Should have looked at the link !

"Pepper X – Another pepper claiming to be TWICE as hot as the Carolina Reaper has surfaced, but this might have more merit.

However, we will have to wait and see if Pepper X is real before adding to our Top 10 list."

3,180,000 vs 2,200,000. Not twice as hot. Boy, they sure are lousy at math.

Thanx for the link, though. :mrgreen:

Top 5 most indebted states in the US.

1. California
"California has the highest debt-to-income ratio in the country. Residents of the Golden State make about $28,000 annually on average, according to U.S. Census Bureau data. The New York Federal Reserve Bank shows that Californians have a per-resident debt balance of $65,740. This gives Californians a debt-to-income ratio of 2.34 on average. Like many other states, most of Californians' debt is held up in their m ortgages. Californians owe about $51,190 on their m ortgages on a per-capita basis."

2. Hawaii
"Hawaii comes in second, with a debt-to-income ratio of 2.1. On average, Hawaiians make slightly more than [people in the top state on this list]. The median income in Hawaii is $31,905, as compared to $28,068 in [that state]. Residents of Hawaii also have slightly more debt per capita ... : $67,010, [compared] to $65,740. Hawaiians have the second-highest proportion of debt tied up in m ortgage. In total, $51,770 out of the total $67,010 in per capita debt that Hawaiians hold is owed on m ortgages. That means 77 percent of per- capita debt is m ortgage debt."

3. Virginia
"Virginia comes in third, with a debt-to-income ratio just below 2. The average Virginian makes about $31,557 and has $62,520 in debt. One reason why lenders may feel safe lending to Virginians, allowing them to have a high debt-to-income ratio, is their low delinquency rates. Only 1.27 percent of m ortgage debt in Virginia is delinquent by at least 90 days. That is the 13th-lowest rate in the country. Virginia also has a relatively high proportion of its debt in student loans (7.76 percent)."

4. Colorado
"Of Colorado's total debt, 6.85 percent is tied up in automobile debt. That's the second-highest rate in the top 10. However it is quite a bit lower than the national average of 9.57 percent. Overall, there is not much separating Colorado from [the next state up in the ranking]: Colorado has a debt-to-income ratio of 1.96. The median income in Colorado is $31,664 and the per capita debt is $62,200."

5. Utah
"Like the rest of the top 10, Utah residents have the vast majority of their debt tied up in m ortgages. Utah residents have $52,150 in per-capita debt, $38,240 of which is m ortgage debt. The state also has one of the lowest delinquency rates for m ortgage debt. Only 1.05 percent of m ortgage debt is 90 days past due in Utah. Again this may partially explain why lenders are so willing to lend to Utahans looking for m ortgages."

Top 5 points at which I threw a film in the proverbial waste basket:

5: Philadelphia
When Jodie Foster holds up a mirror at 1m distance from Tom Hanks, she asks "if he himself could see these crusts at 1m distance."
If she holds up a mirror at 1m, Hanks would see himself at 2m distance.

4: Jurassic Park
A guy climbs an electric fence, gets a shock, which propels him metres away.
Electric shocks cause your muscle to cramp. In real life the guy would've been "glued" to the fence.

3: Die Another Day
Has a lot of offending moments but for me it started with the "invisible" car. I tried to write a story about an invisible car when I was 7, and even then I had enough brains to realize it would never work in traffic.

2: Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull
A kid's pocket knife flies towards the skull from quite a distance, suggesting it's magnetic. After that he picks it off without effort.
If the magnetic field was so powerful it could lift a knife with all that weight on it and pull it towards it over a distance of 50 cm, it should have been considerably harder to remove it from the skull.

1: Baby Genius
A one-year-old tosses a very heavy wrench at a plumber's groin.

I am by no means backing up this scene in that movie, but electrical shock at a high voltage will cause spasms in the muscles that appears to throw you but what actually is happening is your muscle spasm is throwing you... :shock:

Is not going to happen in the same way it happens in Jurassic. My father was an electrician until an accident at work gave him such a shock he couldn't do it anymore. It has affected him - in more recent Simpsons episodes Homer tends to get electrocuted. Those scenes make him cringe. First reaction to Jurassic? "No way."
