Hot Stuff

A new novelty chili pepper is setting all kinds of records.  And eat it at your own risk. When Welsh fruit grower Mike Smith unveiled his creation for a national grower’s show, he had no idea he would accidentally end up with the world’s hottest pepper. Called ‘Dragon’s Breath’, the record-breaking pepper scores a whopping 2.48 million units on the Scoville scale of hotness.  Intended to be a tiny thing of beauty, the Dragon’s Breath pepper turned out to be a sensory beast that can’t really be consumed unless you’re willing to put your life at risk. Just to put into perspective how hot this thing is, the Scotch bonnet, a chili usually eaten as a challenge, scores between 100,000 and 350,000 Scovilles, military-grade pepper spray registers at 2 million units,  and the previous world’s hottest pepper was rated at a maximum 2.2 million units. Dragon’s Breath blows them all away with an impressive rating of 2.48 million Scovilles.  Oh, and be warned.  Consuming it could send you into anaphylactic shock.  And kill you.  On the other hand, the hope is that because oil from the chili can numb the skin, it could be used as an alternative to anesthetic in third world countries, or on people who are allergic to conventional anesthetic.

 

Doggie Treats

Here are seven things that you should NEVER feed to your dog, according to one expert:
• Macadamia nuts – can cause vomiting and hypothermia in dogs.
• Lemons and limes –  are too acidic for animals and can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
• Onions and garlic – contain an ingredient that destroys an animal’s red blood cells. This can result in anemia.
• Grapes and raisins – can cause kidney failure in dogs.
• Cheese and milk – Just like humans, adult dogs and cats can be lactose intolerant. (My dog is already gassy enough!)
• Avocados – can cause heart problems and even death for birds, rabbits, and horses.  Although they can cause stomach upset in dogs, the big concern it that it may swallow the large pit, which isn’t digestible. (Plus it is so easy for them to cut themselves when slicing an avocado!)
• Chocolate – especially dark—contains theobromine, a stimulant found in cocoa beans that may cause heart problems, vomiting, and seizures in dogs.

• You can duplicate the warmth of a down-filled bedroll by climbing into a plastic garbage bag with several Canada geese.
• You can compress the diameter of your rolled up sleeping bag by running over it with car.
• A potato baked in the coals for 1 hour makes an excellent meal. A potato baked in the coals for 3 hours makes an excellent hockey puck.
• The guitar of the noisy teenager at the next campsite makes excellent kindling.
• You’ll never be lost if you remember that moss always grows on north side of your compass.
• ‘Sleeping under the stars’ has nothing to do with a TV competition.
• A lot of hostility can be released by using newspaper photos of politicians for toilet paper.
• In an emergency, a drawstring from a hoodie can be used to strangle a snoring tent-mate.

Laws of Work

• If you can’t get your work done in the first 24 hours, work nights.
• A pat on the back is only a few centimeters from a kick in the butt.
• After any salary raise, you will have less money at the end of the month than you did before.
• The more crap you put up with, the more crap you are going to get.
• When the bosses talk about improving productivity, they are never talking about themselves.
• There will always be beer cans rolling on the floor of your car when the boss asks for a ride home from the office.
• Everything can be filed under “miscellaneous.”
• To error is human, to forgive is not our policy.
• If you are good, you will be assigned all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it.
•You are always doing something marginal when the boss drops by your desk.
• People who go to conferences are the ones who shouldn’t.
• If it wasn’t for the last minute, nothing would get done.
• Eat one live toad the first thing in the morning and nothing worse will happen to you the rest of the day.
