Er, you can't. 

 

I don't know when, but the admins changed the coding for the site so that you can't edit any post over a day old. And only mods can delete posts anyway.

Scoville Scale explained with DBZ
 
K5AAXW6.gif

CAPSAICIN is the substance in chile peppers that gives them their spiciness.

The SCOVILLE SCALE measures spiciness, using SCOVILLE HEAT UNITS (SHU).

I'll explain how hot peppers are in terms of Dragon Ball Z power levels (PWR).

LEVEL 0

hn4QO2V.png

These things have almost no kick worth mentioning. They are at the bottoms of their respective scales.

LEVEL 100

lNwwKMt.png

Small kick. Might be a little too spicy for toddlers. But even the average person can handle these peppers without a problem. They go on salads, subs, and stuffed inside green olives. The vinegar brine they're stored in is often more overpowering than the tiny amount of spice they have.

LEVEL 1,000
CdyiEDp.png

These may look like jalapeños, but Anaheim chiles are weaker decedents of the famous New Mexican green chiles from Hatch, NM. They're meaty and flavorful, but offer very low spice. Great for burritos and stews.

LEVEL 5,000

sRLfj0C.png

This is about hot a lot of people (particularly in the US) can go before they start burning their mouths and assholes. People who can handle heat OVER 9,000 are starting to venture into chile lover territory.

LEVEL 20,000

tGXZzsQ.png

These small, thin, crisp peppers are really fun to eat raw. Chili heads might not be able to feel much heat from these at all — but if you're new to the game, beware.

LEVEL 50,000
PvxdJAc.png

10 times hotter than any jalapeño you've ever had in your life.

Cayenne is used to make Louisiana Hot Sauce and almost all other mainstream red hot sauces, as well the crushed red pepper you often find at pizza restaurants.

BUT BE WARNED — Do not falsely assume you can handle one of these fresh just because you use hot sauce or crushed pepper. Peppers are hottest when they are fresh and raw. Aging and diluting peppers in vinegar (as with hot sauce) or drying them out (as with crushed pepper) may greatly reduce their spiciness. Also, those crushed red pepper packets are often blended with weaker peppers including red bell pepper in order to further reduce the heat level.

LEVEL 100,000

fWfHvMa.png

Don't be deceived by their size. I've seen people eat these tiny little berry-like chiles raw and then recoil in agony, calling them the "hottest thing" they have ever eaten.

However, many chili heads can pop these like candy. This is what I call "medium heat". Dried crushed chile pequin flakes are perfect to dump into a boiling pot of water to make a spicy base for ramen.

LEVEL 300,000

XHS34CD.png

These suckers have a LOT of range in terms of heat.
A mild habanero might only give a slight burn you can easily walk away from, a potent specimen can FUCK YOUR SHIT IN and have you chugging milk over the sink.

Even if you're a chile head, you should be careful around these. Keep away from ALL children.

If you eat these fresh, they have a sweet fruity flavor. If you mix a couple of these into a salsa, they should pose little threat.

Watch some people try it out!

Congratulations! You just ate a fresh, raw Red Savina! Are you a chilehead?

☒ No:
Oh fuck, son. I hope you have a full gallon of milk nearby, a tub of ice cream, and a clean bathroom, because you're going to be spending the next 30 minutes to an hour exploding from both ends of your body. Just make sure not to touch your eyes or you'll be extra fucked.

☑ Yes:
These are the beginning of the "Ultra Hots" category . Even being a chile head may not be enough to save you.

LEVEL 1,000,000

r4eBZwZ.png

OVER 1 MILLION SCOVILLE HEAT UNITS!

Until a couple years ago, these varieties were both in the The Guinness Book of World Records for being the world's hottest chilis.

If you are not a chili head, do not let anyone trick you into even looking at this motherfucking demon seed. If you are a chili head, you'll obviously want to try this, but you're gonna be hurting.
Ghost pepper salsa is delicious and is the perfect heat for a salsa.

This chile will most likely destroy you no matter who you are, with very rare exception. It'll make people around you cry when your hot breath hits their eyes. Your own breath will feel like a hot blow drier going into your throat and lungs. Your saliva will feel like a thousand stabbing needles made of lava. You may be convinced someone is raising the thermostat, even if you're by yourself. You will enter a forced state of painful meditation where you are basically trying to keep your sanity under the extreme pain. You will probably feel like you're going to die. You may end up calling an ambulance. God speed, dumbass. You can buy a bag of Trinidad Moruga Scorpions here and see if I'm lying.

