Top Ten Worst Internet Challenges

The Top Ten
1 Fire Challenge

This challenge makes me disappointed in this generation. It would also make me extremely concerned for my life if anyone decided to push me into doing this challenge. Not to mention, burning alive is one of the most painful ways to die.

What's next? The melted gold challenge? The brazen bull challenge? The breaking wheel challenge? The skinned, dipped in hand sanitizer, and deep-fried alive challenge? This challenge can be a one-way ticket to one of the worst deaths possible.

Whoever invented or does this challenge has the lowest IQ in history. Many of them just lead to people's deaths. What's next? Carbon monoxide challenge? Drop bricks on your head challenge? Get run over challenge? Enough with these deadly challenges.

2 Tide Pod Challenge

This is one of the few challenges on this list that I knew a fair amount about before coming to the list. I remember people in school talking about it with disgust but also fear. How many people had to die before the concept of it being "trendy" would end?

My dad and I were in the car one day, and he gave a full speech about how deadly the chemicals in Tide Pods were. Even if I thought I saw someone come up with a "safe" way to eat one, that person was wrong and most likely dead. It was one of those moments in my life when I could start to see the real-world, bigger-picture issues melting into my daily life.

3 Bleach Drinking Challenge

Bleach is made of chlorine. Chlorine is a poisonous greenish gas. It is dangerous for our health. Bleach is not soda.

It's honestly amazing how stupid people can get. If any of my friends push me to do this challenge, I'm leaving them.

This challenge, and others like it, prey upon the greatest weaknesses of young people: thinking they are invincible.

4 Blue Whale Challenge

This is a real thing. It was on a YouTube video I was watching by Shane Dawson. How it works is, there's a game master who is a real person who gives the players 50 dangerous challenges, and they can't quit, just like the movie Nerve. The final challenge is always to jump off a high building, which always results in... well, you know. I know I would never want to do that!

I remember when this challenge came back around 2018 or sometime around that year. I was scared that I might become a victim of this challenge, but then relieved when I realized I didn't have social media. This is why I still don't have a lot of social media.

5 Choking Challenge

What I find really disgusting about these types of challenges is how terrible the parents must be if they have children who end up engaging in these dangerous and fatal practices. Anything involving even mild forms of asphyxiation is a big no-no, and medical professionals strongly advise against compressing and blocking oxygen from getting into the chest and throat.

Engaging in these stupid challenges shows an utter disregard for one's own life, as well as for people who had near-death encounters through no fault of their own, like in a war zone or living in a really rough area.

6 1000 Degree Knife Challenge

If I wanted to do this challenge, I'd at least wear heat protection gear and do it outside. I highly doubt that a lot of people who tried to do this challenge took the proper precautions. You can literally get 3rd degree burns and die from this, and it's sad I even have to say this in the first place. Stick to watching other (likely) trained people doing this.

All you're gonna do is burn yourself and end up in pain for hours after getting one of the worst cuts possible. Also, you could die if the pain and bleeding reach extreme levels.

7 Autism Challenge

I was curious and decided to look this up. I kind of wish I didn't. This is just... why? Hate to sound like a snowflake, but I think this can be offensive to people on the autism spectrum, and it can also fuel stereotyping and discrimination against those unfortunate enough to have autism. I truly hope this challenge gets banned from the internet.

Apparently, this was originally meant to help donate money to treat autism or something, but now some idiots are misusing this trend and turning it into an offensive trend. This trend needs to be banned from the internet as a whole now.

8 Covid-19 Licking Toilet Seat Challenge

Not only is this challenge dangerous, it's disgusting! Bathrooms are gross enough as they are, but school bathrooms? I squirm at the thought of licking anything in a school. The idea that kids licked stuff just to get sick and "get out of school"? Yuck.

Ok, this challenge is downright nasty! Don't people know that toilet seats collect a lot of germs? How dumb do you have to be to lick a seat that had a bunch of butts sitting on it before?

Wonderful. Just wonderful. You are most certainly a moron if you did this.

9 Poop in Face Challenge

If I thought the "Covid-19 Licking Toilet" Challenge was bad, then this is beyond it. Bruh, what if someone just comes up to you and poops on your brand-new shirt, dress, or skirt? How would you feel?

But the main question is, why is this even a thing in the first place? There is ZERO sense in it, and it makes you and your family and friends look crazy! I feel bad for the parents of whoever created this challenge for giving birth to someone who had the idea of this. This challenge disgusts me and shows me what our society is like today.

You could actually die from this. This is a terrible challenge. If you're going to think about doing this, stop! You're going to kill someone else. This is practically murder. It's time to stop, guys.

10 Kylie Jenner Challenge

Who would want comically large lips? It's not attractive in the slightest. This challenge's existence makes no sense. Don't ruin your own lips for life.

Nobody even likes this chick, so I have absolutely no idea why people were stupid enough to ruin their own lips.

Is that Colleen Ballinger? Another reason why this challenge is a steaming hot dumpster fire.

The Contenders
11 Fainting Challenge

This is easy to do if you have anxiety or PTSD or something else similar. Just think of everything that scares you and think of all the bad memories you've ever had in your entire life.

