I thought Serrano Peppers were hot...

I start sweating just thinking about the burrito I ate with the single mystery pepper that some kids from my apartments sold me. Turned out it was a Serrano pepper ranked at 25,000 on the Scoville scale. 5x's the level of a Jalapeno.

A woman in India just set the new world record for eating the hottest peppers. The chili peppers known as "ghost chili" that she consumed rank 1,000,000 on the Scoville! And she ate 51 in 2 minutes. To top it off, her victory dance consisted of rubbing them in her eyes.
