Top Ten Worst Internet Challenges
This challenge makes me disappointed in this generation. It would also made 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. A lot 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.
Seriously, why do people think it's a good idea to play with fire and light themselves on fire? Whoever invented this challenge has a brain that is the size of a flea, it can kill you pretty easily!
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, and how, even if I thought I saw someone come up with a "safe" way to eat one, that 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.
Some people from what I've read actually lost their lives doing this challenge. I don't even know why these were a thing, but this was a really dark time for internet
Whoever that idiot is for making a so-called challenge to have people be poisoned to death by eating a Tide Pod that is not meant to be eaten deserves to be buried six feet under! The moral of the story, don't create stupid trends for the sake of attention!
Bleach is made of chlorine. Chlorine is a poisonous greenish gas. It is dangerous in 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.
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. And this is why I still don't have a lot of social media.
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 which 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 of a high building, which always results in... well, you know. I know I would never want to do that!
This is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. People harming themselves for a idiotic challenge. Come on people have some self respect
What I find really disgusting about these types of challenges is just 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 advice against compressing and blocking oxygen from getting into the chest and throat. Engaging in these stupid challenges shows an utter disregard for ones own life as well as people who had encounters with near death through no fault of their own, like in a war zone or living in a really rough area.
This is very retarded. Unless the whole audience are extreme Darth Vader fans, these people are dumb. And if they're those Darth Vader fans after all, they're still very dumb.
I once accidently swallowed a whole ice cube when drinking water, it melted pretty quickly. I wouldn't really say it counts as the challenge though.
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 would likely die if the pain and bleeding got to extreme levels.
I can't believe people would do this on YouTube now.
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 get autism. I truly hope this challenge gets banned from the internet.
Apparently, this was originally meant to help donate money to treat autism or smth, but now some idiots were misusing this trend and turned it into an offensive trend. This trend needs to be banned from the internet as a whole now.
I hate the fact that this was originally to help donate to charities for people with autism and people made it so disgusting.
This is actually mean to those who are autistic. Whoever created this challenge should get a puzzle piece for a brain.
Not only is this challenge dangerous, it's disgusting! Bathrooms are gross enough as it is, but school bathrooms? School just about anything? I squirm at the thought of licking anything in a school - and the thought that kids licked stuff just to get sick and "get out of school"? Yuck.
How retarded do you have to be to do that? There is nothing dirtier than a toilet seat. If you lick one, you are basically liking particles of poop and pee. Even worse if it's a public toilet, you don't know who last used it.
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?
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 poop on your brand new shirt/dress/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 disgust me and shows me what our society is like today. You could actually die from this this is a terrible challenge. If your going to think about doing this stop! Your going to kill someone else. This is practically murder. Its time to stop guys. -Alyssa
How would you even get the poop without getting it from a toilet? Also, imagine having poop stains on your face. Not to mention, it contains a lot of germs and bacteria.
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.
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 loose consciousness?
What is this? You try to make yourself faint. Well this is easy for me, all I have to do is kneel and then quickly get up. Or not take my iron pills. Fainting sucks.
This is ridiculous
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!
Boiled water is no joke, and these people drench themselves in it.
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 suicide attempt of a challenge. Go look it up. I'm dead serious.
I'm not 100% sure, but I've heard of another type of ground cinnamon that is much safer to eat. Someone tell me if this is true or not because I don't know.
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, and you could choke from that.
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 I think the catcus 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
Not very dangerous if you do it right but still very stupid. You would have to cut it right.
The backpack challenge was actually one of the few internet challenges that I found entertaining.
This is one of the best internet challenges, why the hell is it on this list?
You throw backpacks at people and they get hurt.
I'd never heard of this one until I saw this list, but it's quite scary too think that people someone would even decide that inciting violence was the best thing that they could do with their platform.
This should be much higher on the list. Momo literally told millions of children to kill themselves or other people. How is Aunt Jemima Syrup Challenge above this.
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's gone downhill along with the internet with all the stupid and even dangerous craze.
It's not a game and it's not funny, it's cruel and evil and we need to respect each other.
The moment I burn my tongue on a hot cappuccino, it's painful for 3 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.
I am sorry but this should be wayyy 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 that! (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 bruh-
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 does the challenge. Why?...
Can cause second degree burns very easily.
I have a taser gun, but I don't use it unless it's an emergency like someone breaking into your house. Don't waist the electricity on this weapon for stupid games.
The name alone tells you that it's going to be a really bad challenge.
These are all so stupid!
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 4 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.
I did it twice I'm stupid I now have 2 scars.
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 and 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. Just a little gross in 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
Those videos use to be about anti body shaming, and not judging a book by it's cover. But now we have narcissistic people who make fun of people of what they consider ugly, by giving themselves a fake uni brows, 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 cringe worthy because they're being offensive and stupid with their arrogant selves, and yet they couldn't fix on what was on the inside.
Think this was an originally good-hearted challenge that was unfortunately ruined by bad people who want to mock people with body traits they don't find attractive. Kind of like the Autism challenge.
I know that people want feel confident for who they are, especially their looks and that's great. But people who do this challenge is 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.