16 Million SHU! This is as hot as capsaicin based spiciness can get, because this is the pure form of the chemical. Pure capsaicin crystals extracted from chiles is now illegal to sell in some places. It is very dangerous. Unless you are a trained professional, keep away from this shit. Even then, you probably want to keep away from this shit. Though that doesn't stop some people...

DON'T EVER DO THIS. THIS CAN KILL YOU.

16 Billion Motherfucking SHU. This shit is beyond dangerous. Hell, there's not even Dragon Ball equivalent for it in the same order of magnitude. If you combined the power levels of every hero and villain in the Dragon Ball Universe, that still wouldn't be enough power to explain how spicy this stuff is.

It's a naturally occurring capsaicin analog that is 1,000 times more potent than pure capsaicin.

This shit is so spicy that even microscopic amounts of it will instantly and completely stop your ability to feel anything ever again in the area it contacts. In extreme cases, doctors can inject very dilute concentrations into damaged nerve tissue to stop pain (and feeling) forever in the injection site.

Extra tidbits
KwRdLG8.jpg
• STOPPING A BURN: Never use water to stop a chile burn. You may get away with using water to help cool a jalapeño burn because they're so weak, but do NOT make that rookie mistake when dealing with ultra hots. Instead, drink or spit cold milk, icecream, yogurt, sour cream, or even cheese. Dairy products contain a substance called "casein", which has a detergent effect on the chile's capsaicin. Folk remedies include letting a spoon full of granulated sugar dissolve in your mouth (feel free to spit it out).

• WORLD'S HOTTEST PEPPER: Chile breeders are constantly making new strains and hybrids, some of which may be in the running for the #1 hottest chile in the world. However, precise testing via High-Performance Liquid Chromatography doesn't come cheap, and the less expensive tests are less reliable. Currently there are rumors that a variation of the Carolina Reaper called HP56 may be over 3 Million SHU, but that has not yet been confirmed (as of Mar 2015). Since Nov 2013, the hottest pepper in the world confirmed by The Guinness Books of World Records is the Carolina Reaper which averages at 1.6M SHU, with an individual pepper confirmed at 2.2M SHU. http://amzn.to/1jgJDI7

• CAPSAICIN TOLERANCE: As with many substances, it is possible to build up a tolerance against capsaicin. Constantly pushing your limits will allow you to eat more spicy food without pain. But beware, tolerance can drop quickly if not maintained, or from other causes like seasonal allergies that make your mouth raw.

• ENDORPHIN RUSH: Very spicy peppers can cause your body to release a flood of "feel good" neurotransmitters. This will make you feel lightheaded, buzzed, and really good. In other words, you get a 'natural' high. This is also the answer to the question people often ask "why would you burn yourself like that?!"

• CHIPOTLE is not a breed of pepper, but rather a type of preparation (smoke-dried) of jalapeño. Ancho is dried poblano, Padilla is dried chilaca, Guajillo Is dried mirasol, and so on.

• SPELLING VARIATIONS: Americans prefer to spell it "chili" (not to be confused with the Tex-Mex dish). Spanish speakers often prefer "chile" (not to be confused with the country). The rest of the world often spells it "chilli".

• CHILEHEADS: Much like the craft beer scene, the chile geek scene has started to grow noticeably in recent years. Check out http://www.reddit.com/r/spicy and join the fun!

• BULLSHIT! SRIRACHA IS HOTTER THAN TABASCO!: No, it's not. (Generally speaking). Sriracha has a much higher viscosity than Tabasco. This has a twofold effect. First, it means you're using way more sriracha without realizing it, since it has a 'third dimension'. Secondly, it sticks around on your tongue longer. Both of these add to illusion that Sriracha is hotter. If you really need proof, carefully measure out exactly equal amounts of each, dissolve in equal amounts of water and do a taste comparison. However, keep in mind that there are many different brands and formulas of each and SHU may vary.

DISCLAIMER
LUYMHTW.jpg
There is lots of disagreement among Dragonball fans on the topic of correct power levels — for many reasons, ranging from translation errors to inconsistency within canon itself.

But for the sake of building a coherent, interesting and roughly equivalent comparison between DBZ and the scoville scale, I had to choose certain interpretations of power levels that some fans may throw a hissy bitch-fit over. Save it.

PWR info was found here: http://dragonball.wi...of_power_levels
SHU info was found here: http://en.wikipedia..../Scoville_scale

Links to Amazon are referrals. I greatly appreciate you using and sharing them. They allow me to waste many hours of productivity thinking up and putting together fun posts like this. (I love you all!)
