My best recollection of the Smithsonian Mag that rated habenero's is that
it has a S value of something like 300,000 or 500,000 compared to a
halepeno which has an S value of about 5000. They didn't rank thai chili's
but my experience is that the heat is different.  Habenero's are much
hotter but the heat lasts for a shorter time.

(Sorry if my organization line is still screwed up. I have tried to fix it
but it not clear what is wrong.
