The hottest chili in the world, the Naga Viper, resides in Cumbria, a small county in the UK. It's so hot that experts are considering about using it in spice bombs to incapacitate enemy soldiers in war. Gerald Fowler, the man who rared the pepper by mixing three of the hottest variations of chili pods known to man, owns the Chilli Pepper company in England.

The pepper has a world-setting tongue-scorching Scoville rating of 1,359,000 units, beating its predecessor, the Bhut Jolokia, or "ghost chili", by 300,000 points. The Scoville scale rates heat by tracking the presence of a chemical compound. To get a better idea of how blazing hot this pepper is, most varieties of jalapeƱo peppers measure in the 2,500 to 5,000 range. "It's painful to eat," Fowler told the Daily Mail. "It's hot enough to strip paint."

So a very impressive chemical discovery all in all and could prove beneficial in other areas of technology such as combat in war!
