Thai Food: Threat or Menace?

BBC NEWS | England | London | Burning chilli sparks terror fear: "Firefighters wearing protective breathing apparatus were called to D'Arblay Street, Soho, after reports of noxious smoke filling the air. Police closed off three roads and evacuated homes following the alert. Specialist crews broke down the door to the Thai Cottage restaurant at 1900 BST on Monday where they discovered the source - a 9lb pot of chillies."

Don't laugh. There was a raid where Apaches chased a bunch of Mexicans into a church, fastened the doors, and dropped bundles of burning chillies down the chimney, suffocating the lot.

My Brother-in-Law and I decided to fry some chillies once. Bad idea.
