LeroyBourne: I wanna fark up my stomach for life.


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.

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.

Look at the tough guys, eating hipster ghost peppers.  Enjoy the sweating, flaming shiatz, heart burn and disintegrated esophagusses.  Or is it esophagii?  Either way - morans.

Hot Pepper Gaming has a YouTube channel where people review video games while eating Habanero peppers covered with various hot sauces.

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

I've had a raw habanero once in my life, that was enough to last me a lifetime. :)

buckler: 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.


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.

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.

machoprogrammer: 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.


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.

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.

Turbo Cojones: LazyMedia: I bit into a Scotch Bonnet (100k-350k Scoville, vs. 1 million for a ghost pepper) once on a dare. Tasted exactly like tear gas. Had sense enough to spit it out.

Scotch Bonnet is what Jamaicans call a habanero.  Same same


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".

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

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.
