Silly title, silly brain. I always wonder why people first ate certain foods – especially things like chilli which just burn your mouth if they’re the really hot ones. And stuff like cheese – who would eat moldy milk that’s solidified?
Anywho, very funny image in my head is of a couple of neanderthals daring each other to eat chillis because you know, Bill here can kill an aurochs on his own but he can’t eat one of the little chilli peppers. (Forgive the gross anachronisms but it made me chuckle).
