If jalapeno peppers and hot sauce leave you cold, researchers have something that will set your taste buds on fire and make them beg for mercy. They have developed a new cayenne pepper "more than 20 times hotter than a jalapeno pepper" and two to three times hotter than peppers used in hot sauce, said Philip D. Dukes, a plant pathologist with the Agricultural Research Service.

Mo Hotta Mo Betta, the hot sauce mail-order outfit, kept getting complaints from habanero-guzzling parents whose children wanted to eat hot sauce like Mom and Dad but whose palates were too tender. The company tested dozens of sauces on 100 children aged 4 to 16 and came up with four that were widely liked, ranging from Cool Baby (a slightly spicy ketchup) through Wild Child (a barbecue sauce) and Crazy Kid (chipotle-based) to Screaming Teen (a jalapeno sauce).

This is it. This time I've done it. I've swallowed a hot sauce that is actually poisonous. Forget about the burn, any hot sauce can burn. All these other ominous things are happening. A faint, buzzing tension on my cheekbones, right beneath the eyes. Lightheadedness. My nose is running. I can't take a deep breath. Sweat streams from my cheeks and scalp. For an instant, space alters woozily as my ears pop. I open my mouth to speak and nothing comes out but a hideous croak.

Bartender Calixto Hernandez has a wrist as loose as Steven Tyler's tongue, so the results can be menacing if you're not careful. Every Sunday, Hernandez lords over one of the most popular build-your-own Bloody Mary bars in the city on the back patio of La Cita in downtown Los Angeles. He provides a pint glass half full (or more) of vodka and you go to work mixing and garnishing it from the movable feast of condiments, crisp bacon, sauces and pickled veggies he lines up on the side of the bar. Thanks to the oppressive August heat, which mandates a healthy amount of escapist day drinking, the Enabler has lately been obsessed with build-your-own Bloody Mary bars.
