    I like that 100,000–350,000 range. I have a problem when you get hotter because being spicy just to be spicy is pointless when you sacrifice the flavor.

    It really depends. Also, Scoville units are really awkward. I have had both jalapenos and habeneros and habeneros are definitely not 12 or more times as spicy as jalapenos. There's kind of a diminishing returns effect with spicy food.

    An accident is something that you did not mean to do at all. A mistake is something that you regret doing.

    For some reason, the title of this topic sure steered my mind in a different direction...

    Habanero is about as spicy as I can take it, but I hate habanero, the flavor is horrible.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Habaneros truly have a wonderful flavor, too. Anything beyond that seems like a waste to me, although I could see using something small and incendiary to spice up a really large quantity of food more easily (chili, curry, vindaloo, etc.).

    If I eat anything in the first category, I begin to sweat, and my gastritis begins to act up, I can safely say I am all sorts of allergic to spice in general.

    Man, I got sweaty from just reading that list, I am going to eat some ice.
