I prefer my peppers ...

Geek Hillbilly Cooking (285 comments)

I make 10 different styles of chili.2 main ones are Tex.Mex(no Beans) and Hillbilly(Lots of Beans-we like to fart).Start off with mild,hot Thermonuclear,Supernova and Gamma Ray Burst The last one has every variety of pepper known including plenty of the Ghost pepper.It is much hotter than the so called Hell FIre chili I heard about watching the travel channel.The last time I made the last one (Both Tex-Mex and Hillbilly style) the EKU ROTC was challenged to see if anyone could handle a small bowl of the Gamma Ray Burst chili.No one could. I like my chili as hot as possible.If there ever comes a hotter pepper than the ghost pepper,then I will make the ultimate hot chili-The Big Bang guaranteed to rip your stomach into quarks.

Is DIY Brainhacking Safe?

Geek Hillbilly Re:Predictions? (183 comments)

The real dangers,besides frying your brain,will be the ultimate of addictions.Called Wireheading,with electrodes implanted into the pleasure center of the brain,you could possibly "Pleasure "yourself until you die of neglect.I first heard of this via the Known Space series of books by Larry Niven.(Louis Wu was a wirehead in The Ringworld Engineers) Take your time,think it through(Something else from those books)
