The Cayenne Pepper Test

Not that I was looking forward to the opportunity to do this test BUT I am glad that the opportunity arose on such a small scale.

Here is the cut.

Note to self to always were gloves when handling glass.

Here is the cut covered in Cayenne Pepper. I repeated the process a couple of times to make sure it got in there good.

And thirty seconds later, with no compress and no wiping of the cut.

Sixty seconds later, here I sit typing this thread and my thumb looks just like it did in the last pic.

Obvious question is : Did it burn ? Answer: NO

You didn't feel anything ? Answer: Yes

It felt like I sprinkled a little salt on it. Not the burning sensation one would expect at all and believe you me, I was holding my breath when I started to sprinkle it on.

As you know hands and fingers bleed for a while when cut. The bleeding stopped almost instantly after this little test.

It works..... No Joke.

I have a bottle of Cayenne in my locker at work incase someone knocks themself out with a 2x4.

That's one of those things where you wonder how anybody ever discovered it. :scratch
