Kid Eats A Ghost Pepper And His Entire Life Flashes Before His Eyes (Video)

A person who specialized in quotable phrases once said, "Those who fail to remember the past are destined to repeat it."

Based on what I've seen, people who insist on eating some of the world's hottest peppers are terrible students of history.

And based on the videos I've come across (and personal experience), teenagers who haven't discovered drugs yet have an odd obsession with eating ghost peppers for no discernible reason -- I assume they just want to know what it's like to feel alive.

However, successfully eating a ghost pepper is about as impressive as having sex with a truck stop prostitute. You're doing something thousands of people have done before, and it's going to end up burning at some point.

But nobody bothered to tell that to the kid in this video. And as a result, we get to see the personification of regret -- and he hasn't even realized it has to come out the other end at some point.
