What's worse than one ghost chili pepper? How about 1,000 ghost chili peppers?
During a recent event organized by Chili Klaus in Copenhagen, 1,000 people ate the bhut jolokia, one of the hottest chili peppers in the world. In what's known as the ghost pepper challenge, the daring volunteers each devoured one of the extremely hot chilies and attempted to keep the pepper down.
As Digg notes: "Don't worry, milk was provided. Which also led to a lot of people vomiting up spicy milk."
The pain-inducing pepper averages around 1,000,000 heat units on the Scoville scale, which measures the amount of capsaicin -- the ingredient responsible for the spicy heat -- in a chili pepper.
You probably don't want to try this, or the Carolina Reaper, at home.
