100,000 Scoville Units of Vindication! February 16, 2007

Posted by KG in Food.

Maybe scotch bonnets and delicious Thai peppers are painful, but to the spice haters out there who claim loving the burn is “unnatural” — and you know who you are! — I bring you evidence from the World of Science: for thousands of years, mankind has loved capsaicin.  So there.

Unrelated: I can’t decide if the AP writer who came up with the headline of this article deserves a prize or a whack in the head.  At the very least, he/she should have tried to work in a Weird Al shoutout.
