I'm surprised Bacon Boy isn't all over this. Then again, maybe he went into a baconic coma when he looked at the menu. Or is on a plane to NJ right now. laugh

By the way, only one person has ever finished a Ghost Chili Dog. So there's a challenge for BOLers who want to make the trip.

We were at the farmers market the other day and they had ghost chilis for $10 for a half bushel.
It would take forever to use up a half bushel of Ghost Chilis!!! Most of our friends cant even eat my chili now and it only has one (1) habanero in it. Ghost chilis would kill them! laugh

You're supposed to remove it from the toaster before eating it. crazy

How many ravers accidentally bit down on their glow sticks. I think this one isn't too concerning.

Not exactly life threatening. Try again.

Guzzling it by the gallon would probably do the trick.

So we need only check for pins, needles, and razor blades? http://www.snopes.com/horrors/mayhem/needles.asp

That link claims that such things are usually hoaxes, and even in the exceeding rarely cases when it was done with intent to harm, people either needed stitches or required no medical treatment. Besides, who in the world gives apples for Halloween anyway? What is this, 1950?

Growing up, the McDonald's in our county would have metal detectors that you could run your candy under. This was in rural NWOhio.

It's also a good idea to remove it from the toaster before buttering it (at least the butter will only kill you slowly). wink

I recognize that the posts are amusing to some. To me, these are actual hazards. We are constantly being warned from all sides, on product labels and in magazines and on TV, about the deadly dangers lurking in our pantries and on our streets and in our air and water...and yet, we're still here. The warnings are so common that the concept of "watching out" for bad things has become absurd. We are supposed to use caution with and/or be concerned about nearly everything we ever do, taste, touch, feel, or see.

I recognize the impossibility of avoiding all bad stuff, and yet, because of when, where, and who I am, for me this has all become a part of my personality. My generation has been made to feel a need to have a layer of antibacterial soaps and plastic barriers between us and the rest of the world.

The onslaught of nonstop warnings have had the seemingly permanent effect of making me avoid touching doorknobs, avoid eating non-stick spray, avoid handling glowsticks, avoid chewing gum, etc. There are over 100 ordinary, everyday things that I can fit into this category of Harmful Things. Readers have suggested that this warrants psychotropic medication and/or the Ostrich Reaction (ignore the warnings, after all, I'm still here). But I don't know how to do that. I don't know how to wilfully ingest Titanium Dioxide in processed foods on a regular basis, after knowing (that is, thinking that I know) its direct connection to Alzheimer's.

What I've learned here is that very few people agree with me on these things - but whether that is from not knowing about them, or not caring about them, or simply disagreeing with them, is sometimes unclear. So, I've learned not to make small talk out of this type of subject with friends or family. People will think you're weird. And maybe one day I'll touch a bathroom doorknob, maybe somehow I'll relax and not have this list of 100 Harmful Things playing in my head throughout the day, but still, I doubt I'll be licking any grocery shelves any time soon.
