I've been thinking (oh noes!)... Peppers are hollow, but what's actually inside? Is it simply air or perhaps some gas secreted while growing? Assume it is air, is it then air from where the pepper is grown, or from a more recent location? If the "filling" is indeed from where it's grown - let's say Croatia (I've got reliable intelligence that the best tasting vegetables are grown there): If I'm lucky, I might just manage to carefully make a couple of holes in the pepper, breath in, and get a small breath of this mysterious gas. That's a mini vacation right there!
