The Million Dollar Question

So.......
I'm making my soy and wasabi dipping sauce for my smoked salmon pinwheels and, realizing that I had quite a bit of wasabi to soy sauce, I decided to dip my finger and give it a test. Seconds later my eyes are watering, my sinuses feel violated, I'm slamming my hand on the counter gasping for air. PERFECT!!!! And back in my finger went. Repeat.
All I can think about is my sister asking "How can you enjoy that??"

So.......
Why is it that we love foods that are hot or powerfull when we tear up, sweat and generally have the type of reaction as stated above.
