I'm torn between wanting to call them pussies and cringing at how horribly painful that must be, with the capsaicin swashing around with the stomach acid and... bleah. God.
Okay, I ordered it from that link. I seriously hope my brother, who has never brought home more than 180 dollars in a week in his life and who believes that all us nerds do at work is search for discount electronics, never sees this thread. What an eye gouge into the face of karma.

Then you graduate to After Death.

Wow. I am feeling like a total hot sauce badass because I can take quite a lot of After Death before I have to stop.

That said, a friend of mine once drank After Death. He then proceeded to hallucinate.

After Death is hardcore. Anything with extract is hardcore.

It was only today, after I had to dump a bunch of After Death into my chili because the Sudden Death I'd dumped in there previously wasn't quite enough, and the Death Rain habanero powder I'd topped it off with wasn't doing the trick, that I realized maybe I've been hitting the sauce a little hard lately.

You do get desensitized to these things after a while.

I might be able to take a single drop of it in an entire bowl of chili. I think I'll have this bottle of hot sauce twenty years from now. That makes it the best value anything I've ever bought, probably.

Now, let me ask you this: does this ruin your sensitivity to other foods? Or is it more like when Ben Grimm, the Thing, became all rocky & gained the ability to punch straight through people's faces and yet suffered no loss in sensitivity in his rock-like fingers?

Wait, which did you get? Death? Or After Death?

I meant to say that I hope my brother "never" sees this thread. I just did an edit. I'm not an jerk. I am a human being. People can play BBS The Thing with me.

I bought this sauce:
Original Death Sauce
Our original hot sauce! You have to have this one in your kitchen. So many great uses, excellent on all shellfish, wings, of course, and awesome Bloody Marys!
Shellfish, check.
Wings, check.
Awesome Bloody Marys, well... I'll go ahead and plan on those, even though I think normally it's like drinking cold blood. Check!

Oh, okay, good. Death Sauce is very edible, and delicious.

After Death would likely kill you instantly if you hadn't taken the time to warm up to it.

I think I found an after-effect, then. INSTANT DEATH.

I don't want to end up like the guy from Scanners. Also reviewed tonight on the new Jolt Country Dot Com!

Pinner,

I had some "Frank's Original Hot Sauce" today for lunch. I was able to use a lot of it. How hot is that sauce, on the scale of hotness?

Very low.

EDIT: To elaborate, Frank's Original Red Hot comes in at about 450 on the Scoville scale. That's several times less than even Tabasco, which comes in at about 3000.

I will give you $200 if you never mention the fact that I posted about a 450 hot sauce again.

Save the $200. My new nickname for you is now "450".

Hey 450, how's that Vectrex game coming, 450?

The Vectrex game has been "pushed." Come on. I am one of 15 or 16 people to ever compile and run code on the thing past 1985. And it got pushed because you kept encouraging me to make a text game worth paying for.

... Did this at all distract you from calling me "450"?

He's just being a hotsauce snob.
Buffalo wing sauce is made solely of RedHot and butter.

"Hot" wings have more Redhot and less butter.
as they go milder on the pizza place menu, they just add more butter.

So, by definition, even if you always order "hot" wings it is still just diluted RedHot.

No, I was answering his question. He asked me how hot Frank's is, relative to other sauces, and I answered him.

Are you disputing my answer?

Douche?

No, 2,000,000. I am not questioning your google skills, 2,000,000.

However, those scoville ratings do require more than a little faith to believe, 2,000,000.

Do you or do you not agree that Frank's is relatively low on the ol' heat scale?
