Proof I Am a Complete Sadistic Bastard
@johnmierau How hot? Give it to me on the scoville scale.— John Scalzi (@scalzi) January 28, 2012
@johnmierau 5K scovilles? I use that for EYE WASH.— John Scalzi (@scalzi) January 29, 2012
@johnmierau SOLD. Write it up featuring the Bolivian Rainbow and I'll retweet.— John Scalzi (@scalzi) January 29, 2012
I retweeted, he made his goal, and he ate a Bolivian Rainbow pepper while reading The Eye of Argon. If you want to go straight to the pepper eating, it starts at about 9:30. At about 10:24 he bites into it. Watch his face. Just watch it.
Eventually he starts rubbing his eyes with the hand he’s holding the pepper in. I’m not sure about the wisdom of that.
Anyway, yeah: The Bolivian Rainbow causing this poor man’s tongue to melt? My doing. What can I say, I’m a jerk. On the other hand, it’s the spiciest reading of The Eye of Argon, ever.
