I was doing my own thing quietly and YOU are the one who created this post trying to make a big deal out of it. Keep flaming the fire. That must be what you want.

I dare you to drink pure capsaicin.

I never understood the urge to eat hot sauce that is so hot it's literally painful and burns your mouth.



To me it smacks of masochism.

As one of those weird people I can honestly say that's what it is.



Pain releases endorphins, it's a rush.



There's also the 'how much can you stand' factor that adds fun to it, there's some perverse desire to look tough in front of all your friends by making your mouth burn forever.

I want a glass of water just thinking about how hot that stuff probably is. It reminds me of an episode of Man Vs. Food when he was challenged to eat bowls of chili made with habarnero sauce. The guy's face was beet red and sweat was just pouring down his face. I was uncomfortable just watching him suffer.

I absolutely adore fiery hot stuff, but I really don't see the point of this. It's not even a condiment/sauce - it's a pepper extract. 7 million Scoville units??? what are you gonna get out of this?



Even for extremophiles, this is ridiculous.

The source is something for kids - better try the real deal: Blair's 16mio A.M. reserve *lol*.



http://www.chilliworld.com/SP6.asp?p_id=63



Anyway the hottest one's I've tried are: Blair's Jersey Death (850 000 Sco) (meanwhile I'm finishing my second bottle) and Mad Dogs 357 (357 000 Sco). Hottest chile would be a Bhut Jolokia, but it wasn't as hot as I expected.

Exactly. Its all macho bull****. Chillies and heat are meant to enhance the flavour of the food and not mask it. There is no point to this stuff except to show off to your friends. Something to sit on a shelf and point out. Big whoop.

I love spicy food, but get gastritis regularly and have a spastic colon. For me, that's proof there is no god.

Me too! I think it's something to do with acid reflux.

I've used ground chillies to combat insects invading my garden with some success. I think some insects do not like chillies at alll.

Birds eat chillies, too, it seems:



To find out what happens in the wild the scientists observed the eating habits of the local animals living around a group of wild-growing chillies in Arizona. They found that desert mice and rats avoided spicy chillies, but birds fed almost exclusively on the plants.



The researchers also noted that when birds ate the chillies, many seeds germinated, but there was no germination after mice had eaten the chilli seeds.



This is thought to be because seeds pass through a birds digestive systems very quickly and come out unharmed, whereas in mice, rats and other mammals, the seeds dont make it out in one piece as they are broken down by the acidic juices during digestion.



The researchers suggest that chilli plants have evolved to produce capsaicin as a repellent for animals, which will ensure their future survival, whilst still allowing birds to eat their seeds.

What's hot or not simply depends on the species, and just because we perceive it as hot doesn't mean other species have to. That said, the stuff the OP posted is ridiculous

I adore hot and spicy food, but I like to be able to actually taste it and enjoy it. I have no desire to try this stuff.



I'd love to watch you try it though!

I had habanero extract 750. I loved it. I had contests with friends to see if they could take the heat. I won!

Hamsters eat chillies, the food I used to buy for my pet one had whole dried chillies in it.

[QUOTE=sleepydvdr]It is called The Source. By my calculation, it is about 70 times hotter than a habanero pepper. It has a scoville of 7.1 million. The hottest pepper in the world (called Naga-Bih Jolokia) only has a scoville of 1 million.



What's the hottest hot sauce have you tried? The hottest I tried is probably around 150,000 scoville. Believe me, that is hot. I can't imagine the horrible pain one drop of The Source would cause



OMG I would Luv to try this.....I love hot and spicy.....I have won a hot sauce drinking contest...Yummmmy!!!.........I like to drink hot sauce right out of the bottle or little cups ect....I love Habanero Jelly beans too....The Hotter the Better

Ever felt a bird's tongue? It's dry. They don't taste the same as we do. I give my bird hot peppers all the time, he loves them!



As for me, I hate anything hot/that spicy. Ruins the food and gives me heartburn!
