6 Super Spicy Snack Challenges To Haze Your Idiot Friends

If you buy something through this post, IGN may get a share of the sale. For more, read our Terms of Use.

The bonds of friendship are often strengthened by being horrible to each other. It's paradoxical, but sometimes causing your friends discomfort, or out-right pain, can bring you closer. It's so dumb, but that's the way it is. Far be it from us to question the rich history of people being jerks to their best group of friends. Remember what happened to Julius Caeser? Those were his closest friends, and they probably considered it the ultimate bro-goof. Things were much different in antiquity.

You don't need to trick people into eating these spicy food items, but it does make it a little more fun. You can also challenge your friends to an eat-off, where you see who can suffer the least from these painful food items. Or just trick them, it's up to you.

Die Hard 6 will officially be called "McClane."

Speaking to Empire, the film's producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura revealed the title while also confirming Bruce Willis will heavily feature in the movie.

Die Hard 6, originally rumored to be called Die Hard: Year One, will follow a 60-year-old McClane and a younger McClane in his 20s as well. But despite the supposed time jumps, di Bonaventura has reassured fans Willis will still have a large role in the film.

“I don’t know how you do Die Hard without Bruce,” di Bonaventura said. “The idea that he’s not very significant in this movie is not accurate at all. We are gonna explore John McClane in his twenties. But just as prominent is the 60-year-old version.”
