  • - Robert was on board, so later that week,

  • I hired a professional tailor

  • to help design the chili suit

  • based on a detailed sketch I had drawn.

  • - The easiest way is probably to put the chili in--

  • I guess from the neck part, right?

  • - Sure.

  • Our plan was to have the chili reservoirs

  • mimic the distribution of fat on a larger man's body

  • so it wouldn't look suspicious under clothing,

  • and with the help of a guy from Craigslist,

  • our tailor was able to take all the measurements he needed.

  • - The chili is gonna go here. - Mm-hmm.

  • - And we can get more in here too.

  • - You could probably do, like, a cup there, right?

  • - Yeah. Yeah. - Cup or so?

  • - Yeah, a cup, yeah. - Yeah. Okay.

  • - All right, so we'll see you around, then.

  • - Yeah. Thank you so much.

  • And a few days later, we received

  • a completed prototype

  • of a heat-resistant polyvinyl fluoride suit

  • designed to hold over 100 servings

  • of fresh chili.

  • The individual reservoirs would be linked

  • by a network of tubes that would all lead

  • to a battery-powered peristaltic pump

  • for dispensing the chili.

  • Using our intake funnel,

  • we loaded in over 30 pounds of Robert's product

  • that had been blended into a thin paste

  • to ensure an even flow without compromising the flavo.

  • So with that, I activated the pump,

  • and it was time to see if this could work.

  • [motor whirring]

  • As I had hoped,

  • the pump dispensed the chili

  • at a steady pace,

  • which was good,

  • but I realized we had overlookd

  • a crucial detail.

  • The chili suit prevented bathroom access,

  • and because of its weight,

  • removing it during a game

  • would not be an option.

  • So I experimented with a design

  • that would allow me to deposit my excretions

  • directly into custom rubber underwear

  • connected to a secondary pumping system

  • so I could eject it into a toilet

  • via a second tube down my right arm.

  • But once I had some clothing o,

  • I realized the potential for a costly mix-up

  • was too great.

  • So I had the bottom part of the suit

  • redesigned with strategic holes

  • in the groin and buttocks regin

  • that would allow the wearer

  • to relieve him or herself

  • without taking off the suit.

  • But there was still the issue of the temperature.

  • To meet health department standards,

  • Robert said the chili would have to remain

  • above 135 degrees Fahrenheit at all times.

  • But when I put it on, the heat was so intense

  • that I could barely have it against my skin

  • for more than a few seconds.

  • So I tracked down some heat-resistant polymer gel

  • that could insulate the body

  • against the most extreme temperatures.

  • - Feel anything?

  • - No. - Good.

  • - I did a preliminary test

  • with a blowtorch on various parts of my body

  • to ensure the gel would protect even my most sensitive regions.

  • [groaning]

  • And after getting gelled up from head to toe,

  • the burning sensation had completely vanished.

  • Yeah.

  • It seemed like we had solved every problem,

  • but there was still one final thing I had to take care of.

  • The pump on my chest that made the chili suit function

  • was made out of metal,

  • and to get into Rabobank Arena,

  • every ticket holder has to pass through a metal detector.

  • So I figured if I could convince security

  • that I had a medically necessary pacemake,

  • they wouldn't be suspicious when the alarm went off.

  • So I taped a real pacemaker to my chest

  • and then headed to a walk-in clinic

  • to request an X-ray

  • that would hopefully trick the physician

  • into writing me a doctor's not.

  • - I would need to actually examine you

  • and see why is it that you need the X-ray.

  • I have to have a reason why.

  • - Well, I'm paying you for it,

  • so what do you care?

  • - I'm actually-- legally, it's being...

  • monitored to see why we're ordering an X-ray.

  • - Oh.

  • Well, what's the minimum I need to say

  • to get one?

  • - Either some area hurts of your chest or--

  • - Sure. - You're having a cough.

  • - Okay. Yeah.

  • - Are you-- what are you experiencing?

  • - Yeah, both those. Yeah.

  • - Mm-kay.

  • - Just step as close as you can,

  • and you're gonna take this shirt off, okay?

  • - Your undershirt will be fine,

  • but I gotta get rid of the buttons, okay?

  • - Okay. Okay, sure.

  • - Take a big breath.

  • Hold it.

  • - And once the doctor saw

  • the pacemaker on my X-ray...

  • - It looks like it's in well position

  • and no abnormalities.

  • - She wrote me a doctor's note that would hopefully

  • get me through security.

  • Thank you so much, Doctor.

  • And that meant it was finally time to buy a ticket

  • to the next Bakersfield Condors home game.

- Robert was on board, so later that week,
