it's not a very good fact, but it's better than all this other guff.
the Naga Jolokia pepper is the hottest chilli in the world, with a chilli rating of over 1 million Scovilles. Eating one seed from one of these chillies causes intense burning pain for over 30 minutes. (For comparison, pepper spray used by bad police has a rating of 5,000,000 scoviles, whereas jalapenos measure at about 2-5000)
On 9 April 2009 Anandita Dutta Tamuly, a 26 year old Indian woman, ate 51 Naga Jolokia peppers in two minutes. The attempt took place in Jorhat, India and is expected to be accepted into the Guinness World Records. Celebrity chef and restaurateur Gordon Ramsay was present.
