If you wanted proof that our world is falling apart- it’s here! You remember when you used to say something naughty and Mom would wash your moth out with soap? It wasn’t exactly what I would call a pleasant experience….
Apparently, kids today didn’t learn that lesson, so they’re taking it upon themselves! There is a new challenge traveling between teenagers on Facebook. They are actually daring each other to EAT laundry pods. So far this year, there have been 37 reported cases involving teenagers, over half were intentional.
Now I know kids will be kids, and sometimes they dare each other to do stupid things. But never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that they would dare each other to eat laundry detergent! Do they not realize this could kill them?? I am seriously afraid for the youth of today.
Your parents used to say, “Who cares what other people think of you?” Well, teenagers today are overly sensitive! They live and die by social opinion. If you’re not weird enough, if your profile doesn’t stand out, if you don’t wear the most ridiculous costumes- you aren’t like-worthy, re-tweet worthy, or friend-worthy. So if you’re not creative enough on your profile, you can always make it stand out with a little stupidity! Then, maybe, other people will pay attention to your profile. Of course, when you do serious damage to your intestinal track and end up in the hospital for a long term stay, they’ll definitely be paying attention! Do us, and yourself, a favor. DON’T EAT THE TIDE POD!!! Instead, maybe consider doing something constructive.