You may have a panic attack, then you might faint... or go into a coma... or get a heart attack...

But seriously, it's not safe.

I already have epilepsy. I don't need to be challenged to go to cloud nine for a while to do it. (And a few years back - maybe seventh grade? - I got really good at faking it. I don't fake it anymore, though.) But who needs to be challenged to do this when you already have a semi-automatic reflex in your brain to lose consciousness?

12 Aunt Jemima Syrup Challenge
13 Boiled Water Challenge

This will hurt for weeks! Some guy on YouTube said his girlfriend dumped boiling water on his arm. I feel bad for the guy. He could've ended up in the hospital.

Why the hell would you do this? I got burnt from boiling water while cooking on my arm, and it hurt for weeks every time I rested my arm.

Drinking this is clearly worse than just drinking hot sink water.

14 Cinnamon Challenge

Bruh, this just goes to show how stupid some people can be. This challenge can literally kill you.

Not-so-fun fact: iShowSpeed literally attempted this suicidal challenge. Go look it up. I'm dead serious.

My dad told me not to do it. At first, I thought it was just eating cinnamon, but I was wrong. Eating it very fast, you could choke from that.

The cinnamon itself isn't harmful. It's the fact that you can inhale the cinnamon dust, which is really bad for your lungs.

15 Cactus Eating Challenge

People can actually eat cacti, but you have to prepare it properly. Not only because it will make your insides a pasta strainer, but also because I think the cactus has bacteria that will make you sick when consumed raw.

Ouch! Have you heard cacti have spikes that hurt and can stab and cut at your throat and stomach if you swallow one? Why would someone make this challenge?

Not very dangerous if you do it right, but still very stupid. You have to cut it properly.

16 The Momo Challenge

I'd never heard of this one until I saw this list, but it's quite scary to think that someone would decide that inciting violence was the best thing they could do with their platform.

It's a hoax where kids were enticed by a user named Momo to perform a series of dangerous and harmful tasks, such as violence and even suicide. It just shows you how far society has gone downhill, along with the internet, with all the stupid and even dangerous crazes.

It's not a game, and it's not funny. It's cruel and evil, and we need to respect each other.

17 Backpack Challenge

You throw backpacks at people, and they get hurt.

18 Hot Water Challenge

What?! The moment I burn my tongue on a hot cappuccino, it's painful for three days! But pouring boiling water on a random person? I've lost faith in humanity.

Great way to fry your taste buds. Plus, you could scald your throat, and that would be painful because you couldn't eat anymore.

19 Salt & Ice Challenge

I mean, you are making a thing that is freezing to the point of being able to cause third-degree burns, and then putting your hand in there.

One question to the people who do this challenge. Why?

This can cause second-degree burns very easily.

20 Bird Box Challenge

I am sorry, but this should be way higher! Why? Let me explain. The Bird Box Challenge is you basically doing everything you would do, but with your eyes closed. Even stuff that is way too dangerous for you to do! (I.E.: driving, working, walking, running, etc.) People actually have died from this! Look it up. Whoever came up with this challenge should be labeled as the person with the lowest I.Q. in history.

Why, just why? If you do this, you could get in a crash or something if you do this like eyes closed while you're working or driving.

21 Taser Gun Challenge

I have a taser gun, but I don't use it unless it's an emergency like someone breaking into my house. Don't waste the electricity on this weapon for stupid games.

The name alone tells you that it's going to be a really bad challenge.

22 Charlie Charlie Challenge

Two kids in my class tried it, and I was sitting behind them. I whispered to my friends, "Watch this," and I blew the pencils. The kids freaked out. It was so funny.

I can go all day about how pointless these challenges are. Seriously, people, only a four-year-old would believe such a dumbass thing.

It's not really harmful. It's just stupid. It's entertaining watching people go nuts over a pencil's orientation, though.

23 Eraser Challenge

I did it twice. I'm stupid. I now have two scars.

24 Bug Eating Challenge

Eating bugs isn't a challenge if you are a really beefy big man with a sweaty forehead and big arms that have veins that pop out and pulsate. If you are not eating buckets of slimy squirming pink earthworms by the handful, that's crazy.

Some people around the world eat bugs, so if you look at it from that perspective, it's not that bad. It's just a little gross from our perspective.

I'm just worried that people will start eating poisonous bugs and dying.

I think there is nothing wrong with this! People all over the world eat bugs like we eat hamburgers, and they are doing just fine. A lot of people actually say grasshoppers taste like chicken.

25 Don't Judge Me Challenge

Those videos used to be about anti-body shaming and not judging a book by its cover. But now we have narcissistic people who make fun of what they consider ugly by giving themselves fake unibrows, pimples or bad acne, glasses, gap teeth, and trying to appear fat. Then at the end, they show off their beauty after getting dolled up.

It's cringeworthy because they're being offensive and stupid with their arrogant selves, and yet they can't fix what's on the inside.

I know that people want to feel confident for who they are, especially their looks, and that's great. But people who do this challenge are ridiculously annoying! They use makeup to portray fake stuff like acne. I actually had acne in middle school. People do know that acne does not go away like that.
