No, not the band :P

The Indian army is planning to use the worlds hottest pepper, the bhut jolokia, in a non-lethal weapon. They're going to replace the payload in small granades with it. This pepper scores a whopping 1.000.000 on the scoville scale :shock:

Won't work in Texas. |ce'll just break open the grenades and tip it in his chilli.

Plus won't the local populous be pretty immune to hot peppers?

I pretty used to it but I wouldn't want to get any in my eyes

Odd though, when I looked up the Scoville scale, the pepper spray used by LEA is even higher then those peppers. Wouldn't it make more sense to put that stuff in those grnenades?

I pretty much drink a hot saunce called Submission which had a 750,000 Scoville rating and I had to sign a waiver, rofl...oh well. nobody else in my family tree (the entire tree) could or would even try it. I love hot saunce and we're not talking Tobasco or Texas Pete's....that stuff I drink for V8, hah!

Mom and I were at restaurant and they had "extra hot" wings...now my mom is not into super ultra hot shit like I am, but I got them and she saw how I was just driving through them and she said "can I have one?", so I gave her one and I'll be damned, she liked them and wanted more because....."extra hot" wasn't shit...pity...I go in for "draw the machete and SMG" type haha...if you can't sign a waiver, you're a pussy, plain and simple.
