I woke up today feeling pretty good. I didn’t have class until 12:35 so I had some time to browse my usual sites and relax a bit. However, this is what I was greeted with:
If you could not stomach the video, The Condom Challenge tasks the participant to snort a condom through their nostril and pull it through their nostril without chocking to death.
I really do not have many words for this. I am still baffled that this exists. I think this challenge is a prime example why all these internet challenges need to stop. In the past these challenges were not potentially deadly, so they were much more enjoyable. A prime example is the Cinnamon Challenge:
Or the Milk Challenge:
With the emergence of new challenges brings more risk. The chances of that girl suffocating because a condom was lodged in her nose is pretty high so some sort of “Your child is about to do something completely stupid” warning should be administered. At least try to eliminate these challenges from becoming viral because sooner or later someone is going to get seriously hurt and then that is when the real problems will arise.
