Try Carolina Reaper hot sauce.  Rated at 2,200,000 Scoville Units.  Which means, it takes that many gallons of water to dilute one drop so it can't be tasted.  That would clear up those sinus's, Lol.  When Steve & I worked in Shot Blast, we experimented with some of the hottest known peppers back then.  One foreman put a little sause on the tip of a chip and about died, Haha. He guzzled 5 bottles of water and it just kept spreading like wildfire.  

had some hot sauce called "Da Bomb" it  was 750,000 scoville, so pretty hot..  but it was just heat, there wasn't much flavor.. 

One afternoon sitting out with my brother inlaws, we had some salsa that we mixed a small amount of the sauce into.  It was really hot..  my younger brother inlaw listening to us go "holy crap!" when we started to munch on it, he says "what a bunch of pu$$ies"  puts a good chunck of the hot sauce on a tortia chip  and pops it in his mouth..  DOH!!    he danced around on the deck for a quite awhile before things calmed down.  "Hey dude, want some more"  --- "no, and go ---- yerself!"...  (miss that guy,, he passed in 2015..  he was a hoot)

Got post hole digger on my Gehl skid steer,had to buy two ends for the hydraulic hoses to adapt over to Gehls flat ends. 120.00 for two ends. I almost cried,I was thinking 25.00. Then went out and drilled 10 holes,hit rocks on all but one. I'm repairing wind and bull damage to the feedlot fence. It ain't gonna look good,but it'll be cheap. Tomorrow hook up the haystack mover to the tractor and grease that and the loader. Too many irons,so little time as we get closer to snowmagetten.

Haha, Da Bomb is what I had. There were 3 of them.  Ground Zero was the least hot, then Beyond Insanity, and I bought the "Final Answer." Which was rated at 1,500,000 Scoville units. It was a 2 oz bottle and lasted me like two years. I remember one day I used it and put the lid back on not realizing the lid had a drop on it. I went to the restroom and Oh, My Dog....Talk about a burn that just went on and on Lol, Yeah, you don't want to touch the private area for sure. It got so no one would come to the shot Blast to try our hot sauces at all.  I had a lot of stuff in the fridge.  Steve and I tried every one of them and put a drop in everything we ate there. One was so hot, Dan asked how is it? And you could say nothing as it took the voice away. The trick was Pepsi or Coke as that cut the heat the quickest.  Glad to hear you had some also Ray.  Ok, looked it up,  Ground Zero was 234,000 Scoville units, and Beyond Insanity was 135,000 Scoville units. So you must have had the Final Answer also at 1,500,000 Scoville units.

HA!  yea,, Maybe, I know they (Da Bomb) had a few different "blends"..   that stuff was just death in a bottle man..  I found Sugar cuts the heat pretty good too.  it absorbs the oils,  swish it around in your mouth then by all means,, spit that crap out!!  

One hot sauce that I still to this day make sure I have some on hand is Scorned Woman.  That stuff is great, it's hot, but not crazy, and it actually has flavor. 

My son has gotten in to making his own,  he has a mango habanero recipe that's really good.

Three years ago we stopped in Galena, Ill, on our way back from Wisconsin.  Grant's Home and a real nice and historic strip downtown.  They had this shop that sells nothing but hot sauce.  Lots of free samples with warnings on many (Don't taste unless your wearing a diaper, This sauce cures death, Your hemmroids won't know what hit 'em, and so on.  Real funny stuff).   The heat level started at a mild level like you'd find in a grocery store and went-up to a nuclear reactor meltdown level.  We bought a bottle for my son and his wife called The Rectum Reaper.  On the bottle lid was a little doll of The Grim Reaper.   All around the bottle were skulls.   Anyway, he put it out with the chips at a Labor Day Party with no warnings and with other sauces around it and once you dipped a chip in it, that was all it took.  You wouldn't go back to it a second time.  It was seriously hot.  And "Yes" on sugar.  It does seem to give you a "stay of execution."  We've laughed about that sauce many times and my son still has the bottle, but in all sincerity, some of these sauces are nothing to laugh at........Yet, they are fun to talk about if you're one of the survivors.

