    How "hot-n-spicy" do YOU like it?

    The idea for this poll was sparked over lunch, when me and a friend went to go eat buffalo wings. I always order them blazing hot - the spiciest I can get. My friend says that almost no one enjoys extremely spicy food, and my taste for it is a rare thing. So I was curious. How many people enjoy extremely spicy food?

    Poll may seem silly, but I am curious.

    EDIT: Poll added, and food doesn't have to be simply buffalo wings. It can be anything that is served with the option of "spicy".

    I like it hot enough to make my eyes water but not blazing that will make me feel ill. So sort of in between.

    I'll do the blazin' as well, but I am of Cajun/Spanish decent and have spent my entire life eating ridiculously hot food, so I'm used to it.

    Im with ya, the spicer the better. Most foods labeled spicy are not spicy imo. Its a rare treat to find anyone serving what I consider spicy.

    Like you I know people that cannot handle anything even slightly warm much less mouth numbing hot. Perhaps they view pain as exclusivly bad while we can find enjoyment in certain pains.

    Some of my favorite foods are on the hot side, not because of the pain, just the overwhelming array of flavors coming from the spices. I love ethnic foods mainly because they give me a different taste experience, but especially because the delicacies could start a brush fire, Thai, Indian food, anything with Curry or Habenero. And now I'm getting hungry.

    I like to go up in flames once in a while. Sushi with the green stuff and the ginger root can light you up, if the hot stuff is fresh and potent. I love Mexican, Indian and Thai too.

    OTOH I have to be a little more careful how much of that I do these days, my digestive tract is now middle-aged and will only suffer so much abuse.

    Re: How "hot-n-spicy" do YOU like it?

    I like it hot.

    Back in college a friend and I used to try out the different clubs, restaurants, bars in town trying to find the hottest wings we could find. Finally we found a new place and I ordered the "hottest" wings they had.

    The owner of the restaurant came out and told us that the "hottest" he had wasn't even on the menu. He was holding a bottled that was labeled "INSANITY". He let me read the back of it and it said "great as a food additive, for removing polish from furniture or oil stains from drive-ways" (I-kid-you-not!).

    I was only able to eat three of them and was then ready to kill myself.

    I love hot but I don't try to find the hottest around any longer. I've been beat.

    I'm a savory kind of guy, never really liked the whole obsession with hot stuff.

    It can go to retarded extremes for no reason.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    I know what you mean. One time, I was putting some crushed red pepper on my pizza, when the cap fell off and a ton of it came on the pizza. I brushed off the excess that didn't stick to the pizza and ate it.

    I regretted it the day after, if you get what I'm saying.

    Thats the problem, eating super spicy food doesn't burn going in, but also coming out hehe.

    I like my food extremely spicy.

    The problem is that my mouth does not realize that my colon is more susceptible to the effects of spicy food, my warning system is broken, and I realize that what i ate was a tad too spicy the following morning.
