I used salt and ice cubes to clean burned-in stains in coffee pots.

Don't know how that could possibly be germane to the discussion but what the hell.

It's also pretty common knowledge that adding salt to ice in a beverage tub or ice bucket will speed up the time it takes for the drinks to get cold.

Stupid kid.

Yes, because a 10 year old kid in the year 2012 will know about an old fashion ice cream maker.

Or a 10 year old will know about advanced chemical reactions.

Expect a lawsuit from this one.

Wether it's Facebook or the idiot that created the page.

I'll certainly agree with that. That was even more stupid

Hey guys! Want to make cool crystals? All you need is some ammonia and bleach and some pennies to act as the catalyst. This is TOTALLY legit, awesome.

Maybe YOU did.

//My identical twin sister shaved off one of her eyesbrows when she was 11 yoa because she saw my older sister plucking her eyesbrows and thought that it looked pretty. It hurt instead so she took a razor and shaved off one whole eyebrow before she got scared enough to come and find us. We laugh about this every Christmas.

FTA: I want parents to go to Facebook and YouTube to be aware of it and all the other Internet challenges," she said. "Kids are so impressionable and you can tell them no until you are blue in the face."

Clueless mom forgets that the kids are impressionable in that if they're restricted from doing something it will go up to the top of the list of things to do.

You scoffers are living in a science-based reality. I bet you think modern medicine will save this kid's life. Let me tell you: all this kid's family and friends will attest that JESUS saved his life. Either way: teh j00s.

How do pennies fit in? That's new to me. I didn't think that was a necessary part of the equation. I guess I need to add some stuff to my riot survival kit.

Haven't RTFT yet, but we used to do the same shiat in high school, in the mid '90's. Not quite THAT extreme, as in the article, or large I suppose... but yeah. We were stupid death-metallers.
