New piece of peppery knowledge: if you drop a really hot pepper (470,000 SHU) on the floor and accidently step on it, the bottom of your foot will still burn like hell. The tougher skin doesn't seem to matter, or if it does, it doesn't help a lot. Same with if a fresh seed falls off the counter and lands between your toes. I'm wearing socks from now on when I process hot peppers lol.
