don't get it myself. I like a bit of heat in the appropriate dishes, but the flavor matters a lot more to me. And I hate when people randomly hot up stuff that doesn't need it. I had a pulled-pork barbecue sandwich in New York, and they put sliced jalapeños on it. Gross.

So is the popsicle supposed to be used as a suppository in this instance? You seem to  have experience to share.

No, they're different peppers.  They're very similar, but the scotch bonnet has a sweeter flavor, while I find the habanero to be "muskier".

Saying you did it, maybe interesting stories to tell.  My oldest wanted to grow them in the garden last summer so he could tell all his friends at school about it and show them off.  So I made a deal with him, if we grow it, we have to taste them.  We did and took pictures/movies and now he has a fun story to tell.

Back in the '90's, I considered myself something of a chilihead. I had built my tolerance up enough to munch down jalapenos like candy, and Tabasco may as well have been mother's milk. I could choke down a habanero or Scotch bonnet, albeit with red face, runny nose and tears. If anyone even then had offered me a ghost pepper, and I'd done the research to see what they were about, I would have told that person to EABOD. No way in Hell.

Habanero is already too much for my palate. (I like spicy food. My threshold just isn't that high.) I can't imagine ghost pepper heat levels, either. Where do they cultivate them, anyway? Hell?
 
2014-06-11 06:27:28 PM
I have a few chilli plants including maruga scorpions.

They really are that hot. I have about 10 peppers ripening and I think that will last me for the rest of my life...


The ones I use most are the ones you get in thailand in a curry or stir fry. Very nice.
