Info on the Chilli grenade:

GAUHATI, India – The Indian military has a new weapon against terrorism: the world's hottest chili.

After conducting tests, the military has decided to use the thumb-sized "bhut jolokia," or "ghost chili," to make tear gas-like hand grenades to immobilize suspects, defense officials said Tuesday.

It has more than 1,000,000 Scoville units, the [un]scientific measurement of a chili's spiciness. Classic Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, while jalapeno peppers measure anywhere from 2,500 to 8,000.

"The chili grenade has been found fit for use after trials in Indian defense laboratories, a fact confirmed by scientists at the Defense Research and Development Organization," Col. R. Kalia, a defense spokesman in the northeastern state of Assam, told The Associated Press.

Lost in translation [and English is one of the official languages of India.]

It's "chili grenade" as in "chili pepper" and not as in "Chilly Willy."

That’s what needed for America’s inner city ghettos whenever they erupt into riot zones.

They may have also used the top secret "Chilly Gun" as well...

Got loser written all over him, doesn’t he?

I take it the translation should’ve been ‘chile grenades,’ and not grenades that froze his butt off?

This is why you should always have an ample supply of crackers.

Ghost Pepper plants are easy to grow and (for obvious reasons) quite immune from bugs and rabbits, deer, etc. When dehydrated, the peppers keep well and a VERY SMALL amount of the resulting powder will flavor a very large pot of chili!!!

Recalling your experience with canning your peppers.

Now what was that recipe again?
