Ghost Peppers

Just for the record, you may think you can handle hot food, but you can't. At least not like Anadita Dutta Tamuly:

A 28-year-old Indian woman smeared chilli pepper seeds on her eyes after gobbling up 51 of the world's hottest chillies to earn a place in the Guinness Book of Records.

Anadita Dutta Tamuly completed her eye watering challenge in just two minutes on Friday under the watchful eye of chef Gordon Ramsay, who was monitoring her record attempt.

She then shocked onlookers by smearing handfuls of seeds from the "ghost chillies", or bhut jolokia, into her eyes.

That, my friends, is hardcore. Though I am amused that the previous record was eight jalapenos. How was that good enough for a world record?

Video, just for good measure
