With the rise of so-called 'internet challenges. It's not surprise that people will do some absolutely moronic things because its a 'challenge' but sometimes these go beyond moronic and to the point where it can result in a trip to the emergency room or even the morgue and you can find videos of all these challenges on YouTube.
Here are 4 Dangerous Internet Challenges
1. The Pass-out Challenge
This challenge is where a person gets their friend to cut off their air supply until they fall unconscious. Yeah, thats the challenge, have a friend choke you out. There is no part two, its have a friend choke you out so you can put it on youtube. Why people thought this was a good idea I've got no clue but the CDC says that at least 82 people from the ages of 6-19 have died in the U.S alone from this challenge.
2. The Salt and Ice Challenge
This challenge involves putting salt all over a part of your body, then putting ice on it then trying to withstand the pain for as long as you can. The problem is that this creates a chemical reaction that will burn your skin. A twelve year old had to be hospitalized for second degree burns and it took him two months to recover.
3. The Warhead Challenge
I'm sure plenty of us have had extreme sour warheads before and for those who have not, they are INCREDIBLY sour candies. I mean just sucking on one of them is a thoroughly unpleasant experience. Now this challenge is to put a whole lot of them into your mouth at once and I know that right now all of you who've had one are probably now cringing at the thought. However it gets worse. It doesn't just feel uncomfortable it will make you bleed due to the ingredients in them, A young boy in Australia burned his tongue on a lollipop and you can find plenty of videos on YouTube of people doing this challenge and then bleeding from their mouths.
4. The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge
This is actually the first time I actually found out who Kylie Jenner is, I was kinda vaguely aware that a person with that name existed but now I can put a face to the name. So apparently this Ms. Jenner has like large lips and people wanted to emulate that. So what they do is put a lips in a shot glass and suck out all the air to create a vacuum the problem is that it's not healthy, it can bruise your lips and burst blood vessels, and at worst it can result in a trip to the hospital due to the fact that your lips burst.
5. The Fire Challenge
Of all the challenges on this list, this one is the worst. First let me ask you a question, do you have any desire to set yourself on fire on film then upload it to YouTube? I hope not but the fact that this challenge exists shows that some people do have that desire.
That is what the fire challenge is, a person dumps flammable liquid on themselves and then lights a match so as to set themselves on fire another person films it and the result is uploaded to YouTube and yes, this has killed people. The fact that there are people willing to do this lowers my faith in humanity.
