Random Musings (and associated non sequiturs) v. 3.0

Why does Chrome suddenly look different?


#3220

Update. I think there was an article about the changes coming on Ars a couple weeks ago.


#3221

It’s not often that I find something that is too spicy for me. I found some Korean stir fry instant noodles the last time I was in J-town and decided to try them. I couldn’t finish the package I prepared. I still have indigestion from the 1/3 of a package that I ate yesterday. They were so spicy that my lips and mouth felt like they were burning. Now I have to decide what to do with the other four packages.

#3223

They would burn the fire. Believe me.


#3224

Sneak it into your enemies’ lunches?


#3225

I don’t think I hate anyone that much…


#3226

If you know any Cajuns, they’d probably gobble it up.


#3227

I was just thinking it sounds like a delicious challenge. My Dad always said if there isn’t sweat running down the back of your neck then it’s probably not hot enough. :grin:


#3228

I regularly eat things that make me sweat from the spice. This was a whole different category.

Returning them to the store for a refund is not an option?


#3231

Nah. I’m not taking a trip all the way back into San Francisco for a $5 refund. I doubt they’d take it back anyways. I think I’ll just cut the next batch with a lot of rice.

For those of you who think I’m a wimp, I found it on Amazon.
Edit: If any of you do try it, I want to know what you think!


#3232

I like spicy things, but I’ll pass on that one, thanks :slight_smile:


#3233

Holy crap that’s a lot of salt!

EDIT - I have a couple of friends who like to try extra spicy things, but they’re $10 for a 5 pack at Amazon… not worth it, when other ramen varieties are 5 for a dollar (or less) at the grocery store.


#3234

Yeah, that is pricey. In J-town it was $5.50 for the pack.


#3235

When I lived in Dallas I worked with a good ol’ boy from Louisiana who was Cajun. I couldn’t understand a damn thing he said. Pretty sure he was the inspiration for “Jeremiah Was A Bullfrog”.


#3236

There’s a guy on YouTube who calls himself the LA Beast and does spice challenges. He did one with a pack of these that he then added a few drops of Plutonium 9 (capsaicin extract weighing in at 9 million SHUs) to. He made it about halfway through. Sweating profusely would be an understatement. He was also drooling uncontrollably. He ended up running to the bathroom and puking.


#3237

Use them for a contest at the school and who ever can finish a whole one gets a 2% grade increase!


#3238

I’m not willing to get sued because I killed a student. :stuck_out_tongue:
