An unidentified student brought the peppers into Milton Union Middle School, West Milton, and apparently shared them among other students aged 11 to 14. Police and emergency responders were contacted on Friday after the students began to exhibit symptoms such as blotchy skin, hives, sweating, watering eyes and general discomfort, the Dayton Daily News reported. Five students had to be hospitalised. The students “took these peppers voluntarily”, according to a police investigation. “We all drank like 10 cartons of milk,” eighth grade student Cody Schmidt told the newspaper, adding that the pepper was “really hot”.[/QUOTE]
Why would you eat one of those peppers voluntarily.
Why wouldn't you?
Best way I ever wasted 2 hours of work was eating a Carolina reaper my coworker brought in with only water to drink.

I thought it tasted pretty good, and asked for another few drops.
they're also kids, they're probably not exactly aware of how spicy these things are, chances are it was more curiosity or peer-pressure than thrill seeking

It's not like we have to fear any lasting damage from a bite of pepper.

It's better as a powdered or extracted ingredient because the chunks contain enough spice to cause severe irritation as it 'passes through'. Still nothing with lasting damage, but nothing you really want to go through unless you like adding 'gastrointestinal pain' to your list of extreme things to check off.

Spent a good half hour washing my eye out.

A couple came in asking for the hottest pepper we had. I made sure they knew what they were getting into before I told them which ones they were. Another time, it was a couple of kids. I can't remember what about them felt odd or cam across as such (no parents was one), but I went back and mentioned it to my boss, and he agreed with me. Sold them habaneros instead. Really didn't want to be responsible for them getting hurt.
[QUOTE=MaximLaHaxim;51001648]Why would you eat one of those peppers voluntarily.[/QUOTE] i have done and continue to do so believe it or not i enjoy it and take pride in resisting the heat i've got carolina reapers in stock for the november toxx

you think its interesting and cool to eat these super hot peppers but no one thinks past the symptoms of your mouth burning think of the pain and the fiery dump you'll have that's the real discomfort of doing stuff like this

[QUOTE=OneFourth;51003014]this quote is quintessentially middle school[/QUOTE] Even the kid's name reminds me of some 90s High School movie bad boy.

I absolutely adore spicy food and I've eaten enough that I have a pretty decent heat tolerance, but sometimes asking for the hottest thing on the menu generally isn't the best idea. I had a Trinidad Scorpion chili pizza at a restaurant a few months back. It must have been about short of 1 million scovilles, it wasn't massively difficult to eat given the heat gets to a point your mouth might as well be anaesthetised. But about half an hour later my stomach was doing fucking back flips and I had to walk my ass away from some sweet live Blues so I could groan myself into a coma at home. I won't even describe the afterburn, I don't usually pray on the toilet but I made an exception that day.
[QUOTE=Dark Descent;51001809]Shitting fire is now on the bucket list[/QUOTE] I hope it's the [I]last thing[/I] on said bucket list, otherwise you're in for a bad time.
[QUOTE=Dark Descent;51001809]Shitting fire is now on the bucket list[/QUOTE] i've eaten a bhut jolokia. the exit is worse than the entry imo
My dad has a thing for growing the hottest peppers he can find in his garden, and my dumbass sister brought one to school once. The kid who thought he was "tough" enough to eat one mysteriously disappeared for a week after that. I don't see why anyone would want anything past habeneros, at that point the extra heat in the mouth is pointless and it just makes shitting it out worse.
Just imagine if they some how got a hold of the Carolina Reaper and ate that instead.
If you so desperately want extreme spiciness, just get pure capsaicin. Or resiniferatoxin, which is about a thousand times more potent than capsaicin.
[QUOTE=MaximLaHaxim;51001648]Why would you eat one of those peppers voluntarily.[/QUOTE] Because it burns so bad it cures your depression for a while.
[QUOTE=Headhumpy;51003811]get resiniferatoxin[/QUOTE] pretty sure you can't considering how dangerous it is

Like it was nothing like other peppers I have eaten, where there is a certain flavor that hits you alongside the heat. For me it didn't even feel THAT hot cause all of my taste buds were either in pain or just completely numb. If you get an enjoyment from that I'd have to say its more due to masochism than actually enjoying pepper's flavor...

When I was 18 I would chow down on some crazy curries and my stomach would handle it like a champ nowadays I use like a tablespoon of sriracha and my gut is doing the fuckin tumble dryer I have no problem with spice at the point of consumption but at that digestion stage I regret everything I've ever done
