(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

So Kirstin and I were talking about spicy food, and how we both like it to be really really spicy. Then of course the topic came around to who could stand the spicier food. So we decided that we need to have a little contest with this- but we couldn't figure out a way to judge it.

The first thought that came to my mind was that first person to break a sweat loses. But that doesn't really test the limits of how much spice you can take- it just tells you who sweats first... So what to do? Keep on trying to one-up each other, until someone backs down? But what if you have to stop because your stomach is about to explode from eating 101 hot wings?

I guess we'll just have to start at a really high level of spicyness and then work up from there.
