Hot Hot Hot Sauce

Do  you like your food spicy?  Can someone say, "would you like some food with that hot sauce?"  I've been adding hot sauce to my food to give it a little kick.  I think it's funny when even the mildest sauce gets people to sweat.

Did you know there is a hot scale?  It's called the Scoville Scale.  The range goes from 0 to 16,000,000.  A jalapeƱo pepper is rated a 3,500 on the scale and most police pepper spray is in the neighborhood of 1,500,000 to 2,000,000.  Whoa!  Can you imagine what 16 million is?  That's pure capsaicin.  I don't even want to try it.  Maybe I'll watch someone else...

Do you like spicy food?  Would you be willing to try the really hot stuff to make you sweat off 10 pounds merely inhaling the fumes?
