ZOMG! Please tell me that Pixel walks through walls! And frankly, striding through a brick barrier and shrugging off debris is close enough. I'm sure Sidney will get the reference.

Another take on spiciness, from http://arstechnica.com/staff/2015/01/authentic-hunan-cuisine-will-melt-your-face/

For the person who was scorched by authentic Thai: when i was in California, there was a Thai restaurant run by first generation immigrants that had the following grades of spiciness: mild, medium, hot, tearful, choking, intolerable. I could make it to tearful there; this was hotter.
In which the author engages in chemical warfare with his own mouth.

OK Sydney, let's see you beat these guys in eating the really hot stuff - the world's certified hottest pepper, the "Carolina Reaper".

(There's a link at the very end to see their attempts to recover from their amazing feat in a separate video.)

Didn't realize there was a fan page, I'll post this question here, instead.
+Grrl Power   at what point in your comic would you consider doing a published hard-copy volume  of the strip, any team milestones or reveals you'd wish to hit before doing such a thing?
Additionally, any of you on this page, what do you think would need to be in a hard-copy to make it worth your while?
A death, perhaps?
 Just curious.
Oh, additionally, I really hope it's O.K. that I used 'knife-in-the-teeth' guy as my profile picture.

The punchline for this one isn't spot on, but I liked it too much to give it up.

It bugged me that the Gestalt power had no effect on Sidney. But they never tried sharing Orbs. So the question is, does it have to be hands? Could they wear matching cutaway tops, stand back to back for skin contact, and be able to harness four orbs at once?

I have a feeling that this will come up. As to why they were holding hands: She only has two attack related orbs. The Lighthook, and the PPO, (But only if your hip.) This means that by having Gesult hold onto Sydney's arm, Sydney could use flight and shields, while Gesult use PPO or Lighthook. And I have a feeling that since Sydney is only able to use the orbs with her hands, it would makes sense that main focal point for her power use, that Gesult would have to be touching her hand as well.

OK, here's the post-challenge video.

About 7:40 into their discussion of how it felt, they get several other people from their "staff" to try small pieces of the killer pepper (I suspect at least in part to get their friends to realize that their reactions were real and not staged).

I think their reactions, particularly the young woman's, are more revealing than the macho "tough it out" reaction of the original testers (even though they ate more).

My only suspicion that this may all be fake is that there is no "my G-d, I've been MACED!" reaction when they started cutting up one of the peppers to pass around.

Hint: I you ever decide to use a food processor to grind raw horseradish root instead of hand grating, get someone ELSE to open the food processor when you are done (and hopefully at least a block away).  Having made that mistake when preparing a large batch of fresh ground horseradish root for Passover one year, I will take pepper spay in the face before doing that again.

And the perfect quote for this moment: "It would be pointless dining together again until after our taste buds grew back".

Technical article: How Do You Scale/Score a Scoville?
How do you actually determine how hot a pepper is? What is a Scoville when it's at home and how do set about measuring one?
