That's not how it works at his level.

There was a hot sauce store in Boston near where I grew up. They'd let you try samples of stuff before you bought it. Anyway, my father and I used to go there sometimes when I was a kid to take samples and see who would quit taking samples. This went on for years, and I slowly built up an unhealthy tolerance for spicy foods. It just doesn't phase me anymore. I even competed in those "who can eat the spiciest whatever" contests at hot sauce expos. The last contest I did we had "the pizza of death" which was a pizza with carolina reaper sauce, habenero cheese, and ghost pepper slices for a topping. If anyone remembers the Stupid Pet Tricks segment on David Lettermen, eating spicy food is my stupid pet trick.

This is what I've learned through my time in the hot sauce world: there's more than one kind of tolerance for spicy food. Most people only know about the one kind of tolerance. There's a goes-in tolerance, and a goes-out tolerance. The goes-out tolerance takes longer to develop but it will come.

If this guy has 11k bottles of hot sauce, I'd bet my house that his goes-out tolerance (and his shiat) is pretty solid.

My wife has a very low tolerance for hot sauces. Last time we were at Fisherman's Wharf in S.F., she wouldn't even go into the Pepper Place. Just standing by the door was irritating.

Now garlic is a different story. We hit The Stinking Rose and she fell in love again.

Evil Mackerel: Lebanese Garlic Sauce

Crazy easy, if you have a good food processor. Garlic, oil, salt and lemon juice.  Mine has a dribble tube, so I can just add oil and lemon juice alternately and it drips it into the garlic. Keeps for months in the fridge.

it's so good that at some point, the heat becomes negligible.
I sweat that at our local Mediterranean joint, they are adding something...  liquid heat? and laughing at us.
I will still order it every time.

The view from my local butcher shop.  It's all hot sauces:

Idk. I love spicy food. It only hurt my butthole once and I'm not sure if the burning was the spicy pho or my wild IBS induced diareah.

Idk. I just don't understand it. Never really felt the ring of fire.

I'm just jealous I suppose.

In seriousness though, I've also never had this problem. Neither from crazy hot sauces or the few times I've just eaten raw chilis out of curiosity.

So today I learned that a nearby Indian place will happily escalate their vindaloo to "hey, this dumb white boy asked us to..." levels if you order it extra spicy. It was awesome, but I'm pretty sure they just dumped a tbsp of ghost chili powder into my order.

Is this the food equivalent of street cred, but for white people? Look all those joke about white people not seasoning stuff and loving bland mayo, was just jokes.  You guys don't have to show POC, that you're just as gangsta by punishing your own arsehole.

I feel like a bit of a weirdo in the Indian or Thai restaurants. They always ask spice level and I tell them 'like your grandma makes' and so far its disappointing. Only because I've had an Indian grandmas food and it made me sweat. Like good. I loved it
So far nobody professional comes close. One thai homecook did me a solid with green curry once. It was 3 spoons and deep breaths then more because its so good you  can't stop.

I always imagined novelty hot sauce being like whiskey. There's some mega factory that makes it and then the bottles go to different places all over the US where they slap on different labels so it can be sold to tourists and hipsters.

Yeah that's my experience at most places. Only found a couple that really hook me up.

I'll stick with tobasco habanero or el yucateco green.

CSB: I got jerk chicken at the taste of Chicago one year and had "spicy sauce" poured on top. Got one of them scotch bonnet seeds stuck between my teeth. It was... exquisite.

Probably not as exquisite as taking a leak right after you mince a few scotch bonnets up...

That's the best stuff, the stuff that makes you sweat but doesn't just immediately scorch the shiat out of your mouth. Haven't found a lot of that around here, despite my proximity to New Orleans.

Incidentally, does capsaicin burn? I ask because this guy's collection is impressive, but if his house ever catches fire, will the fumes just absolutely murderize the neighborhood carrying the heat, or just go up in the smoke?

Oh yea, any broken or exploded bottles will practically fumigate the place once everything starts to boil.
