    After I share my own Reaper experience, Tank-Top asks whether I was the voice he heard in the bathroom, hollering, “Why is this happening to me?” which is the point at which I resolve not to use the restroom at this venue for any reason.
    Yeah...there was a time when I would try the hottest “dare” item on any menu. This forty-something stomach now flinches from paper-thin jalapeño slices on a burger.

    "Why is this happening to me?" That is the one line in that article that just kills me.

    Also, note the 20 second lapse in his audio diary between words.

    So, I posted this on my FB... a guy I used to work with when I was at St. John's who now lives in DC responds back with a "Hey, I know that guy" in relation to the guy that won the eating contest.

    My biggest takeaway from the article was how they all go backstage and force themselves to make it come back up. That, apparently, is preferable to the natural alternative.
    My posts indicate that I don't seem to follow college basketball all that closely.

    This story might match the last one.

    I eat Reapers and Ghosts every day. I grow them in my garden, but also order them online (Bohica Pepper Hut!). I dry them out in a dehydrator (my wife has to be out of the house that day), then powderize them in a spice mill to make a powder I affectionately call, "Powdered Hell".

    I then put that powder on / in a ton of things -- including my morning coffee.

    At this point I dare not stop eating these extreme things or I would never again be able to get back here. And the flavors of these chilies is actually amazing!

    Planet made of drugs? Pretty sure these two were angling to go to the Phish show.

    Okay, wait.

    The article sort of implies that they had in fact sold "some" tickets to heaven (forget the reasoning for a moment). Foosters, do you realize that this opens an entire new business plan for all of us?

    We would not want to "lie" or be deceitful. But, if people are willing to pay $99 for a ticket to heaven, what would they pay for a "certificate of future wealth" - if we left "wealth" totally undefined, it wouldn't be a "lie" in a legal sense. Perhaps we'd be performing a public service, where some people would have a placebo effect that motivates them to get out and get going on their wealth, and then the rest might learn a lesson - don't waste money on stupid things, and you will be wealthier.

    I think we have something here.

    I want to add that I am not sure why that couple was looking for a planet made of drugs, because it would seem like they were doing just fine accessing the drugs on this planet, and it didn't sound to me like the type utilized for Phish shows. More the type used after being made in bathtubs with ferocious chemicals which end up causing "after" pictures we see on the net, and loss of teeth, and 'wealth'.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.
