I didn’t know I needed that in my life, but apparently I do. Mono Neon is pretty fun.

I just don’t see any way these are spicy enough to do actual damage to your stomach. I routinely eat far hotter things (habaneros, ghost peppers) with no physical damage to any of my alimentary canal. Spicy hot just feels hot, it’s not actually damaging hot.

What I can see happening is that you eat so many they irritate your stomach, which is unused to it, and it starts cranking out tons of acid giving you an ulcer. Or you just ate too damn many Cheetohs, period.

Wait, WTF? How does that happen? It’s not like we’re talking about hard, sharp foods here, and they’re a mass produced snack item, so they’re not particularly spicy, either.

Apparently the flaming hot cheetos caused him to both bleed internally, and to vomit blood.

Well, it makes no sense that a cheeto did it. If you bleed from your stomach lining, there are two directions for that blood to go (assuming “back into your circulatory system” being a non-starter) – up and out, or down and out.

Powdered and puffed corn, even coated with a sugary-spicy yet water soluble substance to “harden” it shouldn’t do much damage even if swallowed whole and not chewed. Chewed it should be a paste.

To think before today I didn’t know what a Lil Xan was, now I want Leonard Nimoy to come back from the grave and make an “In Search of…” special episode about Xan’s mystery cheeto.

Maybe the rolling them in crushed glass prior to consumption did it???

I hate to break it to you but ingesting spicy, fat laden food most definitely can cause bleeding stomach or esophageal ulcers.

With these I think the nutritional data sheet doesn’t show immense amounts of fat. A spicy curry should be far more deadly.

That’s how I eat snacks at work. Keeps my hand clean for typing.

Also, those Cheetos are pretty freaking hot. At least for me.

One of the few “life hacks™” I’m fully on board with.

Hey, thanks for the heads-up on MonoNeon. Groovy.

It’s the red pepper/capsicum powder, actually. Something similar happened to me, albeit not including the Chee-Tos. It also involved coughing up/vomiting a bit of blood, so yes, this IS actually entirely possible from eating too damn many Flaming Hot Chee-Tos.
