Don't keep us all in suspense, when are you going to eat that noxious pizza?

Don't know yet. And I might not. I will probably get a pack of my friends together to cheer me on/say things that will make me toss my cookies. (Maybe I'll even video feed so you guys can watch too! ) I'll probably have to do it when I won't be at work the next day.

That would be the wise course to take.

Yes, that would be worth watching. On an empty stomach.

You might need a week off.

If the pizza challenge is just about a hot pepper spice then you can use plain yogurt to protect your mouth and throat from a blistering burn. However, if the "spices" are something more noxious then you may wish to pass on this challenge. In fact I would argue that the pizza restaurant issuing the challenge has to publish a list of ingredients just like fast food chains do nowadays because the ingredients in this challenge may pose an immediate health risk to customers who take the challenge.

Its entirely possible to give someone with an undiagnosed heart condition a heart attack after eating this food.

just my two cents

I agree, it can, but it can also stop one

At least a heart attack would be quicker and less messy than food poisoning.
SlowCoder, remember to stock up on plenty of toilet paper and carpet shampoo, and keep a nice big bucket handy.

And make sure you get insurance, just in case you start throwing flames (from either end).

One of the symptoms of heart attack is vomiting.

But it wouldn't last as long as vomiting from food poisoning.
