Every year, my 2 sons compete to grow the hottest peppers. I don't know if you follow these things, but pepper varieties have been getting insanely hot these last few years.

Last year, my wife made some hot sauce from the peppers and the fumes from the batch blistered her skin. The jars could only be opened outdoors, any room with open sauce would become uninhabitable.

My wife dried some of this year's ungodly hot peppers. This morning, my wife put a several dozen dried peppers into a bowl to grind them to flakes. Knowing how dangerous this would be, she wrapped the stick blender into the bowl with a towel, sealing it.

Not good enough. Even though I was upstairs in the office, within a minute I had to abandon the house. It was below freezing, but we stayed out on the deck with our poor dogs, the doors to the house wide open.

Brutal.

The Aztecs would torture prisoners by tying them above smoldering peppers.

Yes, I really am that awesome.

I like hot food, but I never saw the point in growing things so hot you couldn't eat them, much less so hot you couldn't work with them.

Habaneros have a nice flavor, but hotter than that...leave me out. And even habaneros can't be too strong or else I'll be in serious pain the next day.

Yes, it does rather mystify me, and I like hot food.

I sometimes wonder if it is all just a bit "look at me".

One of the guys who works for me was hospitalized by cutting a pepper he grew last summer and it slightly squirting on his bare arm.

He threw the thing out of his house in a panic and has a patch where grass will not grow now.

I think it's some sort of bragging thing, where being able to withstand hotter stuff is supposed to be impressive. It has the opposite effect in my mind. I mark anyone who brags about being able to torture themselves the most as a fool.

Pretty much the same here, I do not find rubbing caustic soda in the eye or drinking harpic clever. By the same token I do not consider trying to give yourself chemical burns by any other means clever.

What are they growing? This year I grew some Scotch Bonnets and Habaneros, and they were pretty toasty. Made great jelly.

Next year I have plans to do a full container garden of Naga's, Carolina Reapers, Habaneros, Scotch Bonnets, Bhut jolokia, and some ghost varieties. I am going to smoke some and ferment some, and dry the rest.

I may die.

Yeah, put me in the camp where heat is an axis to support flavor, and not as some kind of mouth-flaying Hellraiser experience.

I love hearing this in a hobby about people who show off their game shelves.

Not sure there is much of a similarity between "look at how much I have" and "look how much pain I can cause myself", but even accepting there is.

I do not show off my games shelf.

This. I think maybe once or twice a year a conversation will arise in my group about who has the most games, but its just something we talk about as a matter of fact, not as a bragging point. If quantity actually matters, we wouldn't be selling off the games that don't get played anymore.

Eat it? Are you insane?

When I said weaponized foods, I wasn't kidding. We use the flakes as a tear-gas-like area denial weapon. The sauce is for water pistols--a blinding weapon. Also, we have simple 40-pound recurve bows which do not have man-stopping power, but an arrow dipped in sauce will put an enemy to rout.

Why would anybody eat it?


(My family calls us anti-social. Of course we're anti-social. Have you met society?)

Even as a joke this is dangerously close to RSPing the thread.

I think I agree with you.

ONCE them 'peppers' were 'done', THEN their 'heart' was "ripped out & consumed" along with those, finally! heart

Sorry. Online satire is hard. Them peppers is hot, is what I'm sayin'.

Of course I live in a situation in which I need no weapons. Our bows are for, no kidding, downhill skishooting (hitting targets while skiing). The peppers are indeed for fools to eat. Certainly I'd never eat them, but then again I consider ketchup pretty spicy.

Yes I suppose it is when there are rules that are easily broken by jut saying the wrong reply as a joke.

That my point, the fact that many of the ways to reply to your post would cross over into RSP (or can only be made in a moderation light environment like RSP).

I get what you are saying, but I cannot repeat it without breaking the rules, that is what I am saying.

I used to love that band, but nothing was the same after Flea Spice left the group.

Well, he did eat all the peppers the last time, got the runs really fierce-like, and has banned himself from returning (unless someone eats a pepper in his honor).
