Late to the party but just wanted to say that this post is incredible.

I was there, and about 18 hours into a bender.  It was surreal.  

Just typing that made me ill.

What year was it? Is he wearing a Cole beasley or Roy Williams jersey?

I’m guessing Drew Bledsoe.

Never understood the spicy thing.

Why does something have to be so fucking hot that your entire mouth goes numb for you to enjoy it.

Will never get it.

I like a little spice but raw jalapeños or fucking ghost peppers.

Get that shit out of here.

Are you trying to prove something?

Raw jalapeños aren’t that hot, and have great flavor.

Ghost peppers, Carolina Reapers, et al are apropos to your point.

If it makes your mouth go numb then how can the heat bother you?

Also, I'd add, that to a certain extent, the sting of capsaicin is pleasurable to some people, and adds an enjoyable element to the culinary experience.  Some people are trying to prove some point of toughness, no doubt, but for a lot of people, a little burn is enjoyable.

That is bullshit.

Raw jalapenos with the ribs and seeds are hot as fuck.

Some may be hotter than others but most of the raw ones I have encountered are mouth numbing hot.

Some jalapeños are hotter than others. I’ve had some on a banh mi sandwich (they swear they are not a thai chile or other hot chile) that will knock your socks off.

Don't get me wrong I like some spice and a little heat is fine but that stuff that is blazing is stupid.

Everyone has different taste buds I know.....my Mom used to eat raw jalapenos all of the time and my Dad did not want anything hot.

Guess I got more of his taste buds than her's but I did get her hair which I am grateful for because I never have to worry about baldness.

Used to love super spicy stuff when I was young, but my asshole can't handle it the next day now. Hard pass.

The hottest jalapenos I've had were less of the mouth burning variety, and more of the "face gets redder than a whiskey drunk" and you start sweating hot, but not anywhere near the mouth heat of ghost peppers.

Try an habanero sometime.

Some raw jalapeños can be hotter than others, sure. But using them and ghost peppers as your examples are two extreme ends of the spectrum. 2,500 scoville units versus a million.

You may think you like some spice, but that says you don’t.

Yes, they certainly don't hold up well against Taylor Swift, Ariana Grande, Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, and Imagine Dragons.  I'm just hoping to go deaf so I don't have to listen to any more KPOP.

Watching a few minutes of the dog show this holiday weekend, I've come to the realization that I am a bit of a dog racist - I'm not crazy about most dogs that have curly hair.

They're still better than most cats, I guess, but I don't really care for most of the curly-haired dogs that I have known. Perhaps people who are shitty owners are more drawn to those breeds (looking at you, Bichon Frise...), or maybe their personalities somehow reflect a purpose of their breeding that annoys me, but I don't believe I've ever met a kickass dog with curly hair. I think their ceiling is pretty much "doesn't suck too bad."

You want unpopular? I don’t care for most dogs in general. And I like cats.

I hate croutons in my salad. If they come in a packet on the side, I either throw them away immediately, or even eat them individually, separate from the salad. But once I put the dressing or the vinaigrette on my salad, the last thing i want is a soggy crouton with one of my bites.

To eat straight from the bag? Yes. On lettuce? No.

Both. If you can make them soggy with dressing then you're putting way too much dressing on your salad. (Incidentally, Cardini's Caesar dressing is also great.)

Mmmmmm...nom nom nom nom. So good.

I literally just take the packet of dressing given to me when I buy the salad, squeeze it on, and shake it up. If that amount of salad dressing makes it a soggy mess for one item, but everything else is perfectly fine, maybe it just doesn’t belong lol.

Christmas Vacation is overrated and has not aged well.  It’s not on the same level as the original Vacation, which is an absolute classic.

I bought some jap poppers at Central Market for Thanksgiving. I know you won't believe it, but the HEB actually was open.

That said, their were two packages. One was "sufficiently" hot for me. Meaning they had a little burn, what I feel is edging toward not hot enough.

The others were, dead serious, no hotter than green peppers. They were still tasty but my sister who is extreme anti-heat even enjoyed them.

I've had some fresh cut ones I've thrown in Tacos at a restaurant that nearly made me back off.

Point is, we agree, japs and a lot of peppers can vary pretty widely on their scoville rating in the same plant. However, anyone thinking any of them are on the extreme end really aren't heat people. NTTIAWWT

Ghost peppers and that ilk are frankly silly to me and too hot for useful consumption, but to each their own. Those fall into the stupid hot range for this cowboy.

I love spicy food and have a pretty high tolerance. I have had many enjoyable experiences with the use of habaneros and even ghost pepper (used sparingly and strategically, I assume). But I also have had dishes that are comically hot, completely unenjoyable, and I don't really understand the draw. I'm not one who takes some dumbass pride in my tolerance for heat, and I am happy to admit if something has me beat. I am, however, willing to try something said to be extraordinarily hot, but only a taste. I'm not going to go all in unless I know I can handle it.  I'm pretty sure I've had one wing of BWW hottest and it didn't kill me, I probably could have finished 6 and been okay, but it was not enjoyable. I liked the third down the list in spiciness, if I recall correctly. It's been years since I've gone to BWW.

I've never actually done it but I confess I've considered snacking on just croutons and dressing. 
This is the only way I consume them. Don't like them on my salad. They are pretty much like chips to me

Rick Steves is NOT gay.  

I have no idea whether he is or not, but this is a reasonable take. His overriding character trait is dorkiness, which can be found anywhere along the gay-straight continuum.

I've had dinner with his family, so I'm going with "not". He is, however, 420 friendly.

Not only do I like croutons on a salad, I also crush up one or two packs of crackers and put those on a salad as well.
