So because it looks like a sea and people have referred to it as a sea, then we throw away the bit where it actually isn't the sea?

Nope, because "seafood" is defined that way by Webster, and because people away from the coasts often refer to it that way, I'm going with that, quite valid, definition. Instead of your personal one.

You seem to have missed that the very first definition of seafood says "fish and shellfish that live in the ocean and are used for food"

THAT is the first definition on the Webster dictionary, not my personal one.

I'm personally on the challenge level when it comes to spicy foods. I've done several wing challenges and haven't failed one yet (that's not to say that I didn't get my butt whooped by a couple).

For those of you that understand spices, I start to draw the line around 1,000,000 SHU (scoville), but in order to preserve taste I prefer about half of that.





I had the ghost pepper wings at BWW. Like you, I like spicey challenges. I won but I cheated a little. I got the wings in a wrap with lettuce and other fixings so it helped mask the hottness. Also, it took me 40 mins to eat because I had to go slow.

And you know what's funny about that chart? The Triple Atomic wings are by far sweeter than the Atomic wings and taste way better in my opinion.

There's just more of a punch in the face AFTER your done with the wing.

Well is food from the Chesapeake Bay seafood? It's got varying degrees of salinity, from fresh at Havre de Grace and salty at the Virginia bay bridge, to halfway in between at St. Michaels.

What about the fish and crustaceans that migrate between salt and fresh waters every year?

I'm from MS. I worked at Zaxby's in college. I beat the Atomic wings rather easily. I 8 yr old son can hang with me. He beat the Atomic wings. Or is it Nucluar? I forgot which ones are the hottest. I'm going to have to find a Quaker Steak. I live in New Orleans now and there is supposed to build some in Baton Rouge.
