    I got that treatment in Thailand. Got all cocky and said extra spicy. Guy took it as a personal challenge. It pierced my soul and I soaked my clothes sweating but damnit I finished it and it was delicious.

    I can’t do the hyper hot stuff anymore. I got old and my stomach gets very jaded.

      I used to be very spicy tolerant. I’d ask for “Indian hot” in Indian restaurants, I’d tell places I ate pizza or kebabs at that their spicy version wasn’t spicy enough (the kebab place used jalapenos, the pizza place used supermarket chilli flakes) and they’d find the hottest chilli peppers to challenge me with, and it was wonderful

      But for allergy reasons I no longer eat bread, and for weight management reasons I quit eating fibre entirely over a year ago so I suspect I have lost my tolerance
