    I accidentally bought the container and didn't notice the "Zesty Jalapeno" part of it until I'd made a sandwich and bit into it.

    I usually enjoy a bit of spice, but these folks aren't messing around.



    I love them like this....
    Of course having a few litres of water close by to act as a fire extinguisher helps!

    A few years ago, my wife and I took a holiday to Thailand (nothing seedy I promise).
    The flight was long and on landing we decided to go for sometihng to eat before turning in for a long sleep. As I was tired I decided to keep it simple and order sometihng recognisable from the menu and went for barbecued chicken with rice, my wife decided to go for a Thai green curry.
    I teased her about how she would regret it.

    The food arrived and mine looked pretty ordinary with what I assumed was red barbecue sauce in a small pot to the side. I asked my wife if her food was 'hot' enough for her, chuckled and tucked in to my own food.

    With hindsight, the look on the waiters face as I poured the sauce over the chicken and rice should have been a warning, him asking me if I would need more water when there was clearly a full pitcher in front of me should have been my second wake up call. Finally should I have noticed him quickly getting the attention of his colleagues to point out the stupid British tourist about to do something very funny, I may have thought twice before scooping a large mouthful of chicken and rice covered with what I can only describe as liquid fire sauce into my face.

    I have never felt pain like it, spitting it back all over the table didn't help, pouring the whole pitcher of water into my mouth and all down my front didn't help. If someone with a gun was nearby I would have happily asked to be shot.
    It turned out to be the chef's specialty incredibly hot chilli dipping sauce. It was a Legend in the part of Chang Mai we stayed in and only the brave tried it.
    Only the riddiculously stupid poor it all over their food and think they will eat it and live.

    The other diners were crying with laughter, the waiters were crying with laughter, my loving wife practically wet herself she laughed so hard and I just cried and cried.

    If anyone would like more tales of why I am an idiot and and an embarassment to my species, my wife plans to write a book.

    I loved that story Arbiec. Nothing like real life experiences. I think the hottest thing I've ever eaten was Shrimp Creole once in New Orleans.I haven't eaten shrimp since. Put me right off. And so yes, I feel your pain. I cried like a baby. And the hell of it was that no one warned me how hellishly hot it actually was going to be.

    Well, I replaced the water flush/fill valve in the toilet again.
    Another $7 well spent (Walmart only has the one brand).

    I think Hubby and I have been married for 3 of these valves now.

    soon you'll be able to just walk in and lean on the counter and
    the barkeep/plumbing-department-worker will slide a flush/fill valve
    down the counter like a shot of whiskey.

    Hmm, a new way of measuring a relationship - flush valves. I've been married to the same woman for about 10 flush valves.

    My wife has a man that comes round to fit a new flush valve when the old ones break.
    Should I be worried?

    Fluidmaster is the best. Often the valve will get grit stuck in it and leak, the cap can be removed and valve can be flushed out. I've fixed I don't know how many this way - it takes 1 minute to do - saving people the cost of a new one. Most plumbers will replace it anyway to make the extra buck. I don't. It's just a small part of being a great guy.

    That's what I got. (minus the flap part.)

    At $7 a pop every few years, I'll put up with installing a new one. The hard water here makes it all icky.