I was looking at the albums my father-in-law had and found a mono copy of The Beach Boys - Pets Sounds. The album is in great shape. The jacket is not to bad. Fuk Yeah. I'm gonna finish going through the rest.

I had fun with the stuff.  The Final Answer was the hottest I had,  Almost bought a 10 oz bottle of this one,  "The Source," and it was the hottest they had way back then. It was rated at 7.1 Million Scoville Units  and sold for $89.95 back then. I figured the Bomb was plenty hot enough. A guy asked me to put a full drop of the Bomb in his bowl of chili, and his bowl was half full.  I refused to and told him to fill it full. He wouldn't and insisted he wanted to try the Final Answer.  So I got a tooth pick and put just the tip of it barely on the dipping stick. He thought, No way in heck he could taste it with barely a dot on the wood. I told him to stir it up well through all the chilli and he did. Haha, he took a spoonful and once he swallowed he about cried and couldn't take another bite.  He couldn't believe it was that hot.  Today they have sauces that go way beyond the heat levels. I have no idea what they would use them for.  What got me started was a trip to Tijuana   Mexico. A Kentucky Chicken had a bottle of hot sauce out on the table and I tried it out. That stuff was insane, So I grabbed the bottle and brought it back to my Uncles house in California. I put a drop in everything I ate to get used to it, Even on my eggs.  I had Pain Is Good, A$$ Kicking sauces,  Hot sauce from Hell, Satan's Blood, All kinds of them from Kansas City,  We tried and ate every one up. Yeah, I'm a glutton for punishment. Lol

I kind of agree,, it stuff is that hot, it renders anything it touches inedible.. what be the point?  You know the heat is right when it's hot as you can stand and yet, you go back for more of what ever it's in...

We had the grandkids today, They had a blast with Sundance playing hide and seek. That gave him plenty of exercise.  I put the rest of the grass seed down  and played the Riviera some. I'm getting used to it now.

Walked in the wind & rain. Got cold & wet. 

Now warm & dry.

8000 steps done so far. Another 5000 will do for today.

Thats great. I used to try 10,000 steps every day. When I worked I got way over 20,000 every day.   A few years back, I was pretty sick and Deb went to Duncan Donut,  her car failed and the battery was dead. It needed a new one, so she had to walk home in the freezing rain and cold. She was soaked through when she got home.  Thats not fun!

On New Years Eve, Cherry & me were celebrating at a pub with live bands. We had pre-ordered a taxi. So 20 minutes before its due we go outside and wait. Its cold, but were ok. We waited more than an hour and no car showed up. Couldn't get through to the co. on her phone. We prepared for the long walk home (about 5 miles), but we weren't dressed for it. We were dressed for indoor partying. We kept positive and set off.  By the time we reached the town centre we found another taxi luckily.

He was a fisherman. As it happens it was televised. The 'wise man' said this to Billy Connelly when river fishing in a remote part of the highlands. Billy was freezing his @ss off dressed stylishly but inappropriately. The angler was in kitted out in warm waterproof gear.

I returned to work today. Yeah. We have about a 7 to 10 week electrical project we just started. They also think where I work we would all be coming back to work in December. Oh well at least next Monday is a paid holiday.

Swam 54 lengths.  Booked more swims for next week.

Wrote letter of objection to local council planning dept over proposal to build 3 huge blocks of flats on very narrow small piece of land behind houses on my estate.

Baked bread - came out very well this time.   Did my accounts for September.  

Now trying to get my cheapo WIN10 tablet to work. It doesn't want to - needs a full battery charge.  I don't leave it on charge overnight as it gets hot.  Bah. Guitar time!

Worked another 12 hour day and then the wife and I got flu shots.  Exciting stuff!

I've been drooling over a 335 on Facebook Marketplace so decided to dig mine out of storage and play it for a bit.  Not nearly as handsome or fancy but it'll do.
