The science behind why chillies are hot

Have you ever wondered what makes chilli peppers so hot? and why a fruit would ever evolve so things can't eat it without being in pain? With the help of a scotch bonnet I "try" to explain. The scotch bonnet is by far the hottest thing I have ever eaten. I spent 30 mins practicing the script before hand only to have my brain melt on camera and forget half the things I wanted to say. Sorry about the typo at the end. It was meant to say "the guys from work were drunk enough to try a small amount of this pepper" Copyright Disclaimer Under Section 107 of the Copyright Act 1976, allowance is made for "fair use" for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

Myles Power

Hi it's me Myles. for years now I have wanted to upload videos onto the internet and like every serial killer knows: eventually fantasizing just doesn't do it for you anymore. So here I am making rants about people who talk bolox about science here on the internet and hopefully someday I'll be Dr Power and have a evil base with ninja-pirat hybrids. Muhahahah
