There have been some extremely dangerous internet challenges going around the internet that people are actually attempting in hopes to go viral. Most of these challenges have resulted in permanent damage and in some cases death.
A 12-year-old Detroit girl now has burns on 49% of her body after attempting the 'Fire Challenge.' In the challenge, you are to pour flammable liquid on yourself and set it on fire and try to put the fire out. It is as dumb as it sounds.
The 'Hot Water Challenge' is much like the 'Fire Challenge' in the sense that it will burn your flesh. In this challenge, you are to pour boiling water on yourself. But if that does not intrigue, the challenge also says you can drink the boiling water through a straw.
In the infamous 'Tide Pod Challenge', you are to eat, one of these laundry detergent packs. As many people know, laundry detergent is poisonous and even if it doen not kill you, you will become very sick.
The 'Taser Challenge' is perhaps one of the most dangerous internet challenges. In the challenge, you are to put a butterknife in your mouth and touch it to a firing taser. The challenge has led to permanent nerve damage, minor brain damage and even death.
The 'Deodorant Challenge' is silly in nature but can cause major damage to a person's skin. In the challnge, you are to get an aerosol deodorant and continuously spray the can on your skin until you cannot take it anymore. The harsh spray eventually will leave a mark that can become permanent.
The 'Choking Challenge' involve you or someone else choking you until you pass out. The goal is for you to wake up after a few minutes and have the feeling of coming back alive. But unfortunately, some of those who do pass out do not wake up.
We've all used erasers to fix our mistakes, but some people have been using them to create mistakes. The 'Eraser Challenge' is when people take rubber erasers, such as the ones on backs of pencils, and rub them vigorously on your skin. This will cause scars that can become permanent.
The 'Condom Snorting Challenge' is exactly what it sounds like. You are to snort a condom of your choice through your nose and pull it out of your mouth. As you can expect, this created problems as the condoms would get caught in people's noses and throats and would need medical treatment to get the prophylactic out. Try telling that to your parents.
The 'Salt and Ice Challenge' involves you putting salt on your body and pressing ice onto it. For anyone who has seen what salt does when it is poured on ice in the winter time could imagine what it does to skin.
The 'Duct Tape Challenge' involves you trying to perfrom your best Houdini impression. In the challenge, you are duct taped head to toe on a chair and you have to try to escape. Other than the fact that ripping the tape off will be painful, trying to break out will also lead to injuries through the constant strain of muscles or falling over.
This next one may be hard to hear if you don't like eye drops. The 'Eyeballing Challenge' involves you getting drunk by pouring alcohol into your eyes to get drunk. As you can imagine, alcohol doesn't do great things for the rest of your body, it won't do much good for your eyes. Some people lost their vision attempting the challenge.
The 'Cinnamon Challenge' has thankfully died out but it was one of the earliest internet challenges that had dnagerous outcomes. The challenge involves you trying to swallow a spoonful of ground cinnamon. The powder is extremely dry and spicy and sticks to the inside of your mouth and throat when you try to swallow making it incredibly hard to breathe.
