    KABOOM - world's hottest chilli


    With a name like Carolina Reaper, you know they're going to hurt. (is that a relative of PP's place mat?)
    (I like the way the chillies are giving 'the bird')

    One chilli lover in the US got more than he bargained for when he developed excruciating 'thunderclap headaches'
    after eating the world's hottest chilli pepper.

    Shortly after the 34-year-old man ate a Carolina Reaper chilli — which, by some estimates, is 500 times
    hotter than Tabasco sauce — at a chilli-eating competition, he was struck by crushingly painful headaches.


    The cause?

    Spasming blood vessels in his brain, likely due to the super hot pepper, according to a paper published
    in BMJ Case Reports today.

    Thunderclap what now?

    Thunderclap headaches are relatively rare, and likely only strike those with a genetic predisposition,
    Royal Melbourne Hospital neurologist Mark Parsons said.

    But if you get one, you'll know about it.

    "They're really intense, like the worst headache ever, and maximal severity right at the onset,"
    Professor Parsons said.
    "It can make you collapse or pass out with the intensity. It's like being hit in the back of the
    head with a cricket bat.

    "You'd usually need injectable painkillers at the hospital to relieve it.

    Your standard paracetamol or anti-inflammatory won't help."

    These epic headaches can be triggered by a range of conditions, such as bleeding around the brain
    called a subarachnoid haemorrhage.
