Hottest Chili Naga Viper

Hottest Chili Naga Viper - The hottest chili pepper on Earth is the Naga Viper, a pepper grown in a greenhouse flanked by snow and freezing weather, and beats out the likes of peppers that are grown in India and Mexico, according to Fox News.

A chili farmer from northwest England was able to cross three of the hottest varieties of pepper to create the Naga Viper, according to the report, which cited Guinness World Records.

"It's painful to eat. It numbs your tongue, then burns all the way down. It can last an hour, and you just don't want to talk to anyone or do anything. But it makes you feel great," Gerald Fowler told Fox News.

The pepper hit 1,359,000 on the Scoville scale, which measures the chili's level of capsaicin, the chemical that is responsible for the numbing, burning sensation in peppers. By comparison, the next hottest pepper—the Bhut jolokia—peaks at around 300,000 and police-grade pepper spray ranks around 5,000,000 on the scale.

Jalapenos rank between 2,500 and 3,000 on the scale.

Ironically, the new Naga Viper grows in cold weather and is "hot enough to strip paint," he told the Metro.

“Our Naga Viper has been tested as the hottest chilli in the world, although we are still in the process of ensuring that what we have will be consistently the hottest,” Fowler said on his website “Warwick HRI, who have an established name in the testing of chilli heat levels, say that it is the hottest chilli they have ever tested, using the World Standard dried chilli testing protocol.”

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
