A friend of a friend, who apparently has balls bigger than his brain, decided he was "man enough" to chug a bottle of Dave's Insanity Sauce during an afternoon of beer and grilling.  A quarter of the way into the bottle was all he got before the heat did him in.

Thankfully, one of the other guests had done a stint in the Navy as a hospital corpsman, and treated him like he was having a grand mal seizure after he collapsed, gasping for breath, and put him on his side, keeping his airway clear.

The paramedics were not amused when they had to intubate him for such a stupid reason.

Personally, I never understood the appeal of eating something that has zero flavor, and basically is a chemical burn.  I like spicy foods, and enjoy a healthy dose of heat on things like wings, pizza, nachos, etc, but the 30 quintillion Scoville Unit ULTRA BADASS GONZO SKULL FARKER IN SPAAACE hot sauces are pretty much pointless from a seasoning perspective.

I'm right there with you.  I absolutely love spicy foods but there IS a limit.  I want it to the point where I'm going to enjoy it, not to the point where I'm doing something stupid on a dare.  Any pepper above habanero is just unnecessary in my book.

You just need to wash it down with a nice high IBU IPA and a sip of Campari, and you've done the undrinkable trifecta.

The crazy hot ones are useful for adding heat without affecting the flavor of whatever you're making. I have a naga jolokia sauce that I use for that purpose, and while it does have a good flavor, it gives way to OMFGHOT almost immediately.

I've found that most of the hot ones for the sake of being hot have a bitter aftertaste. Or at least anything made via capsaicin extract, which is why I now avoid those.

So...what I'm getting from the dearth of details in this article is that someone got drunk, requiring medical assistance (as drunks often do) and it might have had nothing to do with the pepper? Nice clickbait there, Lou.

I've not had this pepper - yet - but I've had close. The only call I made was to the Whaaaaambulance and was just fine an hour later.

They are also useful in making your "hot sauce" (that has some flavor) actually hot.  Dave's is pretty cost effective as a capsaicin booster, but I try to make sure even the haberneros are diluted with food.  I'd really have to question how you managed to kill enough taste buds/brain cells already to even think of going for the high-scoville stuff straight.  And yes I laughed at Jeremy Clarkson's "reserve insanity sauce review".

We treated a fantabulous but obscure jazz guy to dinner one night. He got the jambalaya and without tasting it, he emptied the table's bottle of red tabasco sauce into it, sampled  it, then put about half the table's bottle of green tabasco sauce into it. He ate the jambalaya without comment after that.

I love the hot peppers, but I'm not ever going to eat a whole one.  You take a little here, and there, de seed them, mix it in.  It's the flavor and some heat that is delicious.

i like to put small quantities of the super hot ones in soup. i like the spice flavor as an alternative to salting and you get the heat without too much sugar/salt changing the underlying flavor. i do not understand the people who just eat the stuff to prove how tough they are though

You're kind of a condescending twat, aren't you? It doesn't require dead brain cells or taste buds to dip a toothpick in a bottle of hot sauce to taste it and see how much to use or if there's any weird flavors in it.

I spent a summer as a teen working and living with a family of Mexican Mennonites putting up grain bins across the prairies.   I started the summer with little appreciation for hot peppers but by the end of summer they sent me home with an entire case of hot peppers.  Hot foods are an acquired taste, and you work up SLOWLY.

I work in the wholesale produce Industry.
One time, I was BSing with a driver and he was telling me about how he loves hot peppers and nothing phases him.
So, I gave him a ghost chili.
He turned beet red, and squeaked out "Where's the pop machine? "
He slammed a couple of Cokes before he could talk again.

I'm good with hot spices yet some herbs just turn my stomach. Hot spices and sauces are fine, right now I'm using siracha sauce because most of the others Ive tried have tasted too vinegary . Lately I'm noticing that hot spices have a placebo effect (yeah, I dont think that's the right term but I cant think of it). It's gotten so bad that I just have to read an article about hot spices and my head starts to sweat. But I do love a good vindaloo.

Eventually this stupidity will escalate to "Oh yeah, well I ate 1/2 the fugu! Beat that!"

I'm not surprised they're the weakest.  That's a spicy group you got there to compare them to.  What are they?  I'm gonna guess 6 Carolina reapers, a bhut jolokia,  a serrano, and 4 either Caribbean reds or red savinas.

I tried some El Chupacabra Hot Sauce my brother sent me.  A couple of drops on a slice of pizza was tasty.  It's hot but not unbearable.  Too bad my stomach didn't agree.  Needed a bowl of ice cream and a couple of hours to settle things back down.

My tongue is burning just reading this thread. At work, some of the cooks knew my name only as "Sriracha." No, I actually don't like sriracha itself, but the sriracha mac sauce is actually pretty decent. 

I'm the kind that would do this as a crazy stupid dare. And I'd probably tell someone to hold my beer and watch this right before. *shrug* Sorry to any future paramedic that has to bail my butt out.

I bought some "red hot vodka" that had no heat whatsoever, so I added a couple teaspoons of ghost pepper flakes I dehydrated last year to the 750 mL bottle.  It is now undrinkably spicy, but it works pretty well as just a splash added to a margarita.

I totally agree that stuff like chugging a whole bottle of Insanity Sauce or that doing what the idiot(s) in the article did is stupid, but just a dab of habanero sauce?

Habanero is not an "endurance contest" unless you just have no real tolerance for heat at all, especially not a tiny dab. Likewise for tabasco - while a whole bottle worth on one plate is rather extreme, the sauce itself is not *that* hot. And most hab sauces (and the peppers themselves) have plenty of flavor.

yes, a ghost, some trinidad scorpions, some 7 pot primo (primeaux?), some purple pumpkins.  i've tried to get spome reapers from seed, but never got a real deal, I did get this yellow thing from the seeds that has been over wintered 3 years now and does nothing but produce.

Peppers are almost never meant to be eaten by themselves.  Scotch bonnet + rice is a Jamaican staple.  I doubt they'd consider it a "seasoning".

I worked for a Jamaican and he and his cousin would take a bite of scotch bonnet and then a bite of food.  Repeat until food is gone.
