India to weaponize world's hottest chili as a grenade, a chili bomb!

India to weaponize world's hottest chili

A tear gas grenade this is something! The worlds hottest Chili this can be deadly, this is a weapon. It has more than 1,000,000 Scoville units, the scientific measurement of a chili's spiciness.

Classic Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, while jalapeno peppers measure anywhere from 2,500 to 8,000. A million can you believe it? People actually somehow eat this stuff.

This is in the Guinness book of world records as by far the worlds hottest Chili. The military has been authorized to put it in a hand grenade, a chili bomb.

Supposedly it is a non toxic way of ferreting out terrorists as a effective nontoxic weapon because its pungent smell can choke terrorists and force them out of their hide-outs.

It sounds worse than tear gas to me. It will be used to disperse crowds and can be used instead of pepper spray for women and others to protect themselves.

I like a good to medium hot Indian curry, but this sounds like a little too much for me.

I can just see this in a Cheech and Chong movie. "Man we need more tacos to go with this."

Me too Holte but that sounds downright dangerous.

Mamma Mia! That's some spicy weapon! Are we going to need an Alka-Seltzer filtered gas mask? Man will always look for new and more efficient ways to hurt their fellow man.

By the way, Jim - I consider FDGM an Environmental Blog with additional content.
