A kidney stone, surgically removed. :bugeye:

Rhody...
You know, most people get coal when they've been bad. You must have been terrible.

I got a new bike. (top one) :biggrin:

I have a few miles of trails on my property. They are steep and hilly and ridden with spring-holes. We have mud. Come on up.

I got an Acer Iconia A501 from my parents, they also helped pay for half of the lift I put in my Jeep. I asked for socks probably a month or more beforehand, and totally forgot that I'd asked, and was pleasantly surprised when I got a box full of new socks. Also got a SOG folding knife from my brother and nephews, and a few gift cards from other family members. Was a good a good Christmas indeed, even though there was no snow for the first time I can ever remember.

My wife told me that when she got her yearly bonus that she would buy me a laptop. Instead, the window-replacement guys showed up today and we are going to get replacements for the two drafty storm-windows that remain in this log house. The windows are cheaper, and will save us money in the long run. A new laptop wouldn't.

A late gift from my nephew. He must figure I've got him listed for something in my will, because at 180,000 Scoville units, I think he's trying to kill me!

Sorry Ivan,

Turbo and Astro especially wouldn't even begin to sweat with that stuff, the ghosts are around 1,000,000 scoville and my trinidad scorpions I am growing are around 1,400,000. That stuff is a nice way to break yourself into the hotter stuff. I know many from the far east who don't flinch after eating one of my peppers, but it has taken them a lifetime of building a tolerance to do it. Good luck and report back when you try it.

Rhody... :wink:

You have heard of capsasin abuse, right? :biggrin:

It really isn't good for you to eat stuff that hot. The tolerance of which you speak is the death of the receptors. I used to push the limit but now refrain from anything that gets painful.

I've tried that insanity sauce before and I hated it. Its like fire in a bottle. Gave me a stomach ache for two days and I only had a few drops on a burrito.

A website claims blair's ultra death sauce is 1,100,000. Some others said it is around 750,000-800,000. I had like 2 or so of that this year. I also had few other blair's mega and such.

Here's a review for insanity

and here's blair ultra:


It seems like insanity is about as hot as habanero. Habanero's quite enjoyable to have with dinner/lunch/breakfast :!!)
