Why would someone invent a pepper that’s too hot to eat (or so it seems)?
I think that “ anaphylactic shock” might be used incorrectly here. Anaphylactic shock is strictly related to a severe allergic reaction. Anything, potentially, can cause it. However, hot spices (peppers and wasabi, for example) can cause some mucus membrane swelling, without allergies being involved. It’s a physiological reaction to the chemical. Given that the heat factor is so extreme with this pepper, I would imagine that the physiological response could also be extreme.
I looked it up, since I had never heard that name before. It turns out that “Kangol” is a brand name.
Judging by his stupid expression, I suspect he tripped her. At least his wife (?) shows concern.
I would have bought that Main Stwould have at least been in the top 5!
Except that sending the body to boarding school for that doesn’t make sense….unless that’s another lie.
I met my doppelgänger my freshman year in college. Our personalities are different — she’s more outgoing — but we looked a LOT alike. We lived in the same dorm, had the same haircut, and wore similar clothes. It was kind of freaky! Furthermore, her last name was the same as my mother’s maiden name. We checked our genealogy and we aren’t related. Not closely, anyway. We constantly had strangers coming up and started talking to us like they knew us, only to find out it was the other person they knew. It was pretty funny!
I really miss the scent of a real tree, but the cost and convenience just makes the artificial tree logical. I’ve found that the Scentcicles has a scent closest to the real thing. Well, that and the tree-scented candles from Bath and Body Works.
I just turned 60 and I don’t look anywhere near as old as she looks!
If I was a squirrel, that would be me! I’m always forgetting where I put things!
I wonder why their pupils are so different from that of other mammals? What evolutionary advantage does it provide?
