    That would be a walk in the park compared to the Reaper

    Scoville scale: 1,569,300 on average SHU

    These are no joke I have tried one, I like hot spicy stuff these for me are OUT OF BOUNDS....

    Immediate hiccups and my body said F it and most of it came back out. Still the next day OH MY GOD it was uncomfortable to well you know...... Sit so to speak.

    The guy who invented them said he has newer stock that put these to shame and will unleash them once someone else tops this one.

    I've heard about those Reapers...The hybrid ghost ones damn near did me in..and I have a very high tolerance to the higher end of the scale and the old leather throat..Those Reapers sound scary!..LOL!..

    Centralia? Are the fires still burning? Or did they ever figure out how to extinguish them?
  • FestYboyFestYboy Posts: 2,657
    It's an anaerobic reaction... And that reaction creates oxygen for the burn. There's no putting it out.

    I believe so

    They are still burning. Mostly moving away from what's left of the town, but there are only a few homes left. The gov't bought up all the other homes and tore them down. Check out "graffitti highway" if you get a chance. It's part of Hwy 61 that is closed and hundreds of people "tagged" it.

    Yes sir. Seems it was ignited by a trash burning, caught a seam and continues to this day.

    Yeah, we had a lot of deep mines for anthracite coal in the area. Some of the were "bootleg" mines, where individuals dug down on land they didn't own and left undocumented mine shafts in the area.

    A mine fire was started near our cemetary. There was a strip mine near it and people would throw their trash into it. After a while, someone would light it on fire to clear it out to make room for more trash. The theory is that this somehow started the coal on fire.

    Around 1960, the town tried using huge "steam" shovels to dig it out, but it was too deep. They then tried fly ash barrier to smother it but there were too many unknown mine shafts which keep it fed with oxygen.

    Check out Centralia mine fire on YouTube if you are interested, there's tons of stuff on it. A couple pretty good documentaries and lots of photos.

    As a youngster, I thought it was normal for the ground to burn. We had at one time, 3 separate mine fires in a 4 mile radius.

    And apologies to the OP for hijacking the thread.

    Been there many times. The whole area is depressed but the landscape is beautiful.
