gopher321: OK, what am I missing here. You drink a pint of beer, then tell someone else to do it as well...what's dangerous about it?
Diogenes: But yeah...I was thinking it was a pint of vodak or something. Apparently not.
Timmy the Tumor: I don't drink much, but isn't "16 ounces of beer in 24 hours" a reasonably safe thing to do?
sigdiamond2000: The brother of 19-year-old Jonny Byrne, from County Carlow, posted an emotional message on Facebook saying, "This neck nomination shiat has to stop right now. My young 19-year-old brother died tonight in the middle of his nomination. He thought he had to try and beat the competition and after he downed his pint he jumped into the river. If people have any decency and respect they will refrain from any of this stupid neck nomination shiat."He also changed his profile page to say "Stop 'Neknomination' before it's too late. Share this."[i1.ytimg.com image 480x360]

MrPleasant: I suppose it depends on if they truly wait 24 hrs or not. Essentially, if you have two people involved who continue to challenge each other, best case you drink every 48 hours. But, if you go out drinking together and each have 1 beer and challenge the other to a beer now you have 1 more to drink. And, when you drink that one, you challenge back. And, assuming that you continue to challenge you are now at 1 beer / day going forward.So, essentially you can get to a point where you may need to daily drink the worst case single beer drinking session.And the other thing would be people ganging up. i.e. It's John's 21st. 10 friends drink 1 beer = John drinks 10 beers.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: The bad thing is it's always young black thugs nominating helpless old white folks.
