Would the outcome be the same with a Mexican orchestra? ;-)

- The natives know how not to overdo it, they enjoy their food.

A habanero is not considered hot to a chillihead but it does cause extreme discomfort to people unaccustomed to eating them.Some of the players show little reaction yet others are turning slightly red in the face, coughing, sniffling, and tearing up. After you eat a hot pepper the heat slightly builds for a few minutes with habaneros and then levels off and after about 10 minutes it starts wearing away. A lot of people like hot peppers because they experience a temporary euphoria that kicks in from so much heat in your body. Try not to rub around your eyes if you do try to eat one.

Ten minutes later, something got in his eye and he tried to rub it out.
The pain, he tells me, was excruciating.

This was a few years ago; in the original video they explained that it was one of those ultrahots (Moruga scorpion or similar), probably equivalent to about five habanero peppers. (I've eaten similar ones, without playing an instrument, though.)

But, I always sink a few habaneros into each jar. That gives just the right amount of punch for me. I used to eat scorchingly hot things, but my taste for that has faded over the last 20 years. Nowadays if I order a plate of shrimp, I expect it to taste like shrimp. Not like a chemical warfare agent.
