Greg, here's another non-spicy food lover. I can't eat spicy food. I order my Thai with zero stars. I was brought up on a very bland British / Canadian Maritimes diet. My dad thought garlic was seditious. He ate pizza from time to time - but only the nasty ChefBoyardee pizza crust mix, nothing approximating the real thing. He never ate pasta as far as I know.
I am branching out from that limited diet, but I still can't stand food to be very spicy.
But that was when I ruled the world
