The one's I've seen just used pottery crocks with glaze containing a lot of thorium/radium. Of course there's nothing like orange Fiesta Ware to peg your Geiger counter

i seem to recall hearing thai hot in the past

but after a couple of beers and you're hungry it didn't register

they say you learn in two ways

base repetition and shock

definitely a shocker

Yeah, I stayed away from Thai hot on my trip there last March. I'm getting old, I guess. It is a common question to ask foreigners there. Niece and her husband would get extra chilies so we could share dishes. They have some tiny ones that are like taking the heat from a large bird's-eye and compressing it down into a grain of rice.

going in to a hip new thai restaurant for the first time

and just assuming the heat scale was in the same universe

so i order my curry hot

and she says "hot or thai hot?"

i remember saying "thai hot" and eating a salad with ginger dressing before the event

apparently the word thai is key here (if she would have used words like "10x" or "molten" or "surface of the sun" hot, i would have had a clue)

i thought it was odd, but didn't put two and two together when the food runner (delivering my dish) was suited up like he was handling nuclear waste

and isn't it funny that there's a universal sign language when humans are in food shock/distress from such things

flailing arms, fanning your face (like that's going to help), eyes streaming tears, schnozz opened like a faucet, profuse sweating, etc.

lesson learned

One of my favorite Thai places here, has what I call the random scale. They ask you 1-5 for how hot you want it, they then proceed to make whatever they want and serve it to you.  I've had 5s that didn't even make me reach for the drink, and I've had 1s that I couldn't finish.  I have noted that with the chili oil dishes, they seem to increase in hotness by a level or two when stored in the fridge overnight.  So that 3 you had last night will be a solid 4+ for lunch the next day.

 
there needs to be some sort of reference

might be a good idea to put a scale on the menu (in small print)
