Humanity Is Stupid: ‘Tide Pod Challenge’ and Other Dumb Hypes Proving this

After the Tide pod challenge that rocked the social media, Nexter.org decided to remember some more cases proving sometimes people are silly.

Please, don’t try these at home.

Tide Pod Challenge

Have you ever been thinking of eating laundry detergent? If not, then you probably haven’t heard about Tide Pod challenge that caused a real hype among teenagers on social media.

The task is to put a pod in their mouth, bite down on it and then post on social media.

The doctors and experts beat on alarm as such ‘game’ may end for teens in serious poisoning or even be lethal.

“The things that are going around on social media is an attempt to get views and attempt to get clicks. It ceases to be fun and games when someone ends up in the emergency department,” said Alfred Aleguas, Poison Control Management Director.

So far this year, Poison Control knows of 40 instances where teens tried to eat Tide pods.

At this point, no one has died from the pod challenge but Tide pods have proved to be deadly.

Several stores including Walmart, Walgreens, Ralph’s, and Food 4 Less have locked up Tide Pods in plastic blocks or behind glass doors, according to recent social media reports.


Duct Tape Challenge

Duct tape challenge was a trend in 2016. It was a dangerous game where people wrap themselves in duct-tape and try to break free.

There are thousands of videos on the social media platforms. Some of them even injured themselves while challenging.

One case became tragic to a fourteen-year-old Skylar Fish who suffered severe head injuries, a brain aneurysm and damage to his eye socket after the challenge.

Cinnamon Challenge

One more stupid challenge – attempting to swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon powder in 60 seconds without liquids.

The challenge is painful and highly dangerous as it’s damaging to the lungs.

Condom Challenge

In 2015 internet was obsessed with the condom challenge. To take part, all you need to do is post a video of a condom water balloon falling onto your head. Looks odd and creepy.

Kylie Jenner Challenge

Kylie Jenner challenge is a delightful 2015 trend in which teens attempt to get the luscious lips of the Kim Kardashian sister and then share the results with the hashtag #KylieJennerChallenge.

They grab a shot glass, place it over their lips, and suck. The result is swollen huge lips. Some attempts have gone awry: girls end up with bruises, soreness and even torn skin.
