Sehr toller, sehr langer Artikel im New Yorker über die schärfsten Chilis der Welt und die Leute, die den Scoville-Rekorden hinterherjagen: FIRE-EATERS – The search for the hottest chili.: „This is a Trinidad Scorpion from Australia […] Taylor took a knife and whittled off a flake no larger than a clove. I put it in my mouth and chewed. The capsaicin hit loud and fast, a cymbal clang of heat. […] It took twenty minutes and a can of Dr Pepper to banish the sensation of having a sort of tinnitus of the mouth.“
