    I HAVE A THEORY. I feel like alchohol would work if you got hammered before you ate the wings. Because when you get drunk you start to stop like feelings aka spices. So in theory if you took like 5 shots you wouldn't exactly feel the spices.

    I drink sweet tea while I have spicy candy in my mouth. I know it's wierd but it's incredibly refreshing. Probably due to the large amount of sugar and small amount of citrus. I'm also kinda addicted to iced tea so that may have to do with it.......

    Alexa Moore La pratica quotidiana mostra che l'innalzamento del livello di coscienza civica e una fase qualitativamente nuova nell'attuazione tempestiva del super compito. Il compito dell'organizzazione, in particolare l'innalzamento del livello di coscienza civica, garantisce la rilevanza del sistema di partecipazione di massa.Conclusioni banali ma inconfutabili, cosi come alcune caratteristiche della politica interna, sono presentate in una luce estremamente positiva. Come solo una parte del quadro generale, chiari segni della vittoria dell'istituzionalizzazione illuminano caratteristiche estremamente interessanti dell'intero quadro, ma le conclusioni concrete sono, ovviamente, mescolate a dati non univoci al punto da essere completamente irriconoscibili, il che aumenta il loro status di inutilita.🤩 したがって、新しい組織モデルは、割り当てられたタスクに関連して参加者がとるポジションの緊急の必要性を明らかにします。平凡だが反駁できない結論、および制度化の勝利の明確な兆候は、同様に彼ら自身の装置に任せることができます。

    Fun fact why the serve wings at bars . Beer gets rid of the burn and heat from the spicy , so people usually have to get more one drink depending on how hot and how much

  • caltch

    I actually think you build a tolerance to spicy stuff. I eat wings that are high up there in the scolville units. Some stuff that used to seem very spicy to me seem mild now.

  • Liveactionme

    Wow one of those transitions made me think my tablet was literally rolling of my bed

  • Benjamin

    I can say bread does nothing I was dared to eat a dragon tongue pepper and I had a sweet drink helped for a bit but I tried bread nope didn't work I had some milk it was ok but the sweet drink worked best

    Bread as a dampener only works if you wrap the spicy food inside the bread. I'm Indian and have wrapped bread around a lot of spicy dishes that help calm it down.

  • Smartkid_YT

    Wouldnt a frosted lemonade work? It combines both a vanilla shake with lemonade adding both the milk, acidity of the lemon, and sugar because it’s part ice cream.

  • Ambiotic Synapse

    Why not just make a sugar saturated lemon juice, then mix it with diet coke (I know what's the point of diet coke with a ton of sugar)?

    While watching this I was eating Flamin Hot Cheetos and I had the idea of “Hey, I have milk chocolate in my house. It has sugar, and it has milk.” So I tried it and it did help! Milk chocolate can be used as a way to numb low grade hot food. And after going in for a another bite of Cheetos it nulled the pain for a bit.
