There May Be A New World's Hottest Pepper....That Could Literally Kill You

Can't Even Wrap My Head Around This.

A man from Wales named Mike Smith may have created a new world's hottest pepper, called Dragon's Breath, and to be honest, it scares the shit out of me.

Anything that looks that non-threatening must be insane.

For those of you not hip to spicy lingo, heat in peppers is measured in Scoville units. This new Dragon's Breath pepper is allegedly 2.48 MILLION Scoville units.  To put that into perspective, a jalapeno is 2,500-5,000 Scoville units.  That means Dragons Breath is 992 times hotter than a jalapeno.  Can you even wrap your head around that?

It would also be about 900,000 units hotter than the Carolina Reaper, which is the current hottest pepper in the world.

ON TOP OF THAT, the creator says that if someone eats it they can potentially go into anaphylactic shock, which would close their airways leading to DEATH.

And you KNOW the YouTube warriors of the world are not going to take head to this warning.  Death is a small life to pay for YouTube infamy. (But seriously no one should eat this pepper ever.)  

Below is how people react to eating a Carolina Reaper.  Could you imagine a pepper even worse?  Cause I certainly can't.
