Cosmic coyote, here i go!
I have read a lot about this pepper, I wanted to grow some in our yard. The moment I saw him put it in his mouth, I winced. That is worse than spraying pepper spray in your mouth as an aperitif.
People should really find out if they have any GI issues before eating stuff like this. Because that's really what it comes down to as far as whether you can handle shit like this.
Then again I suppose the thrill seeking pepper-eating crowd aren't really big on risk assessment.
Capsaicin directly activates pain receptors for heat (much as mint/menthol short circuts cold receptors), but is actually somewhat anti inflamatory.
I had a ripe, counter dried ghost pepper grown by my nephew last week. It was a little worse than a garden variety Scotch Bonnet Habenero, but not much. Note for other vegans: you don't have to chug diry milk, nut milks, and in my case, tahini, work fine to mop up the hydrophobic capsaicin.
Interesting, I personally have a higher than normal permeability of my GI tract, and I know from personal experience that pretty much everything, from medication to certain foods hit me quicker and with greater effect than with most individuals.
I remember eating a whole cayenne pepper when I was 12 years old, the actual burning in my mouth and in my throat was nothing spectactular, however once it hit my stomach/intestines, I thought the world was ending.
A good prerequisite for surviving the uber, uber hot stuff is having a set of iron guts. If you don't have that, you're probably in for a really bad time.
TAKE THAT, meth head guy!
Reminds me of the time when i wanted to be badass and eat a spoonful of Blairs Megadeth sauce. Its funny today because i acted like such a bro beforehand, wich i dont usually do. My friend told me to take it easy on the sauce and only take half a spoonful but i was all NAH, DUDE GIMME THE ENTIRE SPOON WHOOP WHOOP HARDCORE. It completely kicked my ass and i was sure i was just a pussyhair away from a heart attack.
Because of that i always get some delicious schadefreude out of videos like this.
My co-worker essentially did the same thing. He had to go home after making a total jack-ass out of himself.
Almost certain this is a dupe.
This is no longer the world's hottest pepper. The Trinidad Scorpion (Butch T cultivar) pepper has been rated around 1.5 million Scoville units. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinidad_Scorpion_Butch_T_pepper
I've got 5 plants growing and I'm just waiting for them to ripen. Then I'm going to make an idiot of myself on youtube.

"eating the hottest people in the world"
There was a little one-man-operated diner down the street that used to sell these things. For four dollars, you could buy a burger with a dime-sized chunk of Ghost Pepper on top. The owner stored them in a totally unassuming white plastic jar that, if opened, could make you tear up from three feet away, and if you chatted to him nicely about the old Batman and rockabilly memorabilia on the walls, he was apt to hand out free samples.
His diner got shut down last year and nobody knows where he went.
Does a pepper like this even have any flavor, or is it all heat?
THA SUGAH RAIN
The fuck do you think? People who use this kind of stuff in food should just spritz some pepper spray on there for the same effect.
Hottest I ate was a Scotch Bonnet. The Jamaican guy was laughing when I ate it. Iced tea did not help.

I've eaten scotch bonnet too, and after that I started to appreciate flavour over heat.
Add mentos and Coke and get kicked in the balls. Then I'll care.
