This ESPN reporter took a big old bite out of a Naga Jolokia chili pepper -- also known as the Hottest Chili Pepper in the World.

Wikipedia says that "one seed from a Naga Jolokia can sustain intense pain sensations in the mouth for up to 30 minutes before subsiding."

I doubt there's enough milk in the world to make THAT kind of burn go away.
