Canton: machoprogrammer: DarkVader: timujin: Orgasmatron138: What the hell is the upside to something like that?

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).

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?


I cannot handle a straight habanero (pickled I can usually handle just fine, like from Papa John's). I am not sure if anyone can eat them raw like nothing, but I wouldn't be shocked if there was someone out there who could.

They're going to be in trouble when the oil hits the anus.

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.

I chop up habeneros and eat them on hot dogs so I thought I was reasonably tough. Turns out even the weak-assed pickled ghosts peppers are significantly tougher than me.

Papa John's has pickled habaneros?  The only thing I've ever seen from there are jalapenos and pepperoncinis.

My experience with 1,000,000 SHU's was in the police academy. They attempted to prepare us for what was to come by showing us a video and a pie chart. It didn't work. My god did it NOT work. OC spray directly into both eyes. I saw hard dudes reduced to wailing for their mommies. It was THAT bad.

Surprisingly, Johnson's Baby Shampoo dulls the pain.

Uh, the Papa John's peppers are pepperoncini. You can order jalapenos on the pizza. I grow peppers, and jalapenos are the second most mild in my patch- I love them raw.

Fresh cayenne and tabasco peppers, on the other hand, have some serious heat. And my Thai plant got a late start, but I'm looking forward to those.

I picked up some Mrs. Renfro's Ghost Pepper salsa today, so I'm getting a kick...

It's spicy, but I've eaten hotter salsas. I'm guessing the actual amount of GP is pretty low.

This would be a great dudebro charity fundraiser - tell all the participants they can have the ghost pepper for free, but charge them $20 each for one of those little cartons of milk they serve in elementary school cafeterias.

I've found that to be really good when mixed with sour cream.
But dangerous, because you don't realize how much you're eating, and if you're not careful, you WILL pay for it later.

Whoops my bad. That explains why they aren't hot then!

That sounds delicious. I salute anyone that can eat habaneros raw, though. Well done.

Well, I don't know whether the peppers in that Habanero Jack cheese were pickled, but they were definitely too much. Only tried it once. Couldn't taste the cheese, because it was all heat, right away. What's the point of cheese if you can't taste it?

Meh. I like a nice, slow burn, the kind that creeps up on your sinuses...

Just for the lulz.


They make fake snuff out of mint leaves and other stuff to help people quit and ground cayenne is used to simulate the burn of normal dip.  It's actually not terrible.

Back in the 90's when I was doing alot of snowmobiling we would occasionally travel to Old Forge NY where there is a little joint called the Red Dog Inn.  They had a wing sauce called Armageddon that was just plain evil.  Best I could ever accomplish was 6 wings, and it took me a pitcher of beer to get through those (yes I know milk is better, but at the time that was not an option).  Anyhow one trip we had a couple of very cocky kids with us and talked them into trying the Armageddon challenge.  The first kid (21) got through 3 wings before the heat got so bad that he ran outside where it was well below freezing and started shoveling snow into his mouth and all over his face.  Not bad except for the fact that where he chose to seek relief for his overheated mouth was where many, many scores of drunken snowmobilers also chose to find a slightly different kind of relief.

Here's one of a guy eating a habanero covered with ghost pepper sauce that's kinda humorous:

I planted 12 Habanero plants last year and turned the resulting harvest into 2 quarts of hot sauce. I'm almost out and It barely seems spicy to me know.

I hope to add a few ghost peppers to this year's batch, if I can find them.

Ok Habaneros, depending on variety is around 100k scoville to 580k scoville. Ghost chilli ( Bhut Jolokia ), not the worst chili that exists because the trinidad scorpion is worst, is around 855k scoville. Its used as a weapon. On the upside, Habaneros were used for torture in the mayan days. They would put Habaneros on the tip of the penis or the clitoris of the unfortunate individual.

CSB: I once cut red habaneros chili without gloves, and then went pee-peeing. Since im a guy that involved touching the penis, and it hurts.

I usually go around with Javascript turned off, so the images didn't load when I tried. Seems all your images require JS and that was the problem.

I've never seen a site before that needs JS for ALL its images. Seems better if you don't require that.

 I've not heard that from anyone before, and everyone can view the site. As they're all mostly jpegs I don't know why you can't see the images. And, it's also not part of the webpage program I use, it would be weird for any site program to require java for non-moving images. I don't even have a gif on the site. Oh well, the vagueries of the internet,..

So, a guy whining about eating ketchup?

Wow.  What a wimp.

I mean, I wouldn't do that, just because I wouldn't drink three bottles of ketchup, but, um, sriracha isn't really hot.  But it's a farking sauce, not a drink.  What an idiot.

I didn't actually believe in endorphins until I ate a whole roasted ghost chili that a chef gave me.  It was one of the more painful experiences of my life until I got all lightheaded and floaty.  That shiat is real.  I was high for about 30 minutes.

Yeah about that... I eat ghost pepper anything I can and use fresh ones in my Holy Ghostpepper Chili recipe. I have NEVER dealt with any of those problems except sweats which is NOT exactly a big deal. Just because you can't handle something doesn't mean nobody can.

Wife was growing me some Trinidad Scorpions in her container garden. Asshole landlords stole the whole garden. Hope they bite into them unawares...

ekdikeo4: My girlfriend bought me some ghost pepper flakes for Xmas a couple of years ago.  Amazing stuff.

http://amzn.to/1ioCtji

Still have about 3/4 of it, too.  But I now use a couple of shakes of it on practically -everything-.


THANKS SO MUCH!! I had no idea this existed. I'm Indian, and love very spicy food. I use lots of crushed red pepper and/or sriracha, etc on most everything, but it's gotten to the point where I have to put so much stuff on to get the heat I like. This is a perfect solution. After 30+ years, its amazing the tolerance one can develop.
