I purchased a jar of habenero peppers, as I had eaten them fresh before, without too much discomfort. The peppers in the jar were significantly hotter than were the fresh peppers. They lit me up. I use them, but sparingly.

The most foolish thing I ever did while working with hot peppers was to think that washing my hands with soap and water would protect my nether regions when I had to answer natures call. I'll only go so far as to say that the pain lasts for about 15 to 20 minutes. Lesson learned. I wear disposable gloves now when working with really hot peppers.

In hindsight, I can laugh at my foolishness. But at the time... My wife snickered a little. Mostly, she was very understanding.

We happened to be walking around town and stopped to taste this and that at a couple of shops. At one, husband tasted ghost peppers. Now, we like hot food and have good tolerance for it, but I draw the line at habeneros so didn't even try these (I would like to be able to taste other foods within a day or so of eating something hot). He went on and on, and we stopped in the nearest thirst parlor. The owner said, "YOU tried the ghost chillies?" He then told everyone at the bar that it was an emergency and got husband a beer and slice of bread.

Every year, a few of my friends do the "man challenge", which consists of eating the hottest pepper you can find. Whoever can go the longest without reaching for their glass of water wins. I LOVE hot stuff. I add unbelievable amounts of pepper flakes and sriracha to just about everything, and I willingly eat any kind of pepper I can get my hands on. I like the heat, it's interesting. I'll probably try a ghost pepper and a naga viper if I come across them. I hope they're everything everyone says. It's like riding a roller coaster! Pure adrenaline rush! haha

I've done the same thing, apparently the stuff will transfer to toilet paper....

I don't cook with hot peppers anymore, I'll go out and eat spicy stuff.

I feel sorry for the person that chops up some ghosts or vipers, heck serrano or jap without hand protection touches their significant other in a sensative area!

I made a mistake having a few beers & shots one day before cutting up serrano peppers.Right after I cut them up without gloves I had to take a whizz really bad.I ran to the shower shortly after.I have habanero peppers whole sometimes,can't imagine having a ghost & wouldn't dare to try a moruga scorpion pepper whole

My late brother (Duck Koo Kom on 'Zaar) once posted "Penile Jalapenosis" to a usenet group. I tried to find it once with Google but couldn't.

I have never had a ghost chili and probably never will (maybe if I am in New York and go for that Man vs Food challenge, but probably not). I can eat Matouk's sauce in small amounts but Filipino siling labuyo chilis, which are about the same Scoville rating, are too hot for me. Maybe because the ones I tried were in a vinegar brine, vinegar seems to intensity chili heat.
