No hiccups, but I can feel my hair grow and it makes my ears itch!!

What happens in private is even worse, but, I continue to torture myself in spite of everything!!

Last night we had sushi...Shogun's has "Heart Attacks".... Spicy tuna, cream cheese, tempura shrimp, tucked in a jalepeno half, then rolled in seaweed, tempura battered and deep fried! OH! So spicy and so good!!!!
Luv Luv Luv it!!!

Yes drinking a little milk helps when you're burning up, so does sugar or bread.

During my "younger" days- me and a buddy of mine would go to a couple of bars that had pickled jalapeno peppers in the huge jar up on the bar. He talk it up- get some old fart to put up 20 bucks- and I'd eat a full pepper in one bite. No water, beer, nothing for chaser. We'd usually get about 6 beers outta that $20.
Still love jalapeno peppers- but they don't love me!

I love 'em. By the time I was eight I was already eating red chilis raw. I love the taste but the heat really doesn't bother me. Mmmmmm.

With exposure, one simply becomes immune to the discomfort from hot spices, and you can get used to it very quickly. I can no longer find a hot pepper sauce that I can't eat straight with a spoon. Capsicum is considered to be extremely healthful, and acclimating yourself to hot pepper sauce is a very healthy addition to your diet. I don't use it on everything, only Mexican foods, and I still go through about 2 liters a year---luckily, it's incredibly cheap in the liter bottles.

I get free concessions at ball games, just by going to the tortilla counter and helping myself to a whole tub of jalapeños, and eating them straight.

If you get too much and can't stand it, don't drink a cold beverage, that will just make it worse. Eat some bread, that will absorb the capsicum. Same thing if you accidentally rub some on your fingers in your eye, just blot your eye with a piece of damp bread.

I love hot peppers but even a habanero is pushing it for me now..
20 years ago maybe, now a million scoville points is like sucking on a flame thrower.

[quote=Mooseketeer;1942374]Nope, I love spicy foods but not hot. Anything which masks the taste of the food is to me a pointless thing. quote]

I think habaneros have a wonderful fruity flavor in addition to their heat. I think chile pequin is nothing but heat. No good flavor to them at all. I love NM green chiles because they have more heat than an Anaheim. You can also get varying levels of heat. The flavor can't be beat.
