The Giv'er was the one I tried, way too hot to be enjoyable for me. I like hot things like Scotch Bonnets chopped up in the spaghetti sauce etc... but this stuff was too much to be enjoyable. We were using it as a dip for fried pepperoni. In a chili or tomato sauce of some sort just a bit would probably be good.
There is good hot and insane crazy hot, I enjoy a nice sweat with each spoonful as well!
That Giv'er looks right up my street. It appears to be squarely in the "mix it with other stuff" category, though, meaning it certainly wouldn't be going on anything straight. A little mixed in some chili, though, might work nicely. That's basically what Temporary Insanity has been used for, since its flavor is quite characteristic (basically very strong cayenne) and doesn't really mix well with other sauces and sticks out too much for something like a stir fry or tomato sauce.
There's definitely an upper limit. Chopping up a ghost pepper and putting it on top of frozen burritos wasn't a very good idea, though it probably was the most intense thing I've ever experienced. When it's strong enough that just breathing in causes you to start coughing, you know it might be too much. Mincing it up fine and putting it in a Tai Pei fried rice dinner didn't work too well, either.
Like anything else, balance is important with hot stuff. And, just like in audio, where the extremes lie for each individual is highly personal.

Unfortunately not. There are quite a few selective cultivars floating around and vying for the title of world's hottest, and until they're stabilized and commercialized their availability is usually regional and they tend to be expensive. I'll wait until they work out how to get the strain to throw fruit with consistent characteristics and until they're more generally available.
