Well, it didn't kill him, so next week he's going to participate in the wildly popular "AIDS challenge." If he wins that, he goes on to the "Ebola challenge" in the finals. Good luck young man!

Since he did it, does he get out of giving money to charity now?

Hey look...

It turns out, you CAN fix stupid.

She failed the challenge. Now all the world will laugh at her for being a failure.

Wow, the stupid DOES burn.
 
2014-08-04 12:07:23 PM  
He wanted to "beat" a video he saw online? How is something like this scored?

If he has insurance, I hope they refuse to pay for the surgeries since the burn was deliberately self inflicted.

Someone needs to take one for the team and start the ricin challange. That or the ebola challange because it seems to be hip these days.

My new fake Youtube video has me using white phosphorus, which has a "slower, more controlled" burn than nail polish, and will get many more hits. If I can get at least three teenagers to try it, I will have won. Right now the difficulty is finding a chemical recipe that they can figure out, since they are of a generation where the chemistry sets don't have actual chemicals.

And before you old f*rts start saying Youtube's TOS won't allow that, you're completely wrong. You can do an underwater-bondage-chained-to-bowling-ball-in-freezing-lake challenge, as long as you don't expose any nipples in the process...

Hopefully he burned his dick completely off so he can't breed.

At least when he finally finds the girl of his dreams, she'll have to be an amazing person to ignore the burns all over his torso and neck, as well as his staggering idiocy.

Or he'll lie about how he got them and use them to get lots of tail with the sympathy card.

I thought this "fire challenge" was as real as Jenkem...nobody could be that retarded, right?... until I looked it up on YouTube. Goddamn.

We all did stupid stuff with fire (our favorite was discovering that industrial size can of Lysol + fireplace match = badass flamethrower), but to actually pour shiat ON YOURSELF then light it? Wow...just wow.

Well, you can't get any ass via the 'read a book' challenge.
 
2014-08-04 12:24:54 PM  
Yeah thanks for wasting America's tax dollars burning your dumbass and getting treatment. I swear, insurance needs to strait up deny claims from retarded people who hurt themselves doing dumb shiat. I'm more than happy paying taxes to support people with life threatening illness and injury, for children and elderly too. But idiots like this guy, not so much. I think in situations like this they really need to go balls deep into investigating what happened to they can deny his ass coverage for being a moron.

As much as I played with fire when I was a kid not once did I ever think about setting fire to myself on purpose, by accident hmmmm maybe once or twice.

Of course he's going to say that.  He's a teenager and they're selfish, they don't want you to know about the extreme adrenaline and endorphin rush that comes from participating in The Fire Challenge.  Frankly I feel bad for those who haven't tried it yet.  It's a rush that makes you forget about all of the other petty little problems in life and makes you focus on living in the moment.  It's worth trying out at least once.

Nobody can get hold of white phosphorus. Go directly for the Thermite Challenge. It'll be a long while before regulators get all the aluminum and rust locked down. Plenty of time for tough kids to master the challenge of molten, actually boiling, iron.

Look at it this way. It gives them a chance to become literally our best and brightest. At least until the white-hot iron cools off.

My idiot nephew did ityears ago, I think around 2008. Someone created a music video of it too. We are so proud of the moron. He is now immortalized as a gif as well.

With any luck he roasted his nuts so he can't bring any more dumbasses into the world. Unfortunately he has a little brother who is just as dumb but hasn't managed to do anything stupid enough to save the rest of the gene pool.

Who INVENTED this?
I could come up with a challenge a million times safer than this off the top of my head. Here:img.fark.net(image taken from http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=34633140   )
Put one of these in your mouth and suck on it for 30 seconds. No fluids, gum, or sweet things and no biting down.
See? One million times safer than lighting yourself on FIRE!

Not enough thrill. The sourness comes from citric acid. You can get the kids to try to be like this guy and dip the candy in different substances, each time they hope they get the sour one. Pick the wrong one? It's a blast!

csb alert:

Back in my young & stupid years (yes there was a period that was identifiable as MORE stupid than the rest...) I used to make a lot of ____ & discovered that one component of making _____ was a quite thick syrupy substance that was also quite flammable.  I had a friend who also enjoyed making ____ & also had some of this syrupy substance.   One day, the reasons are long lost in the mysts of time, he dipped his finger into this substance, stared at it a bit & then suddenly lit it on fire.  I was quite surprised at this sudden turn of events & stared slack jawed at my friend waving his hand around quickly for 20 seconds or so & then plunging his hand into a bucket of water.  After pulling his extinguished hand out my friend looked at it & said "It worked, I knew it would" "Huh?" was my brilliant reply.  "I was thinking that because this ____ is so thick that if I put it on my hand, lit it on fire & then waved my hand around, the flame would stay on the surface & not burn through to my skin".  Sure enough, his finger was not burned & he then tried it with a bigger patch on the back of his hand with the same results.  The test on the arm failed & got a minor burn because the hair there created a wick effect that sucked the flame right to the skin.  However hands worked great due to the lack of hair. This being the coolest thing us jr scientists had ever come up with we spent the next couple of weeks setting our hands seemingly on fire (mothers don't make appreciative audiences for such things we found out...) & walking away unscathed.  So I can see how this 'game' could come about even if it is one of the dumber ideas that mankind ever came up with.

End not so C of the SB (due to the flames involved...).

These days looking back I'm so thankful that YouTube didn't exist nor did small cheap recording devices as I really doubt that I/we would have made it through those years with as few scars as we managed to collect.  The opportunity to show the world what dumbasses we were would have been too tempting to resist.

/the name of ____ deliberately left out so that today's crop of potential Darwin Award winners don't get ideas.  They have enough bad ones all by themselves, they don't need to recycle any of mine.

I remember way back when my brother and our neighbor AKA Carlos the terrorist, a name give to him by the neighborhood, were pouring remote control car fuel down the drain and lighting it on fire. It made a nice flame so they would just keep pouring, well the over poured and the flame shot into the bottle and spread all over the bathroom and them. My brother burnt his legs and our neighbor burnt his arms and legs. The shower curtian melted, the rug had burn holes in it even the toilet paper was on fire. Well the neighbors parents could give a shiat, but my folks would have killed my brother so for the whole summer he wore long pants to hide his burns. The hair never grew back on his legs and he has no burn scars.

2014-08-04 02:00:42 PM  
Huh.  Never heard of this crap before.

I'd try it, but I don't have a Nomex fire suit handy.  And only a complete moron would set himself on fire without one on while having a bunch of firemen standing around with extinguishers.  There are ways to relatively safely do a human torch.  None of them involve this kind of crap.
