    If the future of America is today’s youth, then this country is in some very serious trouble. Not only are the nation’s college campuses incubators of anti-Americanism and cultural Marxism but those who have yet to reach that level of “education” are not a promising crop.

    The latest fad among teenagers?

    Eating Tide laundry detergent pods and posting the videos on social media. This is not a joke.

    According to a CBS News report “Teens are eating laundry detergent for the ‘Tide Pod Challenge'”:

    A government watchdog is expressing concern over the dangerous misuse of a laundry detergent. In this latest social media fad, teenagers are putting detergent pods in their mouths in what’s being called the “Tide Pod Challenge.”

    Ingredients in the pods include ethanol, hydrogen peroxide and polymers – a highly-toxic mix of detergent meant to wipe out dirt and grime. Manufacturers have been concerned about toddlers mistakenly ingesting them, but now teens are popping them on purpose and posting videos of the results online, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner.

    Nineteen-year-old Marc Pagan, who did it on a dare, told CBS News he knew better but did it anyway.

    “A lot of people were just saying how stupid I was or how – why would I be willing to do that,” he said. “No one should be putting anything like that in their mouths, you know?”

    Ann Marie Buerkle, acting chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission, says ingesting any of the liquid carries a deadly risk.

    “This is what started out as a joke on the internet and now it’s just gone too far,” Buerkle said.

    The pods are bright and colorful and to children they can look like candy. At least 10 deaths have been linked to ingesting these pods. Two were toddlers, eight were seniors with dementia.

    Procter & Gamble, the maker of Tide products, told CBS News: “They should not be played with… Even if meant as a joke. Safety is no laughing matter.”

    Kids then | “DONT WASH MY MOUTH OUT WITH SOAP MOM!”

    The article also has at least one link to a future brain surgeon taking the challenge

    One of my nieces did the Siracha sauce challenge. But that's not going to kill the average teen. Plus, she likes hot sauce.

    It doesn't seem right without a fabric softener chaser.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
    21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
    And clever in their own sight! Isaiah 5:20-21 NASB

    I blame this on rap music.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Sarcasm is the spoonful of sugar that helps the bitter pill go down
