    And for those who thought the "Tide Pod Challenge" took the cake for stoopid things to doo, they've kicked it up a notch. Videos and Pics at link.

    An 11-year-old girl has been left with second-degree burns after she 'used a candle to take part in a fire challenge'.

    The child, who has not been named, from Pinellas County, Florida, gutted her home during the deadly dare.

    The blaze started in her bedroom and three other people were in the house when it set alight two weeks ago, but they made it out unscathed.

    The girl's sister Monessia Rhoden said on a fundraising page: 'Sadly, my 11-year-old little sister was severely burned in the fire trying to extinguish it, and is now In Tampa General hospital burn unit.

    'Luckily, no one else was hurt, but my sister is facing a long, painful road to recovery.'

    Her mother added her daughter had second-degree burns on her hands, stomach, thighs and chest, underwent surgery but was released from hospital on Wednesday.

    The fire challenge sees people film themselves dousing their bodies in accelerant and lighting it.

    If you are stupid enough to take a fire challenge, you deserve to burn

    How can any sane person, even an 11 year old, think this would end OK?

    I'm not gonna lie my brother and I used to spray hair spray on our hands and light it. It burned up and I a few milliseconds and the flame was gone. We also made little flame throwers with wd40 and a lighter.

    All in all, Darwin was probably onto something.

    Ah, previously, the Tide pod and swallowing a large amount of cinnamon, what else will the mentally deranged think of next?

    Smart phones are a double edged sword. They have many useful capabilities but social media is a vicious, corrosive mess that does far more harm than good. Just spreads way too many lies, disinformation and rumors. And considering most glocktalk users are on the conservative side, it just aids leftists in their bid to rapidly push the US toward socialism. Don

    not exactly sure what that means BUT my older brother was a bed wetter. And once in the middle of the night he got up and peed in the trash can. True story.

    Common Sense ain't so common, apparently.

    Idiot Generation. Yes, these are the future leaders of this country. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    Stoopid is as stoopid does to paraphrase Forrest. This will thin the gene pool early on.

    Thanks for the heads up @FullClip, these are tough to keep up with! :wavey:

    For those of you with kids, especially teenagers, be sure to talk about this kind of stuff with them. Even good kids can get caught up in stuff like this.

    My boys are 13 and 14 1/12 and this like all the others will be discussed. My own approach is to talk man to man with my boys, I speak to them as if they were men my age and we were in locker room. I use words like dumbass and dip***t and let them do the same. I remind them that they are always better off being the guy standing there saying "I told you so dumbass!" rather than being the dip***t laying there waiting for the ambulance.

    I think what happens is some kids have lived super sheltered lives and missed out on all the small painful experiences that teach you to not to mess with certain things.

    Kind of like crashing a bike a slow speeds teaches you how bad it would hurt if you crashed bombing down that big hill.
