I understand, more or less, why spicy food feels hot in the mouth. I know it has something to do with capsicum stimulating heat receptors on your tongue. And following one occasion when I sneezed while eating chili I can confirm that it has the same effect on olfactory tissue. Ouch.But why does it burn so much the next morning on it's way out? After all it doesn't burn other tissue. I've never heard of having to rinse it off your hands before it burns them or having to wear safety goggles whilst cooking it to protect your eyes. And it passes by my sphincter so briefly and yet it burns.By the way, for our American friends, 'bum' means 'fanny'. In the UK 'fanny' means another even more sensitive part of the body!
Why would evolution have put those receptors round the anus?
I've never noticed this 
And I've probably got a bigger willy. 
Ha ha. Where do you get all these unusual emoticons?
