Ghost Chili

What happens when you eat a ghost chili? Does it hurt to eat a ghost chili? Should you drink copious amounts of milk to offset the searing pain that comes from consuming a ghost chili? I’ve no idea. Personally, I think you have to be certifiable to want to eat anything that will hurt you.

Tool Triple

You wait ages for any posts with a reference to the word tool and then two come along at once.

1970s Euro Porn Style РLehrmädchen-Report

Satellite TV came to the UK in the late 1980s and it wasn’t long before my parents ponied up the subscription fees and got a dish attached to the back of the house. And with that came a world of simultaneously truly awful and truly amazing programming from the far reaches of the Earth. But mainly mainland Europe. Compared to what we’d had to contend with before – four entire channels of mostly far less than 24 hours...
