A suggestion

After chopping a jalapeño pepper, wash your hands thoroughly, especially before rubbing that little ball thingy in the corner of your eye. Trust me on this one.

Avery Island is a somewhere they take schoolchildren on field trips if they grow up in southern Louisiana. The whole ride there the teachers remind us to wear gloves, not touch anything, and for fuck's sake if we're stupid enough to touch something don't rub our eyes for 48, check, 64, make that YOU KIDS CAN'T COUNT THAT HIGH hours. This is because Avery Island is covered in these, from which they make Tabasco Sauce. Seems rubbing the juice of peppers with a Scoville rating of 300,000 is a good way to burn your soul out through your eyes.

I don't think that kid ever recovered.

We didn't either.

Oh, good lord, that sounds awful. Good story though. I mean "good", I guess.

It gets even worse than that. You may want to wash your hands before taking a trip to the lavatory. Turns out you can burn any sensitive skin.

And, BTW, if you then frantically pulled out your burning contacts, throw them out. Now! Do not try to put them in again later. Or the next day. Or a week from now.
