    I believe that children are our future, just not that one.

    It's all a mind play. That's what I find amazing.

    I don't wanna be a killjoy but I think those vids are fake. I could be wrong, but id say umans don't have capsaicin receptors in the esophagus or stomach/intestine, so there'd be no burn. Especially if swallowed whole. And especially not that fast - even if there was a burn. The kid lost his mind instantaneously. Anyways, just like birds don't have them in their mouth/tongue, so they can chow down on ghosties like they're strawberries. humans' anuses have such receptors so you can feel a burn to a degree when you expel them, but nowhere I between the mouth and anus - barring genetic variants.

    lol.

    Try it.

    It doesn't "burn" like it does in your mouth...but it still causes "discomfort".

    Doesn't burn, what a load. It burns all right. It burned my lips, my fingertips, all the way down my throat, burned when I crapped the next morning. It's more than just taste receptors that get fried by that stuff.

    My friend had those at a party a few weeks ago and a few guys ate them. They started to hiccup followed by throwing up. This went on for almost an hour. WTH would you want to go through that, am I missing something?

    There isn't enough ice cream in two dozen Baskin Robbins to cool that fire.

    Will do. Not so coincidentally, I've been a chili addict since I was a kid. Thanks to my dad. I eat ghosties and Hawaiian chilis daily with everything. I prepare them a few different ways. Maybe my stomach is used to them lol.
