    Why are we called 50Hertz?

    NERD FACT: Similar to licking a 9v battery, the “frequency of the tingling sensation induced by Sichuan pepper on your tongue is consistently at around 50 Hertz”. - Cognitive Neuroscience Dept., UCL, 2013

    Ok, but you're telling me that Sichuan pepper is NOT actually spicy?

    Correct! Sichuan pepper is often misunderstood as being super "hot" spicy but it's not! It only gives you an electrifying and tingling sensation. It's confusing because Sichuan pepper is usually paired with hot chilli peppers and they're the ones that usually BRING. THE. HEAT.
