Sounds cool and I like big burgers but thats just poor design, you're not going to be able to enjoyfully eat that with your hands.

If you need gloves to pick it up, that doesn't even need to tell you what it could do to your insides. I really don't see the fascination in eating food that hurts as you consume it.

I'm a great fan of spicy food and would be very interested to try it but it's just too big - it looks like a US-style portion size. It's quite rare to find meals that are actually spicy, as even most Indian restaurants' hottest meals aren't really that hot. If they made it in a sensible size I'm sure I'd give it a go, though I'd probably regret it later. :laugh:

Spicy doesn't burn your hands... That's just a sales gimmick.

I think that's more for dramatic effect. Nobody wants food that makes you ill or feel pain but spicy food is really nice now and again.

Spicy food is actually really good for your insides, capsacin is (ironically) really good for ulcers, and some studies even suggest it can prevent or help get rid of cancer. Fascinating stuff. And tasty!

the gloves are so that you don't touch your eyes/genitals after your meal as that will cause you agony, they aren't there as a gimmick.

Also regarding not understanding why people enjoy hot food... it is because your body releases endorphins when you eat hot food, you can get a great natural high from eating spicy food. It isn't just a macho thing to prove that you are brave.

I too have read this. Alas, I have no tolerance for the stuff and even struggle with a korma! :s

Let's hope they've got paramedics on standby for immediate customer resuscitation. That thing sounds lethal!

Someone tip off "Man vs Food" that guy will eat anything

But I agree, if you need gloves, what will it do to your mouth and insides....

I don't get the whole thing with hot food, after a certain point (in my case, a fairly low point) it just ruins any sort of flavor.

I enjoy hot to a point too, but if I can't finish it because of the heat it spoils it for me too

I know some people who eat the hottest they can find because it gives them some sort of crazy high, not high like drugs, but sends them hyper

I just like when my mouth and lips are burning, when I feel flushed, even my nose gets a bit runny, but it's delicious! I didn't realise it released endorphins, but it does make me feel happy so I believe it. I also hear it boosts metabolism in the short term, and the way it makes me feel warmer seems to support that. I eat spicy food every chance I get :D

I've had to walk out from a Thai restaurant looking like I just finished the London Marathon because I picked something very hot not knowing what it was

I spent more on coke than on the meal, and was almost embarrassed walking past everyone with such a red sweating face when I was finished

Was nice though :)

Yep, Thai is the best. I also like adding sriracha to pretty much everything :laugh:
One Thai place near my house does a spicy-food-eating contest every year. I always get to the final round but never win--on the final round you have to be first to finish it, and some big guy always inhales it in one bite and wins. However, it's still fun.

This burger is huge, though, no way I could eat all that.

But, if your stomach feels ill and you drink a lot of dairy real quick, it gets ugly. Really ugly.
Best to hold the milk in your mouth and let it do its work rather than chugging a lot of it. I've seen... things :x
