Watch What Happens When 1,000 People Eat One of the Hottest Chilies on the Planet

My mouth remembers it well.

Several years ago, I was at Mall of America in the Twin Cities when I came across a store that sold peppers, salsa, and all sorts of spicy stuff.  Being a California native, I was accustomed to spicy food, and so when I was offered a sample of a particularly nasty pepper, I thought ‘how bad can it be?’

I should have backed out the moment the guy at the store warned me that no matter how much water, or milk, or whatever, I drank, it would be a full 15 minutes before my mouth would stop burning.

He was right, and it was the longest 15 minutes of my life.

To this day, I can’t remember what that chili was, but I do know I’m smart enough to NOT attempt to eat a ghost pepper.

In case you don’t know, the ghost pepper – or bhut jolokia as its’ known in its’ native India, was certified by the Guinness Book of World Records in 2007 as the world’s hottest.  How hot you ask?  How about more than 400 times hotter than Tabasco sauce!

Keep that in mind as you watch 1,000 people in Copenhagen, Denmark eat 1,000 ghost peppers at a recent event.  You don’t need to understand Danish to feel their pain:
