Tonight I'm having some friends over and we're doing Hot Ones, or rather the Hot Ones challenge. If you haven't heard of this little YouTube show, I really enjoy it.

Dude one of these days Sean and Chili Klaus are going to really get themselves in trouble. That last special gave me sympathy heartburn. Once you migrate from super-hot peppers to extracts you cross the line into chemical weapon territory pretty damn quick.

That reminds me, hey nowaypablo have you been pepper sprayed yet? Like, as part of training?

Oh boy have I, it's part of basic training.

They had it easy in this video. They made us recite all kinds of shit before they let us out. I watched the cockiest guy in my platoon lose his shit and try to fight the door guard to let him out. Obviously that just kept us inside longer.

Fuck everything about that.

I imagine that gets the 'ol lizard brain up and active.

How long after until you start to feel mostly human again? How often do you do this kind of drill? Until you're spraying it on your eggs in the morning?

I've only done it once and then volunteered to take a second "hard mode" run at the end of the training with some of my idiot friends, where we left our gas masks outside.

It simulates suffocation although you certainly won't die to temporary exposure like this, and every so often some kid walks in and discovers he's naturally immune to its effects! I definitely was not one of those kids.

You feel it burning your skin under your uniform the moment you walk in, and then as you take your first breath (which you would've held had they not forced you to speak at length) all your senses just go nuts as you compound the problem by trying to get air. The burning spreads to your insides, which sucked.

You can breathe immediately once you're out and after 10 minutes you're pretty much fine. The annoying thing is that the gas crystallizes on the inside of your gas mask so when you don't clean it and then put it on later you gas yourself again :D

It'll fuck up kids who leave their contacts in though. All in all 6/10, would not recommend save to see your friends' reactions.

Maan I could not do that kind of shit...that video was painful to watch.

    you certainly won't die to temporary exposure like this [...] 6/10

Your Yelp reviews must be amazing! ;)

Wow how fun

Interested in what pabs has to say. Some vets I know shared it only happened a couple of times for them max in training.

Anti-spambot measure.

New users can be 'promoted' by existing users to be allowed to post links. ATM, if you're a new user you need to complete one hubwheel with comments before you are allowed to post.


An old fart like us can 'promote' them.
