Yikes!

Indian woman blazes through chili-eating feat -
News, People - The Independent
: "The 'ghost chili,' the world's spiciest chili, seems to suit her palate.

A 28-year-old Indian woman smeared its seeds on her eyes before gobbling up 51 fire-hot chilies in two minutes for an entry into the Guinness World Records, organisers said today."

There isn't enough Xantac in the world to soothe my tripes after a stunt like that.
