The other study was conducted by physiologists at the University of Grenoble in France. They concluded that men with a taste for spicy food tend to have higher levels of the hormone testosterone (which is known to make men more adventurous, aggressive, and sexually active. Those with the highest levels tend to be more dominant, or the alpha male, of a group. I knew eating the world’s hottest pepper was a good idea…or am I just a prisoner of my intense manliness?

  1. A couple Jack London quotes seem to come to mind
    “The proper function of a man is to live, not exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.”

    “I would rather be ashes than dust. I would rather be a suburb meteor , every atom of me a magnificent glow than a sleepy permanent planet.”
