Kei from the Merch team challenged me to eat a Carolina Reaper. I agreed. He roped in a few other folks from our floor to take the challenge with me.

We all got some ice cream sandwiches for our troubles.  :-P

He ordered some dried peppers from Amazon (of course) and they were re-hydrated beforehand. Honestly, I was surprised that I wasn’t more destroyed by it, I guess I’m used to the heat. It was fricking hot for sure… but I think I’ve had hotter in the past before.

Of course, to honor the event, I wore my capsaicin shirt.
