What the fuck is wrong with you people?
Bet that'd be good over some wings with a pitcher of draft to wash it down...
No it wouldn't. Tobasco is 50,000 scoville. Habanero is 300,000. The chemical root elements used in pepper spray are 1,000,000. If that stuff merely touches your skin, you will blister... you will quiver and quake just as if you had peed on an electric fence. That stuff is meant to be used as a few grains for an entire vat of whatever... certainly not straight up. This stuff would be more damaging than ingesting Drano.
I've seen it elsewhere for $150. Might have been a different years batch though with more bottles.
Unc, according to that site, McIlhenny Tabasco is 2500.
Down second from the bottom
And they let people like this breed????
Didn't mean to imply the brand name as it is fairly diluted. I meant pure undiluted tobasco.
Why $200 for the bottle? Its becuase over 200 pounds of peppers were used in obtaining the helliest micro bits.
Why in God's name would you people do this to yourselves?
Same question to you... 'cept with haggis as the subject.
Haggis is food. Healthy, edible food. This is crystalized pain in a bottle.
Christ, you have to sign a waiver just to buy it.
Al-Qaida could dump a bottle of that stuff into a municipal water supply and paralyze everything for days ... except Texas. They wouldn't even notice.
Capsicum may just be a chemical compund (methyl vanillyl nonenamide) but then so is VX
I heard about this stuff this morning on the radio. People are sick in the head. They were saying something about it being $200 a bottle because they only made 1000 bottles or something like that. I don't remember exactly.
Chom. This is it.
I would put it forth under the lump umbrella that covers all dangerous/painful/ecstatic forms of behavior. Why skydive? Why bunji? Why do hard drugs? To some, it releases a massive rush of endorphines that are pleasureable when certain brain chemistries akin to depression exist. Altering ones state of being becomes a temporary lift out of a rutted cycle of life that it agony to some. Some might even relate it to religious zeal in the same way that Filipino flagellants whip thier backsides into bloody pulps in order to step closer to God. To some it may just be a 'badge of honor' to be able to suck it up and take the pain... like a tattoo.
Some just like collecting the bottles because its quasi rare artwork and sometimes rather funny.
i love texas.
"Capsicum a lipophilic chemical that can produce a strong burning sensation in the mouth
(and, if not properly digested, anus) of the unaccustomed eater"
So Texans wouldn't get tushy burn?
That's the one!
eek! i can barely handle medium thai food
you know what? recently i had a intestinal virus and the doc told me to lay off the milk and the spicy food until it passed. so i was sitting at dinner ordering my sub and found my self thinking "i'll just get the veggie sub with jalapenos. they aren't spicy"....i think i've warped my taste buds.
I should get one of those bottles for my dad for Father's Day.
