Challenges are getting way out of hand.
The first act of stupidity I heard of was a few short years back, when kids – when I say kids, I mean anyone 25 and under – were burning their skin with ice and salt.
Okay. I can see trying something to see if it’s true. But for GOD sake, if you see a video of someone burning their flesh off, WHY THE HELL are YOU going to do it? That shit is not only painful, but pointless. I mean, what are you trying to prove??? Your bravery?
Bravery is shoving another person out of the middle of the street when they’re about to get hit by a car. And if someone is stupid enough to play chicken to prove themselves, perhaps they need HELP, as do those who challenge them to such a potentially fatal end.
There’s nothing funny at all about this challenge. It ends with death.
The cinnamon challenge was bad enough. My daughter did it, and she nearly hacked up a lung.
More recent was the Tide pod challenge. And now … the condom snorting challenge!
Due to the risk of being reported, I won’t caption the above gif. But, any ‘House’ fan will know what he would say about condom snorting … or any other outrageous challenge.
End of sermon.
