I was not the smartest kid in grade school. I was smart enough to get by with decent grades but dumb enough to mouth off a lot and get into trouble. If anyone was going to get caught doing something they shouldn’t be doing it was me. That said, I was never this dumb.
You just witnessed a kid die. Okay, he didn’t really die but he is going to wish he had. He just ingested a Ghost Pepper, one of the hottest peppers out there. Not THE hottest but enough to wreck your tail pipe for weeks. Looking at this Scoville Scale chart the Ghost comes in 5th. I have no desire to eat any of these peppers.
It is stunts like this, combined with my own history of stupidity, that make me worry about what my son’s future holds. I just hope he takes after his mother.
