Dave...... I'm compiling a dictionary/rncyclopedia of measurements named for people ... including the Scoville Heat Unit ... with data like when/where born and died. I've ol' Wilbur's birth Jan 22, 1865 in Bridgeport, Conn. But his death, apparently in 1942, is shrouded in a pepper-fog of mystery. You say Detroit, which is where he worked for Parke-Davis, and that sounds reasonable. Somebody else said Florida. And no date closer than the year 1942. Can you point me to other sources or anything that I might be able to nail down?

Here in New Mexico we're agog, to say the least, about the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion, which checked in at somewhere between 1.2 and 3 million SHU with the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University ... beating out the bhut jalokia's 1 million. Hot times, as we like to say, in the old town tonight.

Thanks for any help you might be able to share........

Love the show! Good to hear from the Dave's! It reminded me of about 10 years ago, my family & friends would frequent the local mexican restaurant and got to be regulars! One of the waiters who used to wait on us was into hot food & so we would bring fresh habaneros & different sauces to try & share! I was quite a fan of Dave's insanity sauce & would talk about it so much the waiter thought my name was Dave! I tried to tell him a few times, it was Ray but he was having no part of it! We no longer live on that side of town, but once in a blue moon, I run into the waiter and he still calls me Dave! Hey, I have been called worse!!!!
