Neknominate? Apparently, I haven't been keeping track of what the cool kids are doing.

They keep trying to make this a "thing" and it isn't working..

Neknominate? If they are ignorant enough to do something that stupid, just let darwin have his way. They are obviously defective and need to be reprocessed.

Craze?

First I've heard of it, and I'm on the Interwebulators a lot. A lot!

I'm going to go give this a try. I'm so goddamned bored right now. Yes, I am at work. I am bored at work.

I hear Jenkum is all the rage now.

I was gonna try some at a party, but it smelled like shiat.

I read that as "Nekromantik" and more than my interest was aroused.

Craze made up by tabloid writers is being done by imaginary kids in elementary schools.

Well, I rummaged around Google for a bit and the term appears to be only at most a few years old.  Don't feel bad, you're not alone...

If we let this go on and kill people how will MTV be able to bring us great reality tv in the future like Jersey Shore.

When i first heard of this, I predicted it would turn out to be another 4chan fakery, another made-up "thing" for the media to seize on and then 4channers to go "Ha-Ha."

I still think I'm right, except that it got out of hand when non-media dumbasses took it seriously too.

I read this and had to try it. I am in the process of downing a revolting mix of dry vermouth and gin. With OLIVES! I can barely gag in down. But I will percervere...persever...pershaver...keep on keeping on....for you.

I liked the idea of Rainbow parties better.  Really wish that had taken off.

If it weren't for the pearl clutchers, I never would have heard about this.  Mission accomplished.

Amateurs, back in Soviet Poland in the late 80s and early 90s, if you didn't steal opium poppies to make 'drank' or huffed shoe glue by the time you hit fifth grade you were clearly doing it wrong.

//CSB, had friends as young as 12 prostituting and as young as 9 drinking 100-proof. Pleading the fifth on my own shenanigans. Good thing we didn't have camera phones, or cameras, or phones for that matter to incriminate ourselves with!

When I was a kid the only activity we had to keep ourselves occupied with was choking each other until we nearly passed out. That and nubile recreational sex on the grass alongside babbling brooks with the warm summer sun tanning our taut, young bodies entwined in innocent, halycon ecstasy. Kids have it so good now what with their nekonomicons and their crocodiles.

I got a kick out of CNN's "DEADLY NEW GAME..." headlines, followed closely by, "HOW IT'S PLAYED..."

If you're going to be outraged at the game, don't explain at great length how to farking play the game.

darig your friends to chug tasty shiat, tht never happened before the internets.
 
2014-02-21 06:39:30 PM  
What the hell did I just read?

My favorite part was "police warn that if you issue a dare/nomination, you face charges!"

'Scuse me, how is it my fault that the other person is a dumbass?

Are you sure - currently running with this one on Facebook :

I've been Nic Nominated. The idea is to occupy Facebook with pictures of Nicolas Cage to break the monotony of pictures that aren't Nicolas Cage. Whoever likes this post will be given a mood and has to post a picture of Nicolas Cage in that mood I was given '<Nick doing/looking something something>'.

I don't understand the issue.

The kid drank a lot and felt ill from it.  Mixing your liquor with various things is called 'making a cocktail'.  Mixing it with things that don't go well together, such as  mayonaise, nando's hot sauce (even closer to red sugar water than tabasco is), is just making a bad cocktail.

Is the craze "Children abysmally bad at making mixed drinks" ?  Is the remediation to buy them a copy of 'The American Bar' and intern at a trendy club?

Or is this really just a "oh my god, kids drink, and somehow we didn't know that!!!!" fluff piece?

Guys. It's a thing in Australia and possibly Britain. Not sure why it keeps getting greenlit here since we're all Muricans and the word "nek" has zero meaning in the USA.

NekNominate? Just when I finally learned how to enjoy butt-chugging!

This is a thing?

Does this mean Milhouse is a meme now?

When I was a kid I got sent off to sleepaway camp, and we did something very much like this pretty much every week at Friday dinner, albeit minus the vodka.  I highly doubt it started with us.

Damned hysterical parents.  Little Braeden and Mykynzie are not in danger.  The worst thing that can happen is that the kids barf like fashion models at a cake-and-toothbrush store, then feel hungover for a while.

I like to think that its cleaning the Gene pool.

Just like the Knockout Game?

Pfffffffffft, everyone knows the cool kids are doing Krokodil nowadays. It's really good for keeping off the pounds too, especially all those carbs from downing booze in a Neknominate game. Sound crazy? Ok, just do a little Scopolamine and think it over.
 
2014-02-21 09:11:19 PM  
Doesn't sound much different from a few initiations I went through in undergrad.

What the police said...almost sounds like a dare.

Neknominate?  Is that like the guys from Chronicles of Riddick?  No, I did not read the article.
 
2014-02-21 10:34:29 PM  
At first I read that as "Necronomicon"
 
2014-02-21 10:50:31 PM  
I have no idea what this "neknominate craze" is. Am I officially old now?
I can't afford a convertible

Well, 10 is probably a bit younger than usual for drinking vodka and filming it.

Beyond that it's another level of frat type binging, but more public, with a nice internet record to both increase the peer pressure and the public consequences.
They're using way more alcohol than is a remotely good idea to guzzle all at once, and some of them are mixing in non-food/drink items, or stuff that isn't a good idea to drink in quantity, so it's a bit more than just tasting bad.

Nekking a beer is guzzling a beer.
